Heating and insulation are vital when it comes to new house building and renovating existing properties. More and more ways of insulating the house are available nowadays such as double glazing windows and roof insulation boarding. The aim is to keep heat in the house and to not waste money on unnecessary heating bills. But, whilst the times have changed with on the insulation front, classic steel radiators can lead to heating bills being high due to the time it takes for the radiators to heat up.
This is where aluminium radiators come into their own. Whilst steel radiators require your condensing boiler heating system to run at a much higher temperature in order to heat up the house, aluminium radiators require a lot less. Aluminium is a much better conductor of heat, which means you can run your heating system on a lower temperature as the radiator will heat up faster and will give transfer the heat from the water inside it to the room a lot faster than the conventional steel panel radiator. The result of this is that you will not need your heating on for as long as you usually would as the aluminium radiators are so fast to heat up. Improved convector design within aluminium radiators is just another reason why the heat transfer is much faster compared to other products on the market.
Another benefit of aluminium radiators is the fact that they are a lot lighter compared to steel radiators. This makes installation a lot easier and also opens up the option of putting radiators on walls that you may have doubted will be able to hold the weight of a radiator.
During the early steps of the aluminium radiator becoming figure within the heating market, the aesthetic aspect of the radiators left a lot to be desired. This approach has dramatically changed with the likes of Eastgate Radiators, Reina Design Radiators and Hudson Reed adding style and chic to these efficient and practical radiators. Two perfect examples are shown below with the Reina Luca aluminium designer radiators and the Hudson Reed Ceylon aluminium designer radiators.
