One of the key components of most heating systems in the UK are the radiators that share the heat around the home.
The development of lower temperature heating systems, utilising renewable heating appliances – such as ground source and air source heat pumps - has created another challenge for the sector, but it’s one Stelrad has risen to and are able to respond to effectively. It’s key to remember is that radiators are compatible with all heating systems – traditional and renewable- when sized correctly and supported by superior levels of insulation in a home.
As well as developing aesthetically pleasing radiators that far from simply being heating appliances, have become design features in a home, Stelrad has developed models and series that meet specific requirements. But its in the area of renewable heating systems – low-temperature heating generated by environmentally friendly heating options like heat pumps that arguably, Stelrad has achieved most. It has developed and enlarged its series of K3 radiators – three panels and three fins on a radiator footprint that is scarcely larger than a traditional K2 design - but which offers an additional 50% metal surface area over a K2 to share more heat from a similar area. This range has recently seen three more of its most popular designs released in K3 format to offer additional options for heating system designers and installers. It has added larger radiators to most of its ranges to allow the radiators everyone has grown used to, to be relevant to lower temperature systems and to operate comfortably with air source heat pumps in particular, which will have a major role to play as the heating system horizon changes to accept these renewable options over the next five or six years.
Stelrad has developed a wider range of vertical radiators too, adding a huge number of new designs and sizes to the range helping to provide the larger radiators needed by the renewable heating options.
Much thought has gone into the latest radiator developments and it’s all to ensure that the radiators available from Stelrad are ‘fit for the future’ – able to continue providing the levels of heat required in homes in the UK to keep everyone comfortable.
