Radiators work by heating the air which flows past them. Warm air rises from the radiators and colder air in the room falls. This circulation develops a flow of air around the room sending warm air from the radiator and delivering cool air back to be heated. Traditionally radiators were made of cast iron but the modern radiators are made of pressed steel, which heat up and cool down quickly, making them ideal for NZ’s changeable climate and busy lifestyles. Most modern radiators have fins on the back, or between its panels if it is a double. This has enabled smaller radiators to be used as the fins vastly increase the surface area available for giving off heat.

Each radiator is fitted with a terrier TRV (Thermostatic Radiator Valve) and a lockshield valve for balancing. A TRV works by sensing the surrounding air temperature. It progressively closes down the flow through the radiator as the air temperature rises, thereby cooling the radiator and regulating the room temperature.
The model of the radiator required is determined by the specific heating requirement of the area, which is normally measured in kilowatt output (KW).
