Convector Radiators

Convector radiators are often seen as ordinary, but when you shop at Designer Radiators Direct, they are anything but. Our range of convector radiators like horizontal radiators and vertical convector radiators give you the chance to subtly bring more warmth into your space, whilst keeping your home heating stylish and in tune with the rest of the room.

How Does a Convector Radiator Work?

Whilst a normal radiator heats water up from the top of the radiator down, the convector radiator circulates the water through a tube around the radiator itself. The tube is surrounded by small fins, or teeth on the outside or within the panels of the radiator. These fins are heated up by the radiator and utilise their extra contact surface to bring more heat into the room in which they are heating.

If you’re not satisfied with your room's BTU output or have issues keeping your space warm, why not invest in double convector fin radiators. They give you extra bang for your buck so you can ensure that you are keeping tabs on the heating efficiency of your space.

Convector Radiators, Low Prices And Free UK Delivery On Selected Items.

For those extra draughty rooms, a convector radiator can work wonders. We have single radiators, double radiators and triple convector radiators to heat your space perfectly whilst also keeping the aesthetic of your room in balance. Whatever your radiator needs, a convector radiator is the perfect unity of style and efficiency, maintaining strong BTU outputs and looking fab in the process!

It's recommended to know the BTU required to heat your space before purchasing a radiator, so we have made a free and easy to use BTU calculator so you can work this out quickly.

Convector Radiators Popular Questions

What Are The Benefits Of Convector Radiators?

The simple benefits of convector radiators is that they can be cost effective in the short and long term, from being highly affordable to purchase and affordable to run. They are also made with impressive designs so instead of relying on just your boiler to warm up they can use the air, making them heat up quicker and evenly warm the space it is placed, this means you don’t have to leave your boiler on or as long so saving on your gas bills! They are also highly durable so you won't need to worry about replacing them anytime soon.

Do Convector Radiators Take up a Lot of Space?

Just like any other radiator, convector radiators come in a huge range of styles and sizes. Meaning that some might take up more room than others. Convector radiators also come in different “thicknesses”, so single convector radiators are thinner than double convectors and so on. If you're looking for a smaller radiator to heat up a small space then single convectors are for you. The “thicker” the radiator the more heat it produces. But they can also come in small radiator sizes so you can even use double and triple radiators in larger spaces. We do recommend that you check the BTU output you’ll need to heat your space so you can pick a radiator perfect for your room.

Do Double And Triple Convector Radiators Cost More To Run?

Double convector radiators cost a little more than single convectors to run and triple convector radiators cost a little more than double convectors. This is due to the different sizes and thicknesses that the radiator comes in and because it produces more heat. But overall convector radiators can cost lower to run than other radiators as they heat up quicker and can emit heat quicker, meaning you can turn your boiler off sooner.

What’s The Difference Between A Convector Radiator & A Regular Radiator?

Convection Radiators are built slightly differently from regular radiators with changes in internal and external components. Convection radiators work with a scientific design as it cycles through the cold and warm air, creating warm air that rises and once it's cooled down and lowered it's again recycled through the radiator and heated back up. This gives your space a continuous flow of warmth. To learn more about convector vs radiators visit our blog.
