Warm home - warm water: this section of the Reuter online store focuses on heating. You'll find electric underfloor heating, radiators, heating appliances, hot water tanks and various accessories here. Here's what to consider when purchasing a radiator.
Heating: Proper Heating Using the Best Technology
From decorative room heating and practical bathroom heating to hidden underfloor heating: modern radiators provide cosy warmth, economical heating and create homely accents in a reliable and energy-saving way. Compared to their predecessors, modern radiator technology offers plenty of benefits. You'll find a large selection of appliances in our online store. If you're looking for an economical heating appliance, there are many good reasons to replace your old radiators in the living room and bathroom with new ones.
Modern Radiators are More Efficient and Therefore More Economical
This is not only because many old radiators are no longer compatible with modern heating systems or are not suitable for modern heating pumps and solar heating, but also because modern radiators consume less energy, are more flexible to control, give off heat quicker and create a comfortable, low-dust room climate. There are many good arguments for replacing your radiators.
One reason: new radiators look even more attractive - simply take a look at these modern flat panel radiators. Gone are the days of having to hide bulky radiators behind more attractive objects. Modern heating appliances can be optimally integrated into a variety of room designs, from invisible underfloor heating and neutral, flat panel radiators to impressive works of heating art; virtually anything is possible.
No More Cold Feet Thanks to Underfloor Heating
Underfloor heating is commonly found in new builds but is also a growing favourite when modernising older houses. No longer an unaffordable luxury, this hidden underfloor heating provides highly efficient room heating creating a comfortable, healthy heat thanks to its even heat distribution. Another thing customers love: much more than other radiators, underfloor heating allows maximum design freedom since you don't have to make room for heating appliances.
Pipe radiators have become a firm favourite in many bathrooms these days. Whether as additional heating for underfloor heaters or on their own, these pipe-shaped radiators which circulate water in their cavities not only look great but are also extremely practical for warming towels. Pipe radiators exist for virtually every customer requirement: in addition to attractive bathroom radiators, we offer a large selection of elegant living room radiators and heated room dividers in the Reuter bathroom store.

Local Heating or Central Heating - That is the Question
The term 'heating' encompasses the heating of the building as well as the radiators. When it comes to building heating we need to differentiate between local heating and central heating. Local heating warms only the nearby surroundings or a particular room. Examples of this are fan heaters, radiant heaters and electric storage heaters.
Local heating also includes wood burning stoves and tiled stoves. Central heating, on the other hand, is where hot water from a central source is pumped into radiators in various rooms. The central source could be an oil heating system, gas heating system, heat pump or wood boiler.
A hot water tank is usually required for all central heating systems. If this is not available, an instantaneous water heater may be required in the kitchen or bathroom. With instananeous water heaters, hot water is only produced when needed. It is controlled hydraulically or electronically or can even be fully electronically regulated.
It's still also possible to find water boilers. These deliver warm, hot or boiling water as required. For guest toilets and other small rooms where hot water didn't use to be provided, you can now find compact instananeous water heaters.
Correct Radiator Bleeding
Water-bearing radiators occasionally require bleeding if they stop heating properly and start clunking and banging. Bleeding radiators is no big deal as long as you have the right tools. You'll need a radiator key, a container and a cloth.
- Completely turn off every radiator and switch off the circulation pump (if possible).
- Wait at least half an hour.
- Begin by bleeding the highest-placed radiator. Open the valve using the radiator key until hot water begins to drip. Catch any drips using the cloth and container.
- Once all the radiators have been bled, turn the circulation pump back on.
- Check to see if the boiler requires more water to be added (you can use a garden hose to do this). Your radiator instructions should tell you what water pressure is required.
- After one hour, bleed the highest-placed radiator again. No or hardly any water should drip out.
How High to Turn the Radiator?
Many people turn their thermostat up completely because they believe the radiators will heat up faster. This is not the case. A sensor in the thermostatic head measures the temperature and engages the heating until the set temperature has been reached. The heating therefore does not heat up quicker, but for longer. At level 3, the room is heated to 20 or 21 degrees Celsius. Every additional degree increases energy consumption by around six percent. If you turn your thermostat up to the max, your wallet will feel the effects more.
