Dual Fuel Radiators

A dual fuel towel rail offers a versatile heating solution that combines the benefits of central heating and electric heating systems. These are designed to be connected to both the central heating system and an electric power supply.

One of the key advantages of a dual fuel heated towel rail is the ability to operate independently of the central heating system, meaning that users can still use the towel rail radiator to heat the towels even when the central heating is turned off. This can be particularly useful during the warmer months.

This feature is popular because of the energy efficiency it offers, allowing easy and convenient regulation of temperature and efficient heating. Explore more about the collection:HOW TO CHECK AND MAINTAIN RADIATORS: A DETAILED GUIDE

Types of Radiators

The various types of radiators offered at Tapron include flat panel, straight heated towel rail, modern and traditional designs.

Flat Panel: A flat panel towel radiator is characterised by its slim, flat design, which makes it ideal for rooms where space is limited. These are often installed against walls, saving valuable floor space and are known for their efficient heat distribution and quick heating capabilities. The number of bars ranges from product to product, where the bigger the dimensions, the higher the heat output.

Modern: Straight heated towel rails feature a series of connected round bars and are larger than flat panel radiators, making them more suitable for larger spaces where heating needs are higher.

Traditional: The traditional freestanding towel rail range is a classic and timeless heating solution. Unlike the bars and flat panel heated towel rails that provide space to hang towels dry while giving off heat, the dual fuel traditional towel rail comes with overhanging rails. These traditional radiators with towel rails are part of both the central and electrical heating systems.

Electrical Heating Elements

The electric element refers to a component that heats the radiator using electricity and is installed inside the radiator, connected to a power source. When the electric element is activated, it heats up, transferring heat to the radiator and, consequently, to the room. This feature provides a convenient way to heat a room independently of the central heating system, allowing for more precise control over temperature and potentially reducing energy costs.

The 600W and 400W electric element is connected to the electrical supply and is responsible for heating the rail to a desired temperature, allowing towels to dry and warm up. The user-friendly operation is controlled by an on/off switch, timer, or thermostat. Another selection also offers the 200W range, which has a digital display and 3 different settings to choose from, including energy-saving mode, timing mode and free mode. The availability of various colours further enables homeowners to coordinate the various pieces for harmony in the interior and palette.

Functions of Radiator Valves

Understanding types of radiator valves can be crucial in determining the functionality of the radiators. These designs are available in straight, corner and angular structures to ensure the fittings work with top-notch quality without compromising quality or appeal. The dual fuel radiator valve selection provides solutions for both central and electric.

Radiator valves play a crucial role in controlling the flow of hot water into a radiator, allowing users to regulate the temperature and improve overall heating efficiency. These valves are located at the inlet and outlet pipes of the radiator and come in different types, each serving a specific function.

Heating Element and BTU: Understanding Efficiency and Heat Output 

BTU, or British Thermal Unit, is a standard unit of measurement used to quantify heat energy and is an important factor to consider before you purchase a chrome towel rail radiator or any other design. Depending on the area, the BTU can help determine the effectiveness of your purchase where the higher it is, the more heat it generates. Factors such as the desired temperature, insulation and room size are taken into account when determining the BTU rating. Smaller bathrooms demand a BTU of around 500-1000, medium spaces with 1000-2500 and larger spaces require around 2500-4000 BTU. Our best-selling brushed brass towel rail operates with a 1357 BTU, making it ideal for residential bathrooms, standing out with its 21-bar structure.  

The heating element goes hand-in-hand with the BTU where it either features a water-based system or an electric heating element. While the BTU controls the heat, it is this factor that generates warmth within the radiator. The difference lies in how the water-based function uses hot water or steam to keep the bathroom radiator functioning while the electric design is connected to an electric power source and can be connected via a standard wall outlet. The compatibility of these two factors is essential in ensuring the right temperature is maintained without unwanted glitches.

Efficient Heating Anytime with Dual Fuel Radiators

As hot water or steam flows through the black towel radiators, heat is emitted, raising the temperature of the room. With advanced technology, these additions are designed with compatibility to both central and electric heating, providing two modes that can be switched as per requirements and preference. This is known as the dual fuel property which is devised to provide year-round comfort, deviating significantly away from traditional designs.

Tapron’s dual fuel towel radiators are family-friendly that tend to your needs regardless of the weather outside! By combining both the electric and water-based options, these towel rails can be connected to central heating or electric sources as per demands. During colder months, it can be connected to the central heating system which utilises hot water from the boiler to generate warmth. When this central heating system is turned off, users can switch to the electric mode, allowing it to operate independently and provide heat as needed.

Exploring Heating Solutions with Regular and Flat Panel Radiators 

Tapron’s collection, including the gold bathroom radiator assortment, is divided into two specific types – the regular bar design and the flat panel structure.

Both styles are offered with dual fuel properties with ranging heating elements and BTU to choose from as per requirements.

It can be noted that the taller designs provide a greater heat output and suit better if you have a high heat demand in your space. Users can also consider the width where these fittings can range from narrow models of 300mm to wider units exceeding 2000mm. Radiators typically have a depth of 50mm to 100mm, although some models may be deeper to accommodate additional features such as integral valves or towel rails.
