Distinctive features of different types of heating batteries

Advantages and disadvantages of heating radiators

Panel: steel batteries consisting of one or more flat panels connected by ribbed jumpers.

 The coolant enters the panel, heats them, and from them it is already heated by ribbed surfaces. Due to their design, panel radiators heat the room due to heat radiation and due to convection and heat from ribbed surfaces. Therefore, such radiators are one of the most effective.

Convectors: heat the room due to air circulation. Warm air comes out of the convector, rises up, and the colder, cooled down falls down and again enters the convector for heating. Convectors are made of cast iron, steel, aluminum or their alloys.
