Your joking the average boiler kicks out over 80,000 btu's more than enough for the average 3 bed.

If anyone has the old style single panel radiators and finds their house is on the cold side - upgrading to these will make a big difference for not a lot of money.
Hot.....
Great price, screwfix equivalent £60 with free valves, toolstation £53.
I would buy my valves somewhere cheaper though.
HOT! Literally! Ordered 7. Thanks OP.

Looks like Wickes sell the equivalent valve and lockshield for £18.99 (228607) making total £48.98 vs £59.99 at Screwfix. Seems like a good deal

Yes it's a great deal, I would just go elsewhere for cheaper valves. You're going to save about £15-20 per complete rad and valves.
If I hadn't just replaced a good few I'd be down to wickes.

I agree you don't want to do anything stupid, but upgrading some ancient radiators in your average 3 bed house is extremely unlikely to be a problem - its much more likely that the original radiators were under-spec'ed because that was cheaper.
anyone know a good place that does vertical rads? looking about 10 double vertical rads but ideally in a sale somewhere.
are these convector rads the best or do the vertical, say column rads just as good/efficient?
They are turkish so you get what you pay for. I would recommend looking for german or polish ones if you're on the market for radiators.
Just picked up 7. They are heavy, well made radiators.

From a modern combi it might well do near that much, as it needs to for hot water performance but anything older connected to a storage cylinder in a 2 or 3 bed house most likely won't. My last boiler did 30,000 btu/hr. House builders are not usually noted for providing over-performing boilers if something small and cheap did the job!

Your last boiler clearly wasn't very well endowed. My boiler's getting on for 36 years old and pumps out 55000Btu/h. Replaced all the radiators around 4 months ago using Kudos with free valves from Screwfix.
Thanks
At first I thought these would be no good for me.

Came home measured and ive ordered 3, They are to replace older rads which are a less efficent design. Guess that will keep me busy tomorrow.

Cheers OP.
If you want a rad of higher quality then get Barlo from screwfix. Manufactured in UK (so it says) and well trusted brand of over 30 years.
A while ago I purchased a Revive 1600l x 750h K2 (Type 22) radiator from Mr Central Heating: mrcentralheating.co.uk/rev…-k2. Apparently they are tested to 13 bar and EN442 tested and certified with a 10 year warranty.

reviveradiators.co.uk/com…ors

Worth checking if your system has the correct pressure, or after getting any trapped air out of the rads as the pressure can drop..

Try to get the rads balanced as that can improve warmth- youtube vids show how to do this.

Anyone recommend any places to get a curved Type 22 radiator made for a bay window? So far I have seen places which supply the rad and bend it; or other places where you send them a radiator to bend to specs. Although most seem to only do single rads when they do everything. One place wants £30 per foot of the length for bending a K2/type 22 rad

Depends if it's a council boiler or not....

I've a prehistoric council gravity system and I knackered it up by changing 3 type 21's for 22's, lost all the heat in all but 2 rads, as it can't supply enough pressure

All 3 fitted and seem much better than the old ones taken out. Fresh inhibitor in too so worthwhile job. Cheers again op

I can confirm they are manufactured in the UK, and also supply the wicks universal radiator. Most efficient in the market. Always check the BTU to compare rads.
Btus is shockingly bad..
anyone which type of valves I need if the rads are going to be hung on the wall (pipes hidden in the wall and not visible coming through the floor boards)

hot deal as I need a couple of these rads.

Much more likely that changing old rads would be better for your boiler and system. Old rads tend to have sludge and magna knocking about - which can cock up heat exchangers etc.

Suspect that 95% of boilers will cope with a slightly bigger rad - i think your calcs on btu capability’s need looking at again... 3000 btu for a modern boiler..? 🤔
so which ones are better, the termo teknik or the wicks own brand? thanks
33215419-rNqHn.jpgI'm tempted to replace this. Live in a 2 bed house so I'm assuming this wouldn't mess with the boiler too much.
Should I get the one posted here?
Also are they fairly easy to fit?
Great Deal , purchased!

My house is nice and warm but was curious. My boiler puts out 100kBTU. I could heat my house 3x over with what rads it currently has.

Completely depends on your boiler, your tools, access, your experience, and the state of the current valves etc.

I'm a competent DIY'er but we have a combi boiler with a combined feed and expansion tank (rather than it being pressurised). Used a pipe freeze kit, as I needed to change the lockshield and TRV as well (older radiator was on a larger fitting TRV). So couldn't bung it.

One side went fairly quickly with a minimum of leakage, but on the other side, something was seized. The pipe freeze bung went after about 10 minutes, and thereafter followed the great flood of 2017, all through the 3rd bedroom floor and hallway ceiling.

If you currently have metric radiators, and your existing TRV/lockshield are in serviceable condition, then with a bit of patience you should be able to do it yourself. But you could be dealing with something that's not been touched in 20 years, and unfortunately working on pipes and fittings that haven't been disturbed in 20 years seems to invite problems. The rad in our 2nd bedroom came off so we could replaster - when it went back on I had a slight leak around the olive, and had to resort to wrapping it with copious amounts of PTFE until we get the boiler replaced in the summer.

Your experience will hopefully be more straight forward than mine!

never liked them freeze pipe things. I always drain the entire system first, at least one rad somewhere at the lowest point should have a drain-off spout. Get some inhibitor and cleaner to go into the system whilst it's drained down too saves doing it again later.
That's the correct way to do it, but then makes a £30 radiator a £50+ job, especially if you've already recently added inhibitor/drained down for something else. By all means it's still cheaper than calling in a firm, and I'd hate to dissuade anyone, but I've learned my lesson and will stick to only working on cold water which I can fully isolate

Really doesn't help that the rads in this house are probably 20+ years old but could have cried when the 2nd bedroom one started dripping from the olive (after 3rd bedroom radiator-gate) lol

If anyone is going to attempt something they're not familiar with, I'd thoroughly recommend the videos that PlumberParts stick up on YouTube.
