Choosing the Best Radiators for Maximising Wall Space

3 September 2018

With many new-builds being built to smaller dimensions to counteract increased house prices, home-owners are having to maximise floor and wall space with everything from furniture to personal belongings, and that’s before they consider installing radiators in the property.

With winter around the corner, a good set of radiators is essential. Here are some tips to help you choose a radiator that maximises your wall space.

Calculate your BTU

BTU, or British Thermal Units, are a way to measure the heat energy required to warm up a room. When dealing with confined spaces, an accurate BTU is essential as you might otherwise be overspending on larger models that pump out more heat than you need.

You can find a free BTU calculator at the Heating Boutique website.

Vertical radiators

Vertical radiators are a great way to save space. Not only modern and stylish, they can be fitted almost anywhere. Despite their vertical mounting, they generate the same amount of heat as any horizontal radiator, warming your room in no time.

Maybe vertical radiators aren’t for you, and that’s okay. You can still make the most of your wall space with a horizontal design. Many compact models offer the same level of heat output as their larger counterparts, whilst taking up a fraction of the space.

Multifunctional radiators

With smaller rooms like the bathroom, you can make the most of your wall space by investing in heated towel rails. Mounted vertically, they already save space like any vertical radiator, but they are also multi-tasking devices. Hang your towels up to dry, warm them through for after your shower, and successfully heat the modest dimensions of your bathroom, all at the same time.
