Having thermostatic radiator valves is a money and energy saving addition to your heating system.
But just HOW does it save you money?
Thermostatic radiator valves sense the air temperature around them and regulate the flow of water through the radiator which they are connected to.
This means the air temperature of every room in your house can be controlled Independently!
When the valve reaches the set room temperature, it closes down and restricts the amount of flow rate through the radiator. This lightens the load on the boiler and effectively reduces the size of your heating system. If the boiler has less load, the burner will stay on for less time and therefore uses less gas.
Each number on the thermostatic valve represents an air temperature. For example, setting 3 may be 18 deg c. But each manufacturers settings may correspond to a slightly different air temperature.
