    New radiator recommendations please. 9th Feb 18 at 5:11 PM
    Hi
    We are renewing all our radiators during a complete refurb of our house.
    Husband is a retired (many years ago) Heating Engineer. He is looking for recommendations on good quality radiators at a reasonable price (of course!). Also where to source them.

    I just had Kartell radiators put in, seem to be fine. My installer got them from MP Moran.

    They seem to be standard, everyday radiators. Nothing fancy.

    I have Kudox radiators
    the good thing is they have 4 entrance's for the pipework,
    which is good if you have air blockage as you can drain from the top of radiator with a hose attached
    they do show signs of rust in my bathroom after 3 yrs, (my bathroom must be streamy) so I replace the bathroom rad every 3-4 yrs

    This is so annoying, why don't they make a better quality radiator for the bathroom with extra rust protection on it, we would be happy to pay extra for it.

    because kudox are cheap radiators for the diy let only in my opinion. Stelrad do a range designed for bathrooms that shouldn’t rust so bad.

    I bought Avova column rads which I think look a lot better than the normal type.

    Basic towel rack rad in my mums bathroom, about 6 years old. No probs.

    Just had one of these put in my own bathroom, pretty effective.
