Why install Thermostatic Radiator Valves?
If you have a central heating system, whether its gas, LPG or oil-fired, your full set of controls should ideally include a boiler thermostat, a timer or programmer, thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) and a room thermostat.
TRVs are fitted to radiators and are used to control the temperature within the room. When used properly, they will significantly reduce the energy used by the heating system by limiting the temperatures within each room, and prevent overheating.
The replacement of a manual heating control with a TRV has been estimated to save at least 280 kilograms (620 lb) CO2 per year. They are also considerably cost-efficient, using heat only when needed, and can reduce heating bills by up to 17 percent a year. visit the Energy Saving Trust for further information.
