Choices Available

DIY: Because of the standard sizes of radiators, companies making radiator covers have also introduced DIY versions of radiators that can save a lot of your money.  You can buy these DIY versions depending upon the size of your radiator. All you need is to assemble the different parts and then cover the radiator with these covers so that they do not look odd and the radiator is completely covered. But some people find it hard to assemble and install these DIY radiator covers, and also some of these do not fit into your radiator size perfectly.

Readymade radiator cabinets: Depending upon the size of your radiator, you can get a perfect match in local hardware stores or on websites that are selling radiator covers online.

Made to measure: This is perhaps the best option. You ask for quotes from many reputable companies that manufacture radiator covers. They send craftsmen to take measurements of your radiator and then make a perfectly matching cabinet as per your liking, in the shape and design you select from their catalogue. Fitters from the company arrive and install the cabinet to your satisfaction without any glitches. Of course this is also a little expensive procedure but you will find that in the long run you have actually saved money as because of proper fit and better heat efficiency, your radiator cover lasts longer and also results in electricity saving.

Style or Better Efficiency

Radiators work on the principle of convection where the heat current moves upwards. By the time the current reaches the ceiling, it becomes cool and then sinks down, thus contradicting the claim of the manufacturer that radiators give a uniform heating effect. This means that there is a considerable difference of temperature between the floor and the ceiling of the room and it takes a very long time for the radiator to heat the room uniformly. Made to measure radiator covers actually enhance the heat efficiency of radiators as they cover it perfectly and their grill system is scientifically made to perform heating in a far better manner.
