Aluminium Radiators - Why You Should Consider One

Aluminium radiators are a great choice for your home as they heat up quickly and have an extremely high heat output compared to similar sized stainless steel radiators. Let’s get into why aluminium radiators are an excellent choice.

Advantages of Aluminium Radiators 

Aluminium radiators conduct heat extremely well, so your room is guaranteed to heat up faster and more efficiently. Aluminium models have a high BTU and the material conducts heat up to 5 times more efficiently than steel! If you're looking for high performance heating, they could be the perfect option. Here at Only Radiators, we have a selection of aluminium radiators from big brands such as Terma and Brenton. 

Disadvantages of Aluminium Radiators 

Aluminium radiators are renowned for their quick heat up times, but this also means they cool down pretty fast too. Opting for one of these radiators may make your room will feel colder faster as they don’t withhold as much heat as alternative options. These models can be more expensive than alternative mild steel options, but we offer a great range of cheap aluminium radiators that are as efficient as they are stylish. 

Aluminium Vertical Radiators

We have a range of aluminium vertical radiators in an array of sizes and styles, including matt white, anthracite and matt black. They’re lightweight and simple in design, so easy to install in your home. Vertical radiators are great space-saving options if you're short on wall space;  they make use of the whole height of the room, making the room appear larger.

Aluminium Horizontal Radiators

Horizontal radiators are perfect for living rooms and bedrooms and are available in an array of different designs. For a modern option, opt for a horizontal panel radiator for a sleek finish, or a column radiator to give a traditional touch.

Aluminium Heated Towel Rails

Aluminium towel rails are well-suited to the bathroom due to their great heat output and value for money. There’s nothing worse than a cold bathroom first thing in the morning, so an aluminium model will heat up quickly, ensuring a cosy space all year round. These heated towel rails are minimalist in design, therefore look great against a multitude of different bathroom schemes. 

How Much Do Aluminium Radiators Cost?

Most of our aluminium radiators are around the £200-£300 price point which is very competitive given their efficiency and popularity in many UK homes. The cost of aluminium is consistently reducing and we’re proud to be able to offer some great cost-effective models.
