Advice on selecting bathroom radiators

If you are thinking of purchasing a bathroom radiator, you should consider the form, the function and the price. Do you prefer a traditional or a modern radiator? Read the following advice and decide upon the bathroom radiator that fits your needs.

Traditional vs modern

When searching for a bathroom radiator, you should definitely consider your bathroom space, the form and style of the radiator, it's material and it's price. Bathroom radiators can be divided into two main categories, namely the modern and the traditional radiators. You may select between a more traditional panel type of radiator or the modern ladder style radiators (towel radiators). Choosing between modern radiators and traditional bathroom radiators When you are searching for the perfect bathroom radiator, you will find that modern radiators come in a vast variety of materials, and are significantly larger than traditional bathroom radiators. The two most common materials used when crafting modern bathroom radiators are steel and chrome. On the other hand, traditional bathroom radiators are larger and significantly much more heavier than their modern counterparts as they are usually made from cast iron. You may find a modern bathroom radiator more convenient than a traditional model as they tend to heat up much more quickly than traditional ones. However, traditional bathroom radiators take longer to cool down, thus they retain heat much better than modern models.

Electric and mixed radiators

Electric bathroom radiator You may want to consider an electric bathroom radiator. They can be considered to be advantageous as they are easy to install (since there are no pipes, only an electric connection) and they work in an autonomous way; completely separated from your general house heating system. Mixed bathroom radiator There is always the option of a mixed bathroom radiator. They generally operate in two ways. During winter, you can connect them to your boiler system and during summer, they can operate with electricity. Mixed radiators have a fan through which you will be able to manage your bathroom’s temperature perfectly.

Prices

As soon as you have decided upon the type of radiator that fits your house’s needs, start comparing prices. Of course, it is more possible to find cheap radiators online by searching for the major manufacturers’ websites.
