    Cast iron style radiators

    Heating Engineers

    Looking to replace our stelrad radiators for some cast iron style ones but our system is fitted with plastic pipe work. Would these type of radiators be compatible with our plastic pipe work? Looking for something that holds the heat better ..

    "Yes, you can fix any type of Rad to PVC heat pipe. because it's PVC there is minimum heat lost through the pipe and the rad gains more heat produced from the boiler."
