A designer column radiator from quality steel is the answer
These days there is still a sizeable percentage of older homes in the UK where traditional cast iron column radiators are installed. When it becomes necessary to replace these, we have to decide what kind of new radiator would be the best choice.
It is true that a cast iron radiator keeps the heat longer than others. However, a modern steel column radiator (in the same size) can provide higher output than a cast iron one.
Of course, if we insist on the appearance of our old radiator, we can easily buy very similar ones made of steel, such as the Essy , the Miss and the Alaska designer column radiators.
The abovementioned models, especially their three and four column versions, nearly look like conventional cast iron radiators. Thanks to their wide range of sizes we can find easily a good horizontal radiator with the appropriate size and output, which can be installed in the place of our existing cast iron radiator.
These quality models are highly suitable for period homes, but these coloured radiators also suit any modern home interior well. The Essy and the Alaska can be ordered in 208 colours and the Miss in 40 colours without extra charge.
In addition, these design radiators can be bought at an affordable price compared to traditional cast iron radiators.
