While buying or renovating a house or a commercial building, you need to consider the radiator heating systems. Appropriate central heating radiators can help maintain a warm and comfortable living and working environment. A heating radiator is different from an automobile radiator. An automobile radiator extracts heat from the engine parts, whereas a heating radiator keeps the environment warm by radiating heat.
Conventional heating radiators used to be oil- or wood-fired, hence polluting the atmosphere. Today, hydronic and electric heating radiators are commonly used. Hydronic heating radiators circulate hot water to the front panels that radiate the heat to their surroundings. Electric heating radiators use electrical heating elements to radiate heat to the surroundings.
Heating radiators are available in different configurations such as wall panels, baseboards, columnar panels, curved panels, ceiling units and wall-hung units. The choice for the configuration depends on space available and the type of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system opted. You can use an independent unit as well as a unit connected to a centrally operated system for your building or environment. Some of the important parameters you must consider before buying a heating radiator are:
- Method of heating: electric, hydronic or conventional, etc.
- Available space, height and length for mounting
- Temperature requirement from the heating radiator
