Termostatic Radiator Valves
• TRV stands for "Thermostatic Radiator Valve" which controls the radiators, not the boiler. They will add to the effectiveness of any control system, even the fully pumped system.Thermostatic radiator valves will allow control of individual room temperature by gradually closing down a radiator if a room starts to overheat. A thermostatic radiator valve should not be fitted to the radiator located in the same room as the controlling room thermostat. Turning a thermostatic radiator valve to a higher setting will not make the room heat up any faster. Turning a thermostatic radiator valve to a lower setting will control the room at a lower temperature and save energy.
These valves need a free flow of air to sense the temperature, so they must not be covered by curtains or blocked by furniture. Heat from other items such as fires or televisions may stop the thermostat from working properly.Thermostatic radiator valves cannot turn off the boiler when the whole house is warm. You will need a room thermostat as well to do that.
• Suitable to use with Panel, Aluminum Panel and Cast Iron Radiators in central heating systems.
