If you’re a homeowner in Australia, you’ve likely heard of radiators and radiant wall panels, but do you know the difference between them? Read on to find out more about these two heating solutions and the benefits of installing radiator heating.

When it comes to heating homes, modern radiators are very efficient devices that can help keep homes warm and cosy while reducing energy bills. Radiant wall panels, on the other hand, use a different kind of heat transfer to spread warmth around the room. So what are the main differences between these two heating solutions?

Radiators are metal structures with a series of metal fins connected to a central pipe. Hot water is circulated through this pipe, which in turn heats up the fins and radiates heat out into the room. Radiators are usually placed against an external wall and they can be used alongside other heating systems such as convection heaters or underfloor heating systems. They also come in a range of sizes and designs to suit any home.

Radiant wall panels, on the other hand, use infrared radiation to spread warmth throughout a room. This type of heating system works by emitting infrared rays which directly heat objects in the room rather than just warming up air like traditional radiators do. Radiant wall panels don’t need to be placed next to an external wall as they don’t rely on convective heat transfer like radiators do; instead they can be installed anywhere in the room, including on internal walls or ceilings.

When it comes to energy efficiency, both radiators and radiant wall panels can help reduce energy bills by using less energy than traditional convection heaters or air-conditioning systems. Radiators typically require less energy than radiant wall panels as they don’t need as much power to warm up objects directly; however radiant wall panels can help reduce energy bills even further as they are able to target specific areas within a room that need extra warmth such as windowsills or couches that are far away from an external wall where a radiator might not reach effectively.

In terms of cost savings from installing radiator heating systems, homeowners in Australia stand to save up to 30% per year on their energy bills with correctly installed radiator systems compared with standard convection heaters or air-conditioning systems (source: Department of Industry). This cost saving increases even further if homeowners choose Euroheat Australia for their design & installation services; with over 30 years experience in designing & constructing hydronic heating & cooling systems they use high-efficiency components which can give homeowners an additional 10 – 15% reduction in their annual energy costs compared with standard installations (source: Euroheat Australia).

So there you have it – when it comes to choosing between radiators and radiant wall panels for your home’s heating system there are many factors at play including efficiency, cost savings and design considerations. However no matter which option you choose you’re sure to benefit from reduced energy costs over time thanks to modern technology!
