What is a TRV?
Standing for thermostatic radiator valves, a TRV is used to control the air temperature of a room by automatically adjusting the amount of hot water that enters the radiator they are attached to. Whether you want to create a different temperature in different rooms dependant on personal preferences or you just want to introduce a more cost-effective heating system, the addition of TRV’s to radiators gives you full control.
How does a radiator TRV work?
The mechanism consists of a valve head which will either expand or contract as the temperature in a room changes, shifting a pin which sits in the valve body. In order to meet the desired temperature which you have pre-set, the valve will open or close to allow the hot water to enter the radiator and heat the room or to prevent the hot water from accessing the system. The main benefit of a TRV is their responsiveness, continually adapting to any temperature fluctuations so you can enjoy a consistent warmth in your home.
Are TRV radiators energy efficient?
By introducing heating controls into your home, the system will automatically kick in as and when needed, knocking off once your preferred temperature is met. Those who introduce a TRV have noticed significant savings on their energy bill, with the cost of heating drastically reducing for a more cost-effective solution that not only saves money, but keeps your home a comfortable temperature.
