MHS Radiators launches efficient fan assisted Planair range

MHS Radiators has launched the Planair range of fan assisted radiators, which are designed to provide efficient heating and cooling when used on low temperature systems. 

Supplied with either left- or right-handed connections upon request, the new radiators measure 621mm high and come in three widths of 780mm, 1030mm or 1220mm with outputs of up to 1,966W at a flow temperature of 45°C. Planair radiators have a 1.25mm steel casing, which is powder-coated in RAL 9016 Traffic White, and a fixed aluminium top grille. 

All models utilise a high-output heat exchanger manufactured from composite copper pipes and aluminium fins, which allows the operating temperatures to be reduced, improving the efficiencies of air and ground source heat pumps. Plus, when set to cool, the heat pump will pump chilled water through the heat exchanger. This then cools the air as the fan draws it in from the room over the heat exchanger. The cooled air is then dispersed back into the room, reducing the temperature.

Consumers can choose from three control options to suit a project’s specific requirements. ‘Display’ uses an intuitive touch display for heating and cooling, whereas the ‘Thermostat’ control method operates with a conventional or smart thermostatic head. Finally, the ‘Electromechanical’ models are controlled via a room thermostat or Building Management System (0-10V signal).

Alex Bradley, commercial director at MHS Radiators, said: “As heat pumps become more popular on the road to net zero, it is vital that radiators can still be fitted alongside sustainable technologies. We’ve introduced the Planair as an efficient means of using the heating and cooling credentials of heat pumps. These fan assisted radiators operate at low water temperatures without compromising on comfort or performance, helping end users to reduce their emissions and fuel bills.”
