Oxyvent Can Get More Heat From Your Radiators
All the radiators in your home should heat uniformly from top to base. Most householders can relate to radiators not heating properly especially the ones furthest from the boiler.
It is important to understand that even in the worst scenario the top section of the radiator will heat but if the lower centre section is cold then your system is inefficient.
Do this simple test at home. Switch on your heating for one hour and then check all the radiators. If the lower half of the radiator is much cooler than the top then your system is inefficient.
When a radiators is not heating uniformly this means that the water in not pumped through all the channels in the radiator panel. This is caused by a number of factors, air, poor flow rate, and the most important one high delta T.
To get your radiators heating Oxyvent will pump 3 litres of water per minute through each radiator compared to just one litre previously. The heated water will be pumped down through all the channels in the radiator heating them uniformly from top to base.
Just to make it very clear power flushing or balancing the system will not heat all the radiators uniformly, It is much more complex than that. Since the invention of radiators nothing has been done to improve the flow of water through the channels in the radiator panel until Oxyvent resolved it.
What can the Oxyvent Tank do for you?
You will feel more comfortable in your home with more powerful radiant heat
Save 30% on your fuel bills
No more bleeding of radiators
You will not have to balance your radiators as the Oxyvent System is self-balancing
Abundance of domestic hot water as the cylinder will heat uniformly from top to bottom.
The boiler will operate in full condensing mode as the boilers temperature is reduced to 60°C.
As the temperature at ground level is higher Thermostatic radiator valves will be more active giving better control over your room temperature.
What is balancing? Balancing is taking water from a radiator that is working perfectly well and giving it to a radiator that will not heat up.
Balancing is done by closing down the lock shield valve with a pliers to a minimum opening position. Obviously the flow of water is greatly reduced and the surface of the radiator will cool significantly, especially at the lower centre lower section. Test show that a balanced radiators power output is halved every 2 minutes then increase and is halved again. This fluctuation in temperature gives poor thermal comfort to the occupants and waste fuel.
• Balancing increases thermal shock
• Increases noises
• Increases detla T
If you have to balance some radiators to get other radiators to heat then you need an Oxyvent Tank. The Oxyvent system needs no balancing every valve is left fully open.

The most common setting for room stats is 21°C. this setting is needed to bring the room to a near comfortable temperature.
With the Oxyvent Tank installed the room stats can be reduced down to 19°C without losing your comfort. Experts have said that by reducing the room temperature stat by 1°C you can save 10% in fuel.
If you reduce your room stat to 19°C and feel uncomfortable then you need an Oxyvent Tank to increase Thermal Comfort.
