Dual Fuel Designer Radiators
17 May 2021
If you have a room in your home that tends to get cold during the summer months when your central heating system is switched off, a dual fuel designer radiator could be the answer.
What is a dual fuel designer radiator?
A dual fuel radiator is connected to both your central heating system and your electrics with the addition of an electrical heating element and a T-piece. This means that your radiator can be heated either by the central heating system, or electrically via the heating element - which means it can be turned on independently.
What are the benefits of a dual fuel radiator?
Installing a dual fuel radiator means that if you have a room in your home that gets colder than the rest of the house, you can make the radiator in this room dual fuel, so you can heat the one room without heating the whole house. This is a great solution if you have a room in your home that tends to get cold during the summer months when your central heating system is switched off. Another typical application is in a bathroom, where you need towels to dry or if you feel the cold when you step out of the bath or shower. With the erratic temperatures of the British summer, the ability to heat a single room without having to switch the whole central heating system on, or alter every radiator’s TRV to minimum is a great ‘simple’ cost effective option.
Can any Radiator be dual fuel?
If you want to have a duel fuel radiator, then you need to ensure the heating element fits safely inside the style you need. The heating elements are long and thin, and the longer the element, the higher the wattage and the greater the capacity for heating. Which is why tall designer towel radiators are perfect for dual fuel conversions.
