Save on Fuel Bills With Our Energy Efficient Radiators

Energy Efficient Radiators

Even with the news of the latest price freeze, the rising cost of energy is a pressing concern for many and has led more people to consider installing energy efficient radiators. 

In early September, short-lived Prime Minister, Liz Truss, put some measures in place to help us all, by capping the annual typical household energy bill at £2,500 until 2024. While this was a relief to worried families across the country, when energy prices rose on 1st October, we’re still in a position where we’re paying the highest price ever for energy.

Column Radiators Through The Ages

Coumn Radiators

At Carron, we pride ourselves on our range of Cast Iron Column Radiators. They are made via a process that combines traditional methods with modern techniques. A CAD drawing is taken and the image is transformed into a precision CNC mould, which is then pressed into a sand box. Then, the pressing is filled with smelting pig-iron (or iron ore) to make sections. These sections are then joined together using connectors and gaskets.

Understanding The BTU Calculator

BTU Calculator

At Carron, we have a range of radiators to suit your home, which are available in over 50 different styles. To help you in your selection here’s some information about the BTU calculator. BTU stands for ‘British Thermal Unit’, which is a standardised unit of heat. The BTU Calculator is a tool that helps you to work out the amount and size of radiators that you will need to heat a room effectively. It’s the first step in choosing radiators, as you don't want to underheat a room or have a radiator that is of a size that isn't necessary. We hope the BTU calculator aids you in making the most of your buying experience with us.
