Buying Guide

Introduction

Installing some quality heating is an important aspect of any bathroom build but you should be aware that you won't usually receive any valves with your radiator or heated towel rail. This can sometimes lead to confusion about exactly what it is that you'll need from your radiator valves, but in this guide we'll talk you through the important things you need to be aware of.

Can I get valves which match the style of my radiator?

Of course! If you've spent some time choosing the perfect radiator for your bathroom then you'll want to find something stylish to complement it. There are plenty of designs to pick from including classic crosshead radiator valves which are great for traditional fixtures; and sleek, modern options for a more contemporary touch.

What are straight valves and angled valves?

Not all radiator valves are the same and you need to know what the differences between them are to ensure you get the right type. Look at where your valve inlets are on the radiator as this will determine what you need.

Straight: These valves simply connect to your central heating from pipework which comes up through the floor.

Angled: A more popular option these days. These valves feature a 90 degree angle which allows you to join up with the inlet valve either horizontally or vertically. Usually used when pipework comes out from a wall (which makes them ideal if you're positioning a heated towel rail in an awkward place in the room).

Manual and thermostatic options

Another thing to think about is whether you need manual or thermostatic valves.

Manual: These are really popular, which is partly due to the amount of stylish designs on the market. They work a bit like taps, in that you turn them on or off to alter the flow of water entering the radiator to adjust the level of heat.

Thermostatic: Also known as a TRV, these valves will allow you to keep a consistent temperature depending on what you've set it at. It will adjust the temperature to suit the room, preventing any overheating issues and also keeping your bills down in the process.

It's also worth paying attention to building regulations regarding these valves too as they will dictate what you should be using.

How easy are they to fit?

It can be quite tough to install radiator valves yourself if you've never done anything like this before. If you have experience with DIY and a decent knowledge of plumbing then you probably won't struggle but for complete amateurs we'd suggest getting a plumber out.
