Heating

Solutions To Heat Your House

Heating is pretty much a necessity in any household, especially considering the UK weather conditions. Whether you opt for heating in the form of a traditional convector radiator or something more tailored to the bathroom such as a heated towel rail, both are equally important in getting the job done. There’s nothing worse than stepping out the shower into a cold room or getting home from work to a freezing cold house, but thanks to innovative and affordable equipment, you no longer have to worry about this problem. With a wide range of efficient and stylish heating solutions, Plumbworld provide everything you need to get your house up to temperature!

Adey MagnaClean Professional 22mm Filter

Brillant idea - does the job!

Researched these devices and settled on the Magnaclean for build quality and the info on the maker's website. Fitted it no problem to brand new system (HEP20 piping, steel rads, S/S condensing boiler) and let it run for four weeks. Drained down to fit extra rad and had a look in the Magnaclean. Astonished to find it almost full of black iron slime! Must have been collected during the flushing process. Cleaned it and looked at it again 18 months later and it had much less black slime; about 6mm all over the plastic carrier, so it's still working even though the system is full of inhibitor. I guess the inhibitor can't do anything about the metal particles that are floating around, which is where the Magnaclean protects by taking them out of circulation. I was concerned about the possible effect of heat on the magnet but it still seems as strong (and it's VERY strong) now as when it was new. Although expensive, it's worth it for the peace of mind that those iron particles are not getting into my condensing boiler and clogging up its tiny waterways, as well as giving the system a longer rad life. Only one problem - when I closed the valves (which were very stiff) to clean it, the valves dripped (even though I have the version with the improved PTFE seals) but fortunately they stopped dripping when I opened them.

Danfoss RAS-D2 Thermostatic 8/10/15mm Reversible Angle TRV

This will save money and the environment

This is an excellent product. I used to have the radiators on a low setting in the bedrooms but sometimes they would still make the rooms too warm. These thermostatic valves are great. I tested them yesterday afternoon when the temperature in the bedroom was 18 degrees C. With the valve at the 3 seting the radiator didn't get warm at all. I tested it again last night when the temperature in the room was 12 degrees C. the radiator came on full for 15 minutes but when the room reached 16 degrees, the radiator turned off even though the heating was still on downstairs. This will save lots of wasted energy and keep the rooms at a comfortable temperature. I'm sure they will have paid for themselves within a couple of years They are also very easy to fit. I fitted them myself in 20 minutes while flushing the heating system.

Honeywell Wireless Programmable Thermostat CMT921A1042

Honeywell RF Thermostat

Unit arrived very quickly after I ordered it from Plumbworld. It was easily installed by the electrician from our local Heating and Plumbing company who service our Worcester Bosch Combi boiler and is working well. We have changed to a portable wireless thermostat because the fixed one in our bungalow is sited in a hallway that is exposed to the sun all day and gets much warmer than the rest of the property. We have the version that has the same settings for every day because we are retired, working families might want the 7 day timer version. It was easy to programme and is overridden by moving a slider from auto to manual when heat is required outside of the programme times. Very happy with it so far and the service from Plumbworld who, as well as delivering it very quickly, were very competitive.

Duratherm Heated Towel Rail 750 x 600mm Curved Manual

Value For Money

Not all towell rail heating elements are the same! Two previously installed by a plumber have burned out and so I decided to do this replacement myself. When I dismounted and flushed out the radiator I discovered why it had packed up. It was full of black gunge fom previous meltdowns from elements that, to me, were overpowered. The key, I am sure, is to use the lowest wattage element compatible with the size of the rad. Not only is it cheaper to run but you dont want a towell rail that scorches passing skin! I have bought this bit of kit before from Plumbworld for another radiator and it has worked flawlessly for the last 5 years so I have good hopes it will be a repeat performance. The build quality looks good for a no-frills piece of kit and the price is a third of many others on the market. Value for money. A definite yes.
