What is the best material for a radiator?

FAQ banner image

Aluminium is widely considered to be the best material for a radiator.

As a material, aluminium offers excellent conduction properties, enabling radiators to heat up quickly and transport heat around the space rapidly as well.

Aluminium radiators also provide the highest possible BTU output and have superb responsiveness, so tend to be the most expensive available type as a result.

Our Why Buy Aluminium Radiators blog offers a more in-depth look at aluminium radiators, and there’s analysis of all different types of radiators in the BestHeating Radiator Buying Guide.
