Are cast iron radiators the best?
Cast iron radiators are energy efficient radiators and a good energy saving radiator choice. Studies have also shown that the conductivity of cast iron is higher than that of steel, so the heat transfer from the cast iron radiator surface into the room is much better than steel.
Can you buy new cast iron radiators?
For the ultimate replacement radiator for vintage homes, look no further than Classic Radiators from U.S. Boiler Company. These beautiful cast iron radiators offer the same type of ornate surface detail commonly found on radiators of a bygone era, making them an ideal choice for restoration/renovation projects.
Should I replace my cast iron radiators?
Due to wear or a sudden breakdown, it may be necessary to replace the radiators. This often occurs when multiple valves break and therefore their repair would be uneconomical.
Are old cast iron radiators efficient?
Cast iron radiators are an energy efficient radiator. Studies have shown that the conductivity of cast iron is higher than that of steel and therefore the heat transfer from the cast iron radiator into the room is much more efficient than steel.
Are modern cast iron radiators efficient?
Cast iron radiators are an energy efficient radiator. Studies have shown that the conductivity of cast iron is higher than that of steel and therefore the heat transfer from the cast iron radiator into the room is much more efficient than steel. Our electric cast iron radiators also provide energy efficient heating.
What is the most efficient type of radiator?
This is because almost all of the electricity used to power them is converted into heat. As a result, in many ways electric radiators can be considered the ‘most efficient radiators’. An electric radiator system in your home can also bring other efficiencies when compared with traditional systems.
Which radiators give out the best heat?
Aluminium radiators provide the highest potential BTU output possible. That doesn’t mean that every aluminium radiator has a higher heat output than every steel radiator, for example. But aluminium radiators have the greatest heat output potential of any type.
How do I size a cast iron radiator?
Multiply the square feet of the one section by the number of sections. Equals the cast iron radiator’s total square foot of radiation. Please note that a house heated with all cast iron radiators, the supply temperature generally does not exceed 140F or 90Btu’s per square foot output for the cast iron radiator.
Where can I get a cast iron radiator in NYC?
Within the New York metro area we use a two-man delivery service that allows us to bring heavy cast iron radiators into your home and place them into position. Outside of NYC, we use pallet networks: radiators arrive on a pallet and are left outside the delivery address but are not brought into the house.
What kind of radiators are made of cast iron?
