The 10 Best Heating Radiators Now!

Best Heating Radiators: A Comprehensive Guide

Heating radiators are an essential part of any home heating system. They work by heating water in a central boiler, which is then pumped through pipes to the radiators. The radiators then heat the air in the room, providing warmth and comfort.

There are many different types of heating radiators available, each with its own unique benefits. In this article, we will take a comprehensive look at the best heating radiators on the market, so that you can choose the right ones for your home.

Types of Heating Radiators

The three main types of heating radiators are column radiators, panel radiators, and designer radiators.

Column radiators are the traditional type of radiator. They are made up of a series of vertical columns, which heat up quickly and provide a lot of heat output. Column radiators are also very durable and can last for many years.

Panel radiators are a more modern type of radiator. They are made up of a single flat panel, which is usually thinner and more lightweight than a column radiator. Panel radiators are also very efficient and can heat up a room quickly.

Designer radiators are available in a wide range of styles and finishes, so you can find one that perfectly matches your décor. Designer radiators are also very efficient and can heat up a room quickly.

Choosing the Right Heating Radiator

When choosing heating radiators for your home, there are a few factors to consider:

  • The size of your room: The size of the radiator will depend on the size of the room you want to heat. Make sure to choose a radiator that is large enough to heat the room evenly.
  • The type of heating system you have: If you have a central heating system, you will need to choose radiators that are compatible with your system. If you have an electric heating system, you will need to choose electric radiators.
  • Your budget: Heating radiators can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. Set a budget before you start shopping so that you don’t overspend.

Installing Heating Radiators

Installing heating radiators can be a complex task, so it is important to hire a qualified plumber to do the job. The plumber will be able to calculate the correct size of radiators for your home and install them correctly.

Maintaining Heating Radiators

To maintain your heating radiators, you should flush them out once a year to remove any sediment that has built up. You should also check the valves and bleed them regularly to remove any air that has built up.

Heating radiators are an essential part of any home heating system. By choosing the right type of radiators and installing them correctly, you can ensure that your home is warm and comfortable all winter long.

We’ve all seen the tired looking standard designs which fill up nearly every home in the country. They’re hardly noticeable, but about as interesting as being on hold to your energy provider.

Enhance Your Home’s Warmth and Style with Top-Quality Radiators

When it comes to choosing radiators for your home, it’s important to find top-rated heating radiators that offer both energy-efficient heating and modern designs. Reliable heating radiators can ensure your home stays warm and stylish, making it a comfortable place to relax and unwind.

The Benefits of Energy-Efficient Heating Radiators

Energy-efficient heating radiators are becoming increasingly popular for homeowners looking to save money on heating bills while also reducing their carbon footprint. By choosing the most energy-efficient radiators, you can heat your home while using less energy, resulting in lower bills and less environmental impact.

The modern best heating radiators are designed to be energy-efficient, using innovative technologies such as heat-exchangers and efficient fans to distribute heat evenly throughout your home. These radiators can also be connected to smart home devices, allowing you to control the temperature of your home remotely and adjust the heating according to your schedule.


It dazzles, glimmers and shines in the sun, and moonlight dances across its shimmering surface by night. Chrome is the icing on the cake for any shape it takes; furnishings to complete a luxury bathroom, bright shining alloys to complement a sports car, the plating on a roaring low-rider motorcycle, and chrome radiators to brighten and enhance your home.

However, not all chrome is made equal and so it certainly pays to pay close attention when thinking about what type of radiator you are going to buy, and which brand that radiator comes from. Having to replace a dodgy Chrome radiator 2-3 years after purchasing it is going to cost you a lot more than paying a little bit more now for a quality radiator with a genuine guarantee.


Chrome’s magical sheen is only topped by its versatility in application, making it perfect for completely unique shapes, especially dramatic designer radiators. Truly chrome is the choice for dreamers, but sadly it’s also the choice for schemers…

The consequence of cheap Chrome might not be seen for a year or two after you’ve purchased it, but they can begin to deteriorate within 12 months depending on the environment they are in. In bathrooms where the air is humid every day, poor quality Chrome simply cannot stand up to the moisture, it starts to peel at the corners and welding points, rust sets in and it only gets worse from there.


The three most telling signs that a Chrome radiator might not be what is promised are the price, guarantee (the supposed quality) and heat output. Let’s delve into this further;


Chrome radiators cost a good deal of money to manufacture. If the radiator you are looking at is exceedingly cheap, especially for larger sizes, then this is a tell-tale sign that it is too good to be true. The aphorism goes; ‘you get what you pay for’, and this certainly applies to Chrome designer radiators


The absolute best quality manufacturers in our industry, for example the likes of Zehnder who have been manufacturing radiators since the early 1900s, even they only offer a 5 year guarantee of Chrome.

If you are seeing a 15 year manufacturer’s warranty being offered for a big Chrome radiator at £195, then chances are that within a few years the ‘manufacturer’ won’t exist anymore – no manufacturer, no warranty, no obligation for the company you bought it from to help


If we compare a steel radiator finished in Chrome versus one which has been painted, the Chrome version would provide between 20-30% LESS heat output. This is a big one, the radiator industry is plagued by misinformation regarding heat output from less reputable manufacturers – Naturally if they say that their radiators produce more heat and they cost less, then that’s a guaranteed buy, right? Wrong.

This is a bit trickier to spot as a customer, but if you are looking at a Chrome designer radiator and it’s heat output is drastically higher than a similar alternative (by more than say 10-15%), then take your medicine and consider the thought that the information for that radiator might just be smoke and mirrors

Today we’re looking at a delight for the bathroom from a luxury manufacturer; the Vogue Stendy. It’s the age old bout of Form vs Function, so read on today to find out more;


You might be reading this, nodding your head and thinking, quite rationally, that you would always choose something which works over something which looks the part.

Well, a lot of time we let ourselves fall prey to good marketing communication so it’s not quite that simple. We like shiny and fast and extravagant and irrational, it’s why we have cars which drive 3 times the national speed limit and trainers worth a fraction of what we pay for them.

Trying to even the playing field, the Vogue Stendy’s inoffensive shape might seem all about function, but its folding shape is so distinctly unique that the Stendy is most definitely trendy. Let’s dig deeper.


When you really boil down what your bathroom is about, what else is there but comfort and ease of use;

Comfort – You want your bathroom to be a cosy space, somewhere you can relax. The exact details differ from person to person, but the crux of a good bathroom is the ability to close your eyes and relax yourself in preparation for the day ahead (or the thermal journey before bed).

Ease of Use – The more steps you need to take each time you use your bathroom, the more of a chore it is, and one thing that really should be hard labour is having to stressfully jam your towel into your radiator’s tiny slots.

In the bathroom we should be striving for fewer steps with a more efficient design and ultimately a room you can easily unwind or prepare for your day in. The Vogue Stendy is a perfect way to make warming, storing and hanging your towels a pleasure each time.

With no word of exaggeration, it feels almost as if your butler is handing the towel to you (why your butler is in the bathroom with you we don’t know…).

While seeming like a pretty normal rail at first glance, the Stendy is able to fold out each of its sections individually to create multiple shelves as and when you need them. You can have the top half warm the towel you are about to use, while above or beneath that you can fold and store your others, making this a neat solution, removing the need for damp towels hanging on pegs or overlapping each other on a small rail.


We often have customers in the showroom who know they are redecorating a room, and they’ve got work going on, a wall has been taken down to make the bathroom twice as large, but they’re still unsure of how exactly they are going to decorate their new bathroom, and how it is going to be laid out.

Designer radiators like the Vogue Stendy are things of beauty able to capture our imagination, and customers can easily position exactly where they want their new radiator, how they’re going to leave the shower and be presented with their towel. Imagination is kick-started and the creative juices begin to flow.

The Stendy’s form is available a good selection of sizes, and two very distinct designs;

The Vogue Stendy, which features soft round curvature and cylindrical tubes throughout, giving it an easy on the eyes look. Available in 6 sizes from 889mm tall to 1747mm tall, and 512mm wide to 612mm.

The Vogue Stendy Quad, made with four distinct flat sides on each tube, devoid of any rounded angles, and superbly suited to lovers of a good straight edge. Available in 2 sizes; 905mm x 480mm, and 1305mm x 480mm.

Both versions are made from high quality steel and finishing in premium grade chrome in order to create a bright and dazzling effect. Priding themselves on the quality of the Stendy, Vogue provide each model with full 15 year guarantee, which is 10 years longer than industry standard for normal steel radiators.

If you are interested in any version of the Vogue Stendy you can purchase them here but if you have any questions at all then please feel free to contact us on 01257 452879 or


Designer radiators like the Zehnder Vitalo Spa are exclusive, highly sought after and only available for a short amount of time. Sadly, the Vitalo Spa is no longer being manufactured by Zehnder, however we do have just one last model available here at DRS.


The masterminds at Zehnder hold many principles close to their heart, though none so close as their respect and care for the art of design. They favour tasteful and classy shapes, the sorts of forms able to make you stop, think and appreciate what has gone into creating them.

The Zehnder Vitalo Spa is one such model, so simple and soft on the eyes, but yet your attention is drawn to it like a moth to flame. We have a single brand new Vitalo Spa here at the Designer Radiator Showroom, in its box and HEAVILY discounted.


Our one-time-only, exclusive offer for the Vitalo Spa slashes its price from £684.00 (RRP), down to an amazing special price of £399.00 including VAT. That’s a saving of £285 and more than 40% off!

At a well-proportioned 1200mm tall and 490mm, it is large enough to hold your towels with ease but not so big that it would look out of place. The shape is softly edged yet well defined, and the Matt White powder coated finish is striking enough to give this very flat form some real depth and presence.

The common trend we are seeing more and more with our clientele today is that they are eternally bored by the traditional towel rail, but also no longer wowed by the shapes which have been getting greater exposure and use over the last 5-15 years. They want new, they want inventive, extravagant, and what our customers want; our customers get.

The Vitalo reshapes and reimagines the form of heating in the home, and with this one time offer available now you won’t want to miss out on the perfect opportunity snatch up a bargain this good!

To purchase the Vitalo or any other radiator, you can either contact us on 01257 442911, email us at, or pop in to see us at our Lancashire Designer Radiator Showroom with more than 150 models on display!
