Designer Radiators UK - FAQs
Are Designer Radiators Any Good?
The short answer to “are designer radiators any good?” – Yes!
Designer luxury radiators are of the highest quality, the most exceptional in design and simply radiate with beauty. Some people are accustomed to their traditional, nice radiators as it’s all they’ve ever known – and we totally get that! We believe that designer fashion radiators are excellent in their performance value, as well as looking so much better than traditional models.
When choosing decorative radiators, funky radiators, or any contemporary radiators in the UK, you should really appreciate it as a piece of furniture, rather than simply an item of function and practicality. Unique radiators shouldn’t be boring after all. The question of whether designer radiators are good will come down to personal preference. By choosing Stelrad designer radiators, you can be assured of quality and heat performance no matter the design, colour, or style.
Do Designer Funky Radiators Give Good Heat?
Designer radiators do give good heat, although there are a few factors worth considering when choosing your beautiful radiators in the UK. For example, vertical designer radiators won’t give out the same heat as horizontal designer radiators, due to their physical attributes. Vertical and horizontal designer radiators do not have the same length to draw cold air up for convection.
Another factor worthy of consideration is the colour of your chosen designer radiator. The beauty of choosing from decorative, luxury radiators is that freedom of choice is gifted to you for any colour or shape. Although this is so, there is an interactive relationship between colour and heat dispersion worth considering. Usually, chrome or black radiators do not emit heat as well as a white radiator, for instance. To counteract this, you can always choose a horizontal designer radiator, or even purchase multiple tall and slim vertical designer radiators. Use our heat loss calculator to find out which designer radiator is best suited to your needs.
Are Designer Radiators Efficient?
Our designer radiators here in the UK are extremely efficient! Perhaps more so than you might think. Our UK designer radiators are made of highly conductive steel compounds. This not only delivers efficient heating to your home but can even drive down your energy bills. Stelrad’s designer fashion radiators direct heat through their superconductive bodies, heating up in an instant, enabling them to use less water than other styles of radiator.
How to Fit Designer Radiators?
You don’t need to be a plumber to figure out how to fit a designer radiator, and it doesn’t have to be a daunting task. How to fit your designer radiator depends on whether you have bought a vertical designer radiator or a horizontal designer radiator, but the process is not too dissimilar either way.
Once you have drained your central heating system and turned your heating off (for obvious reasons) you will be good to go. Follow these steps on how to fit your designer radiator in the UK:
- Mark the centre line of your designer radiator to indicate the centre point of where it will sit on the wall.
- Mark the bottom line of your designer radiator to indicate how high you would like the bottom of the radiator to be from the floor.
- Check the distance between the bracket and the back of your designer radiator.
- Mark the measurement on the wall.
- Make your final measurement – the distance between the top bracket and the bottom bracket.
- Drill your designer radiator to the wall.
- Turn on the central heating and enjoy!
