With winter well on the way, it's time to prepare for the inevitable cold weather by turning up the radiators and keeping the warmth in. But, what if you never had to touch the dial on the radiator again? What if your radiator actually regulated itself so that you never had to worry about it again? Well, with thermostatic radiator valves, this could actually become possible. What is a thermostatic radiator valve? The thermostatic radiator valve (also known as TRV) is a self-regulating valve. You actually fit it to the hot water heating system in your radiator. They are usable on both gas and oil central heating systems, but it is advisable that you contact an expert before using a TRV on a solid fuel system. This is because they are not always compatible so it is a risky task. The TRV actually allows you to control individual rooms easily and without hassle, making them an especially good choice if you have a number of rooms to regulate the heat in. It was first invented in 1943 but was not actually produced on a wider scale until 1973 when we saw the first oil crisis. Nowadays, the TRV has a huge market audience and is distributed worldwide on a tremendous scale. How Does It Work? Whilst the process is somewhat complicated, you can take a look at this brief overview to help give you an understanding of how the whole process works together: • The TRV is made up of two separate parts. There is a valve which will close or open in order to maintain the flow of hot water. • There is also a sensor which directly controls whether or not the valve will open. • Within the sensor there is an actuator which contains a substance (wax, liquid or gas) that controls the valve. It opens or closes the valve based on the temperature of the room. • The temperature of the room is calculated through a connection between an actuator-spindle and the valve-spindle. This entire process is completed without the use of complex controls or electronics. The TRV can maintain a desired temperature even during the event of a sudden temperature drop. What Are The Benefits of using a TRV? Thermostatic radiator valves offer a few benefits. The obvious being the fact that you no longer have to worry about touching the dial of the radiator again. This will save you time and keep the house warm when you are out or asleep. TRVs are also surprisingly cheap and offer a potential saving in energy bills along with helping the environment through reduced Co2 emissions.
