Is A Manual Radiator Valve Or A Thermostatic Valve Better?

This depends on how you will use your radiator. Manual radiator valves are more common and more popular in rooms not often used like utility rooms but some people do prefer them in their living rooms.

Thermostatic radiator valves are more commonly used in busy rooms such as living rooms and kitchens, they provide more control so if you have issues with your room being to hot when your heating is on, these valves are perfect for allowing you to control the temperature of your radiator.

When choosing manual or thermostatic, think about how you would use your radiator and if you have issues with the heating in said room. Answering these questions will help you determine if a manual or thermostatic valve would be best for you.

Do Chrome Radiator Valves Rust?

If chrome is not properly maintained you can have the issue of it rusting, though chrome is very easy to clean, so as long as the chrome radiator valve is correctly cared for you shouldn’t have any issues in keeping your chrome radiator valve set rust-free for a long time. All you need to do to keep chrome valves in top condition is to wash it with mild soapy water with a soft cloth or sponge and then make sure to dry it thoroughly with a soft dry towel. Chrome can easily scratch so make sure to use soft sponges only.

What Radiator Valve Will I Need?

Radiator valves come in 3 more common shapes. Angled, straight and cornered, these do not fit all radiators so be careful when purchasing a new radiator valve. The shape you need will be determined by where your pipework is and where the radiator connections are. See below for a helpful explanation of each valve shape.

Angled valves - These are suitable for radiators with side connections and pipework that comes from the floor.
Straight valves - These are suitable for radiators with underneath connections and pipework that exits the floor.
Corner valves - These valves are suitable for pipework that comes from the wall and radiators with either side or underneath connections.

Do I Need New Valves If I’m Buying A New Radiator?

That depends on if the radiator has the same connections as your current radiator. For example, if your radiator has side connections and the pipework comes from the floor, and you buy a new radiator that also has side connections then you will not need to replace the valves.

You will only need to replace your valves if the radiator has different connections. However, we do recommend replacing your radiator valves if they are old or don’t match your new radiator.
