Every radiator has a different heating process and system installed within it. For instance, open heating systems are not appropriate for all radiators. Some of the often utilised systems are mentioned here:
Most radiators have a standard central heating system connected to anelectric, gas or oil boiler. This boiler heats the water and circulates heat across the home.
Closed Circuit Heating System
As the name suggests, this is a closed system wherein the water is sealed in the heating system. This water cannot be replaced and continually circulates throughout the room.
