Looking at why Castrads radiators are stylish as well as sustainable
Hidden away in Leeds is an unexpected little community called Secret Garden, where homes are built with sustainability in mind. Secret Garden is a climate innovation district, created specifically to combat climate change. Castrads radiators were chosen for one of the homes because they’re compatible with sustainable heating, such as air and ground source heat pumps.
Castrads radiators are a sustainable heating option with a timeless aesthetic. Castrads is committed to working against inbuilt obsolescence, with radiators that are built to last centuries. Castrads is the first radiator company working towards using exclusively recycled iron and mycelium packaging.
Castrads provides innovative technology, like their thermostatic control valves, that encourage people to heat their homes efficiently, reducing energy use and wasted heat. This fully mechanical valve allows you to set the ambient temperature in the room. When the room reaches the desired temperature, the valve closes and the radiator stops heating. The room then cools, the valve opens and the radiator begins to heat again.
While cast iron radiators look at home in period properties, Castrads’ wide range of colours and styles fit seamlessly into more contemporary homes as well. Castrads offers 24 exclusive finishes in their Bare Metal and Signature ranges as well as any colour from Farrow & Ball, Little Greene or Benjamin Moore, giving you over 500 colour options.
Castrads’ Mercury line was created by their in-house design engineers. With 15 height and depth variations, it is the most comprehensive radiator range ever created. With so many size options, the Mercury is perfect for a cohesive look throughout your whole house. Whether you’re looking for something tall and narrow in a hallway or short and wide enough to double as a window seat, the Mercury is the ideal choice.
Castrads offers virtual and on-site consultations, heat loss calculations, design suggestions with colour samples, and expert advice every step of the way. For inspiration follow their Instagram and order a free brochure.
