Did your bathroom radiator finally decide to give up the ghost after years of loyal service? Or are you simply starting to notice that your radiators are worn out or giving off insufficient or unevenly distributed heat? In that case it is high time to replace your radiators with new units that are more efficient, more economical and obviously a lot more attractive to the beholder.

Why replace a radiator?

The decision to replace a radiator comes when it is worn out, damaged or just plain broken. Yet, home renovations, conversions or home refurbishments are a great opportunity to replace your old heating units with new radiators that will prove a much better fit with your new interior. These days, we not only expect radiators to give off heat, we also want them to deliver added value to our home interior. This is why designer radiators are a great choice as the finishing touch as part of renovation or refurbishment projects.

A lot of people will also go for new radiators when their heat requirements change. If you are starting to notice that this one radiator does not really deliver the amount of heat you need, you are better off with a radiator that offers a higher heat output to take the place of your time-worn unit. Find out how to work out the heat output of a radiator.

Choosing the perfect radiator

This only leaves you with the question which radiators to have fitted. There are quite a few options:

  • Column radiator: retro look, ideal for large rooms and rooms with high ceilings.

  • Plinth radiator: fitted close to the floor, unobtrusive, excellent choice to be fitted underneath large windows.

  • Vertical towel radiator: perfect in the bathroom.

  • Designer radiator: ideal for the living room and other quality living space where you spend a lot of your time.

  • Panel radiator: classic heating element, a blend of simplicity and efficiency

Be sure to bear in mind the connectors. Go for radiators that have their connectors in the same position as your old units to avoid having to strip floors or break out wall sections. Whatever you do, turn to a professional for advice to have your new heating units fitted. Seamless installation is key to ensure you will be enjoying your heating for many years to come!
