How Do Dual Fuel Radiators Work?

What Is a Dual Fuel Radiator?

Dual fuel radiators essentially give the choice of using either electric or central heating on one radiator.

You can have the whole central heating system running, normally in the winter months, or you can choose to just have the chosen towel radiator running by using the electric option. This is especially useful in the summer (if you just want to warm a towel and not the whole house!) and makes it a real economical choice.

For installation, you would require both central heating pipes coming into your room, and an electric element connected to a fused spur.

A radiator heating element heats the radiator when used as electric operating. 

Radiator valves are required to control the water from the central heating system. You can have either manual radiator valves, or thermostatic radiator valves for setting the radiators operating temperature independently to the whole system. 

At Great Rads, we have a fantastic selection of radiators that can be used for dual fuel use which are becoming an increasingly popular choice due to their versatility and choice of heating options.
