Breakout can be as aluminum and bimetal radiators, which are characterized by high strength, low thermal inertia and low weight. About what one is more reliable and efficient, conducted endless debates, but in practice the difference between these two types of heaters are not so great. Especially when it comes to their use in the heating of private houses, where there can be significant jumps in temperature or pressure of water, and she is usually fairly well cleaned. Steel radiators are usually tubular or panel. The panel is a sheet of steel, shaped and welded together so that between them formed the channels through which flows the coolant. Such devices heat very well give off heat, but are relatively small (about 10-12 years old) life. For private home heating system best for heat transfer and reliability for today are steel pipe radiators, which are usually seamless pipe without joints or welds, which provide the necessary configuration (Arbonia, Sira, etc.).
In addition, such devices are heating can have the most intricate shape, which opens wide scope for the imagination of the designer of interiors (there are even radiators, "disguised" under the bench – for example, Zehnder Bank). Heating of a private house: fixtures of heating devices other than true heaters, need to select valves for their hand-off or control devices to control their heat. The first option – it is well known to all the ball valve. He has only two positions – "open" and "closed", and for him to switch to human presence.
