What is a Halcyon Radiator?
Halcyon radiators are a brand of radiators, exclusive to City Plumbing. They are a range of well-made compact radiators and designed to be as efficient as possible. There are three types available:
Single Convector K1 Compact Radiators
Double Convectors K2 Compact Radiator
Double Panel Plus P+ Compact Radiators
Within those types, each comes in a variety of different sizes and thus can cater to different levels of BTU.
There are a few features that all Halcyon radiators have in common. For instance, they all come with a 10 year warranty. They all come with the fittings needed to attach them to the wall, and they are all finished to RAL9016, making them suitable for central heating systems. They are all guaranteed to work to a maximum pressure of 145psi.
When delivering all Halcyon radiators we ensure that they are protected as much as possible during the transportation process.
All Halcyon radiators have those factors in common, but what are the different varieties? Where do they differ?
What BTU/h can Halcyon radiators provide?
As an installer or a plumber, you will know that BTU is the British thermal unit, a measurement that shows how long it takes for one pound of water to be raised in temperature by one degree Fahrenheit. It is calculated with water by the flow rate in GPM, of water, multiplied by result of the temperature leaving process minus the temperature process. This is then multiplied by 500.4. The formula changes slightly with other fluids, but for water it’s fairly simple.
What this means is the higher the BTU the faster a radiator will heat a room (assuming the room doesn’t change in size).
The Halcyon compact radiator range comes with radiators that are designed for every type of room. These range in power from 880 BTU to 9376 BTU, meaning they can be used to heat different sized rooms. This scope actually makes the Halcyon range incredibly versatile, and the right radiator can be used to heat a room efficiently.
What sizes do Halcyon radiators come in?
Like with the range in BTU, Halcyon radiators come in several different sizes, ranging from small to large. The smallest radiator in the Halcyon range is only 300x400mm
, meaning it can fit into the smallest of spaces. On the contrary, the largest radiator within the range is a Double Convector K2 Compact Radiator, coming in at 700x1400mm.
The scope of different sizes means that Halcyon radiators are not only a wise choice from a BTU perspective, but it means that aesthetically they have range to fit a number of different room styles.
Between those two sizes, there is a Halcyon radiator to fit. They come as narrow as 300mm, as wide as 1600mm, and every size in between.
