New online heat calculator for radiators

An online heat calculator has been launched by the Manufacturers Association of Radiators and Convectors (MARC) to help consumers choose the right radiator for each room in their home. Launching today, 10th November 2020, the handy tool is part of the Association’s ‘You are What You Heat’ campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the need to purchase quality, CE marked radiators.

Isaac Occhipinti, head of external affairs, MARC comments: “We wants to help consumers to find the right product. Factors such as room dimensions, window size, and wall material are used to calculate the required outputs of radiators, to adequately heat a room. The calculator can be used to determine the heat requirements of your room. Simply enter the details in the corresponding fields and it will show you how many Watts and ‘British Thermal Units’ (BTUs) you need to ensure your space is always warm, cosy and inviting.”

“Once you know the size and type of radiator that you need, make sure you only purchase radiators that are compliant with current standards-CE marked. Many consumers are not aware of what they need to be looking for when purchasing a radiator. One guaranteed way that consumers can have product assurance is to look out for MARC membership! All members of MARC must provide proof of product performance (CE marking), together with test certificates.”
