Do you want to control your radiators so that they are more efficient and save you money?

Installing a thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) on all your radiators will help you to do just that.

Research performed at Salford University on behalf of BEAMA Heating Controls concluded that adding a room thermostat and TRVs to your central heating system could save up to 40%, most of the saving was attributed to TRVs.

What is a TRV?

A Thermostatic Radiator Valve, or TRV, is a device that can be fitted to your radiator to help regulate the flow of water from your boiler to your radiator.TRV’s contains sensors that measure the air temperature of the room where the radiator is fitted. When a room reaches the desired temperature the TRV will shut the radiator off so that no more hot water flows to it. When the temperature falls it will turn it on again.

Can a TRV save me money?

TRVs are a simple and very cost-effective way to better manage your central heating and save money on heating bills by becoming more energy efficient.

TRV tips

  • Twist the knob every so often to avoid the TRV sticking.
  • Try not to bash them when vacuuming as a damaged TRV won’t give the correct readings.
  • Try not to cover them with curtains or block them with furniture. A TRV needs a free flow of air to the sensor to read the correct room temperature

Used in conjunction with other central heating devices such as room thermostats and timers, TRVs can substantially reduce your household energy consumption.

In addition to saving money, installing a TRV is an immediate and practical way to reduce your carbon footprint, a valuable contribution to helping climate change.

At Palace Plumber’s always encourage responsible energy consumption and champion the installation of renewable energy products in as many new installations as possible.

How does a TRV work?

The TRV is fitted to your pipework that leads into your radiator. A thermostatic head senses the air temperature around the unit and subsequently opens and closes a valve.

As the valve opens it allows more hot water from the boiler to flow into the radiator, enabling the radiator to output more heat. As the valve closes and water flow into the radiator is restricted the less heat it produces.

Customers Love Palace Plumbers


I've used other local plumbing companies in the past but will continue with Palace Plumbers from now on. The office staff are very helpful and the engineers have been on time every day to install my new boiler.


Taz, the plumber who visited, was very courteous and managed to fix my shower and toilet in just over an hour. The time went slightly beyond the hour but I wasn't charged any extra for this.

Henry Fullerton VERIFIED

Boiler repair was carried out swiftly. It's been 2 weeks and my heating system is working better than ever. I've already booked up my annual service for later in the year. 2 thumbs up.
