How Does a Heating Radiator Works?

Heating radiators attached to your central heating system have a flow of hot water running through them. The hot water heats the metal of the radiator, which heats the air that is in contact with the metal. As the air is heated it becomes less dense and rises. The warm air rises and creates convection currents.

Heating radiators have two valves; wheel-head valve and a flow control valve. The wheel-head valve is used to turn the radiator on and off and can be replaced with a thermostatic radiator valve (TRV). TRVs open and close automatically as the air temperature in the room reaches the pre-set temperature on the valve.

Which Valves To Use To Heat Up A Radiator

If you use a wheel-head valve to frequently turn a radiator on and off then it will fail and need replacing within a few years. Thermostatic radiator valves cost more but remove the need to keep turning radiators on and off.

The flow-control valve is rarely used by most householders, but it can be very useful. If you have a room that needs more heat then you can open the valve 100 with a pair of pliers. Similarly if a room is too hot you can gradually close the flow control valve 100 at a time until you are happy with the temperature.
