When it comes to changing or adding new radiators in your kitchen it is essential that you not only find a good looking radiator that meets your aesthetic needs but one that will heat your space efficiently.
A BTU (British Thermal Unit) is the measurement used to represent the amount of energy it takes to heat one pound of water (about a pint) by one degree Farenheit.
BTU is the standard heat measurement when it comes to selecting radiators and you should see it featured on the product specification of any good radiator.
