Why You Should Choose an Aluminium Radiator

Updated: Jun 17


A white aluminium radiator

Radiators can be crafted from a number of materials such as steel, cast iron, and aluminium, with each choice presenting different benefits. In recent times, aluminium, now one of the most prevalent materials globally, has emerged as the premier option for heating systems due to its numerous advantages compared to the alternatives.


Perfect with Renewable energy sources

Within both domestic and commercial environments increased interest and legislation in the use of renewable energy sources has led to a greater use of lower water temperatures in heating systems. Using conventional steel radiators to deliver adequate output for each room can prove difficult, with larger radiators needed to achieve output.


One solution is to use aluminium radiators, their inherent benefits, include excellent thermal properties, low water content and being lightweight, these are great for any system but especially in relation to the lower delta Ts delivered with renewable energy.


Energy Saving

Aluminium has excellent thermal efficiencies, heating up and cooling quickly, which allows immediate control of the temperature in each room, perfect when using thermostatic valves.


Low Water Content

Their thermal efficiency means aluminium radiators can operate with comparatively lower water content making them perfect for systems that produce a lower water temperature, e.g., heat pumps, or condensing boilers using methane, gasoil or wood pellets.


Easy Installation

Their lightweight nature makes them easy to handle and suitable for a one-man installation.


Colours and Special Finishes.

Aluminium radiators have traditionally only been available in white, the Vincenzo and Luciano radiators, however, are available from stock in White, as well as over 50 other colours & special finishes.


Aluminium radiators are already developing beyond the traditional sectional format with a range of designer models.


Aluminium is incredibly versatile with hundreds of possible size options available, inherent thermal properties mean lower water content, efficient transfer of heat and efficient temperature control, a great choice for today’s heating requirements.

BTU

British Thermal Units (BTU) is a measure of the output of heat needed to raise the temperature of a room. Determining the correct BTU will help you get the right radiator for your home.
