High Output Radiators: A List of the Best (Over 9000 BTU)

Browse the hottest high output radiators available to buy, because living in a cold house would kind of defeat the purpose of surrounding yourself with 4 walls and a roof. Obviously, this list doesn't include heating methods for industrial use; but if you want a hot radiator that goes above and beyond to heat even the largest dining room to a cosy high temperature - then let's give you some excellent high-temperature choices.

What is a High Output Radiator Exactly?

High output radiators refer to home radiators with a high BTU rating. A high BTU rating means you're looking at a high-temperature radiator, which means a hotter home.

High Output is Over 9000 BTU

There's no official point in which a home radiator becomes a high output radiator, but we (and others) define high output as a radiator with a BTU rating over 9000.

Why Aren't All Radiators High Output?

Not all radiators are high output radiators because not all radiators need to be, and not all radiators can be. You don't need a 20,000 BTU towel rail for a cloakroom toilet, and you probably couldn't find one if you tried. But while you could stick a high output radiator in a small room, your wallet and your guests would prefer you used a BTU calculator to prevent both unnecessary heating bills and avoid cooking visiting family members alive.

HIGH OUTPUT HEATED TOWEL RADIATORS?

The point of a towel rail is to be low-BTU, not high temperature, because wet towels don't need much to dry them. Most heated towel rails tend to be made of small/thin pipes which reduce the potential BTU. However, you might want a towel rail that doesn't just heat your towels but heats the room around it too. Two birds with one stone. So since high output towel rails are a different kettle of fish, have a look at the best high output towel radiators for your home.
