Guide to use of heat emitters on low temp systems

Stelrad has launched the latest in a series of CPD programmes designed to help people to utilise radiators in a variety of scenarios and circumstances. This latest CPD has been fully accredited by CIBSE and RIBA.

A low temperature heating system operates at lower temperatures when compared to a traditional gas boiler driver heating system. Traditional gas systems operate at around 80°C whereas low temperature systems operate efficiently at between 45 and 50°C.

“This latest CPD addresses the issues related to radiators and low temperature renewable heating systems,” says Stelrad’s Chris Harvey. “We know that the key to selecting radiators that are right for the homes in which they are installed is to size them properly for each room and we still our Heat Loss Calculator and Radiator Sizing Software in the UK – available free from our website – both a simple to use basic version and a more complex version that can respond to more comprehensive calculation.

You simply input the size of the room, the size and number of windows and doors, the materials used in the building and the software will direct you to the right number of BTUs you need to adequately heat that room and suggest radiators from the range that will meet those needs. As with traditional boiler driven systems, it is very important to size renewable heating systems correctly.

“As well as saving money by having the right sized radiators to provide the levels of heat you need in a home, you will save money by buying the right sized radiators rather than spending more on larger radiators that you don’t actually need.”
