Radiators

Very safe: for children, pets, the elderly and all in the house. Radiators can be touched with the bare hand without any harm. As a further benefit of this safe temperature the adornments of the room such as curtains and furniture will not be affected should they come into contact with the radiator.

Fully Controllable: each individual radiator can be turned off or temperature changed independently of all the other radiators.

Quick responding: Radiators heat up to temperature within 10 minutes and will get the entire room up to temperature in under an hour – if sized correctly for the room.

Very Stylish: radiators are available in every style to suite your décor. The basic styles include ribbed, plane or decorative finish, White or Colored, Horizontal or vertical radiators and Towel rails.

Radiators can be fitted to a new dwelling and can be retrofitted to an existing structure.

The house can be separated into different heated areas ( view diagram ) for specific use such as sleeping, entertaining, working and living areas. At night, the living area can be turned off and set to heat up to the desired temperature again in the early morning. This is possible due to the rapid heat up response of a radiator system from cold to warm in less than 1 hour. In addition the radiators can therefore be turned off during the warm day as well, saving large energy costs. Furthermore, overheating and therefore paying for heat you don’t want is prevented at midday and into the afternoon when the outside temperature is at its highest.

Radiators are hygienic as there is no blown air so no dust or pathogens are spread around making it ideal for all areas in winter. Therefore radiators are perfect  for spaces used for child-minding, working, caring for the elderly, sick or fragile.

We recommend that radiators should be fitted in each room in the house including bedrooms, living areas, toilets, passages. This would ensure that the entire home is warmed evenly throughout. As indicated above you would also therefore be able to turn off areas that are not in use such as the entertainment area when you sleep at night or the living area when everyone is out at work.

It is important to reiterate here that radiators come In All Colors and Styles to suit your environment, budget and lifestyle.

Towel Rails both heat the room as well as dry your towels at the same time. Therefore they are perfect for en-suite and small bathrooms as well as kitchens. Towel rails that are connected to the central heating system also give off more heat that the typical electric one’s making them more efficient to dry your towels.

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is basically “hidden” away under the floor and would not form part of the aesthetic of the room and therefore gives only a functional addition to a room. The down side to this is this system first has to heat up the concrete slab underneath before sufficient heat is radiated into the room.

We South Africans are relatively familiar with the electric underfloor heating where electric cables are placed under carpets or tiles to heat up the floor. One of the draw backs of electric underfloor heating is a magnetic field is created by the cables when it is on. Of course this is not ideal for healthy home living conditions

With hydronic underfloor heating the same principle of radiant heat is used but with hot water pipes on the floor with insulation between the pipes and the slab in order to have the heat radiated in to the room better as opposed to the slab. This eliminates the electro-magnetic field as well.

Pipes being layed down on floor for underfloor heating

Underfloor heating is one of the most luxurious forms of central heating; however the response of under floor to change temperature is extremely slow. Therefore the heating system needs to be on all winter 24/7 so it cannot be turned off when it is not needed because it won’t be up to temperature when it is needed – in winter. This can result in high operational costs.

In South Africa underfloor heating can become uncomfortable at midday if the outside temperature becomes warm and then the inside tends to overheat, as the under floor heating is still running at full capacity. This makes underfloor heating very suitable for continuous cold days and nights e.g. Lesotho.

It should be noted that underfloor heating is not recommended for retro fits of existing structures as it will result in higher installation costs. One of the major contributions to the higher installation cost is because the existing floor must be removed and reinstalled.
