What are aluminium radiators?

Aluminium radiators, such as the Afinia range from Grant UK, are made from aluminium rather than steel or iron. They have a low water content which combined with the excellent thermal conductivity of aluminium, makes this type of radiator highly responsive to changes in the temperature demand.

More efficient radiator

Aluminium radiators are more efficient than traditional radiator materials such as cast iron or steel. Aluminium is a great conductor of heat which allows the radiators to heat up and cool down very quickly and with their low energy consumption, aluminium radiators can deliver cost savings to households on their energy bills.

Advantages of aluminium radiators

In addition to their stylish design and being very effective conductors of heat, aluminium radiators are simple to install, light in weight, and suitable for installation with both low and high temperature systems which means they can be installed with air source heat pumps and oil or gas boilers. They can also heat up a room in a short amount of time and can cool down quickly as well so installing aluminium radiators has many advantages

How do aluminium radiators work?

Aluminium radiators work in same way as steel radiators. The water within the heating system is heated by a heat generator (such as a boiler or heat pump) and the heated water is then circulated through the system pipework and radiators within the property. As the hot water flows through the radiator, the heat is transferred into the radiator body where the heat is then emitted into the room in which the radiator is located warming the surrounding area to the required temperature. Cooler water then flows away from the radiator and is recirculated through the central heating system and heat generator to be heated up again to repeat this process.

How do aluminium radiators differ from steel radiators?

Aluminium radiators differ to steel radiators because they tend to have a lower water content which helps aluminium radiators heat up faster than traditional steel radiators. Aluminium radiators also have a greater thermal conductivity, up to 5 times when compared to that of steel and other traditional radiator materials.

Which radiator is better - aluminium, or copper, or brass, or steel?

Modern radiators, whether they be made from steel, copper or aluminium, tend to be more efficient than their older counterparts. In addition to being efficient, radiators today also need to fulfil the aesthetical preferences for a home. Aluminium radiators, such as the Afinia range from Grant UK, are sleek and stylish in design while also being incredibly efficient so they can fulfil the requirements for many homes.

Are aluminium radiators right for my home?

Yes – aluminium radiators are a great addition to any home. If you are thinking of upgrading your radiators to aluminium radiators, make sure you speak to your installer to ensure that the correct size of radiators are specified and installed. It is also important that your installer assesses the existing pipework to make sure the new radiators are compatible.
