What is a thermostatic radiator valve (TRV)?

Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) sense the temperature of the air around them and regulate the flow of water through the radiator accordingly. They do not control the boiler.

TRVs should be set at a level that gives you the room temperature you want. These settings may have to be different in each room, and you should set the TRVs to suit each room and then leave them to do their job.

Turning a TRV to a higher setting will not make the room heat up any faster. How quickly the room heats up depends on the boiler and the size and type of radiator. Turning a TRV to a lower setting will result in the room being controlled at a lower temperature, and saves energy.

TRVs need a free flow of air to sense the temperature, so they must not be covered by curtains or blocked by furniture.

TRVs cannot turn off the boiler when the whole house is warm. To do that, your boiler will need to be controlled by a thermostat in a room. The radiator in the room the boiler thermostat is in should not normally have a TRV. If it does, keep the TRV on the maximum setting and adjust the boiler‟s thermostat as explained in the instructions for your boiler.

Leading innovation in heating control and bringing “Thermostatic Radiator Valve’s” (TRV’s) in to 21st Century, the innovative award winning eTRV controls radiators individually, only heating rooms when needed. Surpassing the requirements of building regulations, eTRV provides both time and temperature control, enabling every room to be treated as an individual heating zone. 

eTRV gives realistic potential for 25% energy savings. Three programmes each day maximise savings and the precise thermostat reacts quickly, improving comfort. crawl test Fitting to existing or new heating systems is simple and can contribute to making substantial reductions to UK carbon emissions.

Each eTRV controls a radiator valve to regulate the heating in the room, based on time programmes, set temperatures and how the room is used.

A remote control and LED indicator (a red, yellow or green light) allows you to programme and use the eTRV easily.

Using the eTRV electronic thermostatic radiator va;ve improves your comfort and saves energy, and could be the perfect energy saving heating control for you.

 eTRV provides a cost effective alternative to the more traditional thermostatic radiator valves.  Call us today on 01582 748 700 or email info@chalmor.co.uk.
