Installation of aluminum radiators

Types of radiators.Which is better?

When choosing appliances that will serve to heat the surrounding space in the room, be guided by the following requirements:

  • efficiency, in terms of ensuring a comfortable temperature in the room (common standards - 18-20? C);
  • comfort and aesthetic appearance of heating devices;
  • sufficient mechanical strength and ease of use.

Today, the modern market of sanitary products to offer their customers several types of radiators:

  1. Cast-iron batteries, adopted for installation in apartments in the last century;
  2. Steel systems for space heating;
  3. Fashionable and lightweight aluminum devices that can not withstand the pressure of the coolant in the central urban system;
  4. Electric wall and floor warming of the air in the room;
  5. Bimetallic radiators.

Types of radiators .Which is better?

Installation of bimetallic radiators

name "Bimetallic" means that the radiator design work combined elements made of two different metals.In this case, steel and aluminum.High-quality alloy steel is able to withstand high atmospheric load of hot water traffic on the central nervous system teplopodachi.It is because it is made the inner surface of the double radiator.Aluminum, in turn, has excellent heat-conducting characteristics, so it is made from a bimetallic battery housing.

Mounting devices can be done on its own, following the instructions of the plant - manufacturer, but it is better to entrust this work to a specialist.

Installation of bimetallic radiators .

What is needed when installing

During the installation of radiators should take into account the fact that the connecting device is used as a right-hand and left-hand thread on the coupling nut.Therefore, you need to stock up on the set of fixing and connecting elements with the two types of thread.Before battery installation of bimetallic sections they need to collect, using a special radiator key.

What is needed at installation

great importance when the heating installation is the material that is used to connect couplings and fittings.This can be:

  • Ribbon fum;
  • resistant sealant;
  • Tango - thread.

necessary to apply sufficient force, but do not overdo it, to not win when tightening the connection thread.

Placing radiators must be at a distance of 5 cm from the walls and up to 20 cm above the floor to ensure a comfortable clean under the battery.If the device is placed under the windowsill, it should be about 10 cm between it and the radiator.

What is needed at installation

The body of bimetallic radiator cover in the manufacture of protective plastic sheath to avoid mechanical damage of aluminum.This film must be removed after installation of the heating, and preferably, after repairs in the room where the new bimetallic radiators installed.
