Radiators: One of the Oldest and Most Effective Ways of Heating Your Home
Despite being one of the oldest home heating systems, radiators are still desirable because of their ability to efficiently heat a room.
And now, they’ve got even better!
How Your Radiators Work
Radiators work by drawing heat from water or steam and by using that heat to warm up the surroundings. They are made of metal because metals are excellent conductors of heat. Radiators don’t have blowers. Why? Because the circulating air around the room does all the work! As warm air rises, cooler air comes in to take its place — creating a current of air around the radiator.
Instead of using steam, which creates pressure build up in the radiator, hydronic radiators simply use hot water to heat up the surrounding air. The water is heated up by a boiler and after it reaches a desired temperature (not boiling), it’s pumped from the heater through all radiators in the home. As the water passes through each radiator it loses some of its heat. Finally, it becomes too cool to effectively heat up a radiator and makes it back to the heater once again for reheating.
Standard Radiator Range
For something a little less formal and for those projects where cost constraints may be an issue we have the Standard Range of Radiators. This Range, while simplistic in design will still provide the same efficient heating as the Designer Range. A wide range of sizes and styles to suit all applications.
