Which side is flow on a radiator?
Likewise, which side of a radiator is the inlet?
Standard radiators (commonly known as compact radiators) typically have side valve inlets. These are located at the bottom of the radiator too but tend to allow access from the side only (horizontally).
Furthermore, which way does the water flow through a radiator? Water comes into the radiator from the upper hose at the left of the car, flows through the radiator from left to right, and is picked up at the lower radiator hose on the right side of the vehicle.
Just so, does it matter which side thermostat go on a radiator?
Many modern homes will have TRVs – Thermostatic Radiator Valves – attached to most of the radiators on the opposite side from the lockshield valves. A TRV should always be fitted to the inlet on the radiator and the LSV to the outlet.
Which way does water flow through a central heating radiator?
With a simple central heating system, each radiator has a basic screw valve at the bottom. If you turn the screw down, you switch the radiator off: the valve closes and hot water flows straight through the bottom pipe, bypassing the upper part of the radiator altogether.
