Are They Efficient?

A column radiator is a well-engineered classic radiator made to heat your space efficiently. This style of radiator was first designed in the mid-60s and it’s possibly more popular now than ever before.

Column radiators are efficient because they have high thermal conductivity and provide faster heat distribution than other radiators. Part of their efficiency comes from the large surface area and design, each gap in the sectional design of a column radiator lets it produce and conduct heat from all angles. Having a column radiator means that you won’t need the heating on for as long as normal due to it heating up quickly.

Can They Be Wall Mounted?
