    recommendations on what radiators will be heat a semi-detached home for a family of four

    Heating Engineers

    I've been researching all sorts of radiators, from single panel to horizontal to column types. What is the best type to have fitted in a semi-detached home for a family of four?

    "You need to measure the size of each room and work out the BTU's. Once you know this then you can decide which radiator will be suitable."

    "Hi, the type of radiator fitted can be which every style you like - normal panel or designer or traditional. The important part is that it is sized correctly to the rooms heat requirements by calculation the heat loss for the room. this will ensure your room is heated sufficiently for comfort and efficiency of the heating system as a whole."

    "It's best to measure each room and also look at the boiler you have currently.
    Normally in a semi I would go for double radiators, some nice designer radiators would be a great choice .
    Look at BTU of each radiator and then see if its large enough for the room.

    Thanks for reading."

    Its at matter of taste and budget. There is some radiators that I can source which are very different and affordable. Btw of room would be checked to make sure whichever radiator fitted would be powerful enough
