MARC puts Green Deal case for radiators
Representatives from the Manufacturers’ Association of Radiators & Convectors (MARC) have met with the Department of Energy & Climate Change to put the case for radiators to be included in the Green Deal.
Stewart Clements from MARC said, ‘Modern high-performance steel-panel radiators work extremely well with low water temperatures, making them an ideal choice for eco-conscious home owners.
‘They start performing as soon as the water in the system, and therefore the panel, becomes warmer than the surrounding space. Low-water-temperature heating systems using modern panel radiators are one of the most efficient ways of using heating energy to deliver warmth.
‘As radiators need only small volumes of warm water to operate efficiently they work well with all heat sources, and we believe that DECC should include them in the energy efficiency measures available through the Green Deal initiative.’
