November 1st marks National Radiator Day, the one day of the year on which you should be showing some love, appreciation and tenderness to your home radiator. But what on earth is National Radiator Day all about?
#LoveYourRadiator is a new campaign that has been launched by the Manufacturers’ Association of Radiators and Convectors – MARC. The campaign asks for consumers to take a selfie with their radiator and share that picture on Twitter using the hashtag – #LoveYourRadiator.
National Radiator Day takes place each year on November 1st in order to cast some much needed light onto the amazing work that your radiators and central heating do every winter in keeping you warm, dry and cosy when the weather starts to turn.
According to MARC there are 190 million radiators being used in UK households every day, and as the nation’s favourite heat emitters why on earth shouldn’t there be a day that celebrates their longevity, durability and style?
The last 40 years or so has seen a weird and wonderful transformation for radiators, so it’s fitting that they have a day to bask in their warmth-giving glory.
Isaac Occhipinti of MARC says: “The 1970’s witnessed the introduction of central heating systems with cast iron and steel radiators becoming common place in UK homes, the radiators of the 1980’s were merely a functional product that had a job to do. The 1990’s saw a boom in TV shows like ‘Changing Rooms’ that encouraged us to make over our homes and the humble radiator was more often than not regulated behind a radiator cover usually made of MDF. During the 2000’s the radiator has moved from being a simple heat emitter, to an integral part of the overall room design. It is no longer necessary to fit your furniture around your radiator the radiator can now be installed to suit the room, horizontal, vertical or even curved. Over the last few years this has led to an explosion in style and colours.”
