What are low temperature radiators?

What are they and how do they work? Designed for low water temperature operation – these new Low Temperature radiators are ideal for use with heat pump technology and can be used alongside underfloor heating in a split system.

How do low temperature radiators work?

LST radiators work by pulling in air from the bottom grilles. This intake of air then rises through the cover, where it warms up-thanks to the hot water passing through the system. The warm air is then emitted back into the room via the top and front-facing grilles.

What is the most efficient temperature for radiators?

As a rule of thumb most guidelines recommend heating your home to 70F (21C) and bedroom temperatures should be kept a little cooler to around 64F (18C). For most people this temperature will be comfortable, but if it feels a little hot (or alternatively cold) then the temperature can be adjusted from this baseline.

What temperature should radiators be in winter?

For combi boilers it is recommended to set the output temperature for the radiators at 75 degrees and the water temperature at 60 degrees.

What is a K3 radiator?

The Stelrad Compact K3 radiators are the more powerful models of radiators that are available domestically. Offering massive heating outputs, these treble panel and treble convector radiators are suitable for specialist situations where something more than a standard K2 radiator is required.

Do heat pumps work with radiators?

Yes. Heat pumps can be used to heat buildings either with underfloor systems, with radiators or a mix of both. While underfloor systems are often used on lower floors, it might be that your preferred choice for heating upstairs is radiators.

What are the best settings for central heating?

Turning the thermostat up therefore won’t warm the home up faster, it will only keep the heating on longer to reach a higher overall level. According to the UK government, guideline temperatures suggest 21c for your main living area and 19c for anywhere else.

What temperature should I set my boiler for radiators?

75 degrees
To maximise efficiency, we recommend setting your radiator dial to 75 degrees and your hot water to 60 degrees. Once you’ve got your boiler running at the optimal temperature, you’ll want to set the timer for when you need heating the most.

What is the difference between a K1 and K2 radiator?

K1 also known as Type 11, is a type of radiator with 1 radiator panel and 1 set of convection fins. K2 also known as Type 22, is a type of radiator with 2 radiator panels and 2 sets of convection fins.

Are triple panel radiators worth it?

For the greatest heat output consider a triple radiator which uses a combination of three panels and three convectors. Great for larger spaces, they’re also ideal if you are extending a room and don’t want to install additional radiators.

Why are Jaga radiators good for low water temp?

Here are just seven of many key reasons why contractors are choosing Jaga Radiators for their projects. Jaga radiators are zero clearance radiators, and are designed for use with low water temperatures, allowing for a safe surface temperature always lower than 42°C.

Are there any LST radiators in the UK?

We offer the UK’s widest selection of sizes and options of low surface temperature (LST) radiators. The outer casing of Jaga LST radiators remain cool to touch, even at high flow temperatures.

Which is radiators are suitable for low temperature heating?

For example, you can opt for radiators (all Vasco radiators can be connected to a low temperature system) or for convectors, such as the Niva ventilo-convector with which you can heat and cool. Finally, wall, floor or ceiling heating are also suitable for LTH.

Which is the highest rated Jaga heat exchanger?

After the Belgian WTCB (Belgian building research institute) and the British BRE, the Dutch KIWA institute also awarded the highest score for Jaga’s Low-H 2 O heat exchanger. Jaga’s Low-H 2 O radiator has been thoroughly tested over the years by a variety of independent bodies in various countries.
