Economy: Runtal Radiators Significantly Increased Heat Transfer

Americans have long been accustomed to relatively inexpensive fuel. This situation has created an environment in which the “cost” of a heating system is usually only considered as the initial purchase and installation. However, as fuel costs, indoor pollutants, and system maintenance costs continue to increase, Americans are becoming increasingly concerned with the true cost of a comfortable indoor environment. Runtal’s unique ?attened tube design, combined with a rugged all welded steel construction allows for signi?cantly increased heat transfer. In addition, a well designed Runtal system allows for a smaller boiler and pump, and usually less piping. All this adds up to a “green”, comfortable, attractive, and efficient heating system for surprisingly little more than the old fashioned kind.
