Q What are the advantages of using cast iron radiators?

A Cast Iron radiators retain their heat and therefore emit heat for longer periods into your room unlike a modern pressed steel radiator. Cast iron radiators are also aesthetically more pleasing to look at than a steel panel radiator.


Q I have standard pressed steel radiators, can I replace them with cast iron using the existing pipe work?

A Yes, cast iron radiators can be fitted into the same pipework as the existing plain pressed steel radiators.


Q Do I need to change my boiler if I install cast iron radiators?

A No, if you are simply converting your existing radiators to cast iron radiators and your boiler is in good working order your boiler will not require changing.


Q How do I make sure each radiator is the correct heat output for my room?

A There is an easy to use heat loss calculator on the AEL website which will help you work out the heat requirement for each room (in BTU’s or watts).


Q I would like my plumber to sort this out for me, can he ring AEL on my behalf?

A Yes, the plumber can contact AEL. This is part of the service AEL provides.


Q Can I fit thermostatic valves to my cast iron radiators?

A Yes, AEL have a large selection of traditional and contemporary valves for cast iron radiator.

Q Do I need to reinforce the floor to accommodate the radiators?

Q Will they need to be secured to the wall?
