Modern heating equipment in stores has a wide variety of choices. Among the large number of models on the market, it is difficult to find the optimally suitable option. Homeowners try to choose a radiator that is able to warm the room well, has an aesthetically attractive appearance and is distinguished by an acceptable cost.
How to choose a radiator? Before you go shopping for a radiator, you need to create for yourself a brief sequence of actions:
- Of all the proposed options, you must choose the one that is most suitable in terms of external data: size, shape, color, design, etc.
- It is required to compare the cost of the radiator you like with the available budget.
- It is necessary to check the technical parameters of the radiator with regard to the requirements for operation.
- It is necessary to choose the radiator that can optimally heat the entire area of the room, that is, it must have a sufficient power level.
- The selected battery must be checked for completeness.
The radiator must have the most suitable pressure. The magnitude of the working pressure is only relevant for apartment buildings. For a private house does not necessarily pay attention to this characteristic. In autonomous systems, the pressure level preferably does not exceed 4 bar.
If a comfortable temperature is maintained in a house or apartment, then it becomes cozy and warm, so people thoroughly approach the choice of a radiator for a house or apartment. Consider all types of radiators that exist today.
Bimetallic radiators have a large number of advantages. They are durable and able to withstand hydraulic shocks with ease. They have excellent chemical resistance characteristics.
In addition, bimetallic models are characterized by diversity. You can easily pick up a radiator that fits perfectly into the design of the room. All models are compact and lightweight.
Bimetallic radiators are of two types. They can be ordinary or semi-metallic. The first type includes models that have a shell of aluminum and a steel rod. Such models are very durable and prevent leakage. In the second form, steel is used to strengthen vertical tubes. Such design differs in a high thermolysis and the attractive price.
Choosing a bimetallic battery, decide on the design of the future heater. The design can be sectional and monolithic. Monolithic models are characterized by a longer period of service. They are able to withstand a higher working pressure. However, monolithic products are much more expensive sectional.
Bimetallic structures are able to withstand a pressure of 35 atmospheres. The product is designed for the coolant with 95 degrees. Heat transfer fluid is 70 degrees.
