A dual fuel kit is used to convert a central heating towel rail or radiator into a dual fuel one, providing the beneficial functionality of heating your towel rail using central heating in the winter, and the electric element in the summer. Not only is this dual fuel functionality better for the environment, as well as kinder to your wallet (because you aren’t firing up the boiler in summer to dry a few bath towels) it also makes for better boiler health and control over your homes heating. Included in your kit is an element, 2 x t-pieces and a pair of angled valves. The t-piece acts as an extension which allows you to insert the electric element into the towel rail as well as attach the valves. The use of 2nd t-piece provided is optional, for those who want to create symmetry with the valves on both sides of the rail.

Colour

Chrome is a great colour to create some shine, without the need for a bold bright colour. With a naturally reflective polished finish, it can be great for smaller rooms to give the illusion of extra space. Chrome also goes with pretty much every colour of radiator or towel rail so if you want to play it safe, play it chrome.

The Element

The Talus digital element gives you flexibility and control over your heating system. The thermostatic heating system allows the radiator temperature range to be selected from 45-65°C, in 5°C increments. The LED lights indicate the temperature setting, for at-a-glance checking.

Operation:

Standby Mode - When the element is power connected, it will default to standby mode. This will be indicated by a blue light on the power button.

Heating Mode - Press the Power button to enter heating mode, a red light will appear on the button. Then use the T button to select the temperature, the lightes at the top will indicate the chosen temperature. 1st light = 45°C, 2nd light = 50°C, 3rd light = 55°C etc.

Boost/Program Mode - There are 3 boost setting available:

  • Boost 2hr - shown by a red light on the clock button. The element is turned on for a 2 hour period and the temperature is automatically controlled as to not exceed 65°C. After the 2 hour period the element will return to standby.
  • B1 Program - shown by a blue light on the clock button. The element enters Boost 2hr (above). After the 2 hour period the element will return to standby for 22 hours. This schedule then repeats.
  • B2 Program - shown by a red light on the clock button. The element enters Boost 2hr (above). After the 2 hour period the element will return to standby for 10 hours, then Boost 2hr is activated again, followed by 10hrs in standby. This schedule then repeats.

Error Mode - if the liquid temperature drops below -10°C or above 85°C then the element will enter error mode, this is shown by slow flashing red lights. If this happens, please switch off the power source and contact and electrictian.

Frost Protection - If the liquid drops below 7°C the element will turn on and behin to heat


Full Installation Instructions and User Guide will be provided with the element.

Watts & BTUs (British Thermal Units) Explained

What is a Watt?

Watts are our main unit of energy/power in the UK, commonly associated with lightbulbs and Home Energy performance certificates (EPCs).

What is a BTU?

BTUs are the unit of measurement used to portray a radiators heat output and a rooms heating requirement. 1 Watt is equal to 3.41 BTUs.

Why are they important?

We buy radiators to heat our homes, right? So, we need a way of knowing if a radiator is powerful enough to heat the room that we are shopping for - Watts and BTUs provide us with a value that makes its easier to compare radiators and ultimately choose the right one for our heating requirement.

Need help figuring out how much heat your room needs?

Our fast and easy-to-use BTU calculator can help you:

  • Work out a heating requirement value (in BTUs & Watts) for your room
  • Show you in-stock radiator recommendations that can fulfil this heat requirement
Try our room heating calculator

Delta (Δ) Ratings Explained

What is a Delta (Δ) Rating?

When discussing heat outputs, the Delta rating is the difference between the temperature of the water inside the heating system and the desired temperature of the room.

What does the value represent?

In simple terms, this value is about heat loss. Heating a room only works, if the radiator output exceeds the heat loss of the room.

We use this calculation to make it easy to choose a radiator that will have a heat output that exceeds the heat loss of the room when connected to your heating system type.

If you don't know the room heat loss, you can use our calculator to find out.

What Delta Rating should I use?

  • Δ50 = Gas or oil boiler with a flow temperature of around 75°C and a return temperature of around 65°C.
  • Δ30 = Low temperature systems e.g heat pumps.
