Help & Advice

BTU Radiator Calculator

Our BTU (British Thermal Units) calculator will help you to work out the heat requirement for your room, and recommend the number of radiators you will need to comfortably heat it.

What is a BTU?

A British Thermal Unit (BTU) is a measure of heat output from a radiator. Depending on the size of your room, the number and type of windows and what the room is used for, you'll need more or less heat. If you have a higher BTU requirement, it might be better to use more than one radiator to deliver the heat you'll need to a room. The total BTU output of several smaller radiators may meet your needs.

How do I choose the right radiator?

The BTU value of all our radiators is clearly labelled in-store and online, helping you find those which suit your requirements.

Step 1: Which room you are heating?
Step 2: What are the dimensions of the rooms?
Are you measuring in metres or feet?:

Please enter the length of your room in your chosen units (metres or feet)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, simple device used for over 9 years I had this fitted with my new boiler 9 years ago and I have found it easy to use and so flexible to have all the different times to set at different temperatures throughout the day, and you can choose a different pattern for weekends too. It's just been replaced by a Worcester controller with our new boiler, but only because it was a specification of the extended guarantee. I hope the new one is as easy and effective. I don't understand why anyone finds it difficult to programme, just follow the simple instructions ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple This works well. The 5 settings are not on and off times they are "target times". That is 5 points in the day with a temperature setting for each time. The temp set for each time point is the temp the thermostat/boiler will aim to maintain until the next target time when it will change to whatever that temperture is set for. You can over-ride the set temperature by 1/2 degree steps up or down and that becomes your target temperature until the next time point when it will revert to the temp set for that time point. yo can adjust the temp up or down at any time but the next time/temp point will over-ride any manual adjustmant you have made since the last "auto" time/temp setting. Once you understand HOW it works instead of thinking "old" type thermostats, you will be able to set it correctly. Must admit the instructions could do to be a bit simpler to understand and larger print

Rated 3 out of 5 by from its not brilliant. Design seems terrible to me. 5 possible time settings? Why not either have 4 or 6.?That way you could have either 2 or 3 on periods....rather than 2 on periods and......a wasted 5th period.. Why on earth cant it just have an on/off switch, or boost to give you an hours heating - seems more complicated that it needs to be.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks simple but isn't You need to set aside a lot of time to programme this device. There are too few buttons doing many many functions. Resetting it is a nightmare - think over a hundred separate steps. Mine has cost a fortune in wasted gas.It's always switching itself on in the middle of the night. Only buy if you don't mind wasting energy and enjoy the challenge of overcoming needlessly confusing programming . I'm getting rid of mine for something else.
