A curved radiator has become quite the trend among interior decorators and home owners – and with good reason, too. These radiators are equipped with several benefits that seem to work with just about any interior design style you want in your home. Best of all, they have the potential to save a fair amount of money.
What Exactly Are They?
Curved radiators have been designed with the intention of being a standalone radiation that offers all the benefits of the old-fashioned, cast-iron radiators, just with a modern twist. Many of today’s models are built with modern technology that makes them space-saving, far more efficient, and, importantly, environment friendly.
To put it simple: these radiators are high output systems that are designed with a physical curve. The systems possess all the usual benefits and features of the radiators you are used to: they can cool and heat the home, and can be made with a choice of materials from aluminium to cast iron. The systems are curved to fit into obscure places like the corner of a room or even under a bay window.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the major benefits that come with owning these types of radiators. Most benefits apply in a number of configurations.
- They Cool or Warm Problem Draft Spaces
Usually, the most drafty places in a home are the space under the bay windows which is exactly where these kinds of radiators work best. A strategically placed radiator with a curve can keep drafty areas in sync with your home’s ambient temperature, preventing cool or hot air from the outdoors spreading to the rest of the house.
- Fit Them into Awkward Spaces
When it comes to the radiators for bay windows, these systems are typically shaped in accordance with custom dimensions. Most companies will ask for a floor template – all you have to do is lay out a large piece of paper in the floor area where you want to install the radiator, and then cut to size and proportion of that space. That’s all that is needed to start curving the radiator to a custom fit.
- These Radiators Are Highly Fashionable and Affordable
While these radiators are certainly affordable, they don’t look like it at all! Homeowners can choose from a huge selection of shapes, styles, and colours, all built with materials that look amazing while also serving a functional purpose.
