You can make batteries more efficient yourself

Winter is on its way, so it's time to make sure that your home is warm and that heating costs are within reasonable limits. For example, it is important to know how to make sure that radiators heat up quickly and give off heat well.

OBOZ.UA asked professionals for advice on this matter. They will be especially useful for those who have individual heating and who adjust the temperature depending on whether they are at home or outside. Experts, of course, say that buying a new boiler and upgrading radiators can help. But it is not necessary to incur such costs. There are simpler solutions.

Remove all unnecessary things

First of all, make sure that your radiators are not covered by any objects that could affect their overall efficiency. Laundry laid out to dry or decorative shields impede efficient heat transfer, so it's best to remove them.

Get rid of dust

A layer of dust not only looks unattractive but can also insulate heat from the battery. Therefore, regular cleaning is essential to maintain battery efficiency.

Balance the operation of radiators

Balancing means adjusting the radiator valves to allow them to warm up evenly and at the same rate. For example, cold areas may indicate the presence of air in the system that needs to be removed. You can contact professionals for this service.

Purchase a radiator fan

Radiator fans are small electrical appliances that are installed on the heating system and blow heated air away from it. This helps to increase the efficiency of heat distribution throughout the room. It spreads faster over a larger area and helps to heat the room in a short time and more evenly.
