Terma Hex Radiator - Mustard Yellow

Love this radiator, saw it all over Facebook and finally took the plunge and did not regret it at all! Makes my bathroom look super trendy and actually much warmer than I thought it would be. Toasty towels in the morning. Thanks HS for your help with sizing and the many delivery requests I had.

Works well but not eco friendly

The issue with this element is that it is either on and heating or you have to manually turn it off. The comfort mode is always on so the radiator is heated 24 hrs a day if you want to use any of the timer or boost functions. I thought it could just be on at set times and off the rest, but it can't.

Terma Hex Radiator - Copper

Absolutely love this radiator from heating-style.co.uk, the Terma hex radiator is so unique and reminds me of honeycomb. Looks amazing in Copper, trying to convince the wife we need the black one in the en-suite next. Love it. Thanks guys.

I contacted the company to send to France.Delivery was quick and efficient.The unit plus remote control work very well and I am very pleased.I will have no hesitation in using this company when required.

Excellent product

We are fitting out 3 holiday cottages and didn't want the towel radiators on all day , the bluetooth and app option gives us the ability to set them to come on and off several times a day to provide a little bit of towel warming without wasting energy during the summer season and not overheating the room - 2 ordered and fitted - 3rd one just ordered.

Holiday time! Should I turn the heating off?

Holiday time! Should I turn the heating off?

Aug 03, 2017

It’s the time of year where you’re bound to have a holiday planned, you’ll probably be counting down the days to when you’ll get that much needed vitamin sea! Next to planning, arranging tickets, transport, money and passports. You may also be wondering what you should do with your heating while you’re away.

The answer depends on when you are actually going on holiday. As in the peak of summer, it isn’t necessary. You can switch off your heating to save money with the peace of mind you won’t have any adverse consequences in relation to your home or your heating system.

As for the winter, or in the colder times of the year then leaving your heating on is advised. Not only to keep your house warm and cosy so that you don’t have to worry about returning to a freezing cold home, but it also means it will prevent pipes from freezing. However, we would recommend to not leave your heating on full when there isn’t anyone there to enjoy it. Turning your thermostat down to an economical level will keep your house warm and be much more energy efficient. Also most thermostats have a frost setting and should be used if it has one to prevent water freezing and damaging the pipes. However, all pipes should be lagged with insulation to protect them from the cold - especially in a loft.

If saving money is your main concern, the good news is modern heating systems won’t use energy when there isn’t any need for extra warmth. Some you can program to only come on for a few hours each day and some can even be set to come back on the day before you return home. This helps especially when you are going away when the weather can’t decide, you can find out more about this in our blog ‘What is the best way to manage our heating in the unpredictable British weather?’

Another concern may be about your boiler leaking. But don’t worry, modern boilers are mostly safe, if they’ve been built since 1996 they’ll be fitted with safety measures and if you get your boiler serviced regularly there’s no need to panic. If you have an older boiler however, you may need to get your boiler serviced before you go away or turn it off while you’re away.
