Delta 60 Conversion Factors



Most modern systems run at Delta 60

ie the temperature into the radiator is 80 and the desired room temperature is 20


80 minus 20 = 60  that is why we quote at Delta 60



A recent customer had a situation where is temperature into the radiator was 75 and he wanted his room to be 20

so he needed Delta 55 figures

as shown below - he needed to up his radiators by a factor of 1.11

ie if the requirement would of been for 10 sections of radiator in a normal situation then he needed to go upto 11 sections of radiator - this would ensure he ended up with the room temperature of 20

If you need any more help on this matter then please call Viv, Dan or Becky

Ground Source Heat Pumps - Delta 30, Delta 50 and Delta 60

Ground Source Heat Pumps



If you need any help with the information below please call our office 7 days a week and we will help you.


If you are installing a ground source heat pump system then we recommend reducing our Delta 60 figures by 20%. This is to compensate for the lower water temperatures that these operate at. Cast Iron Radiators have an operating characteristic of retaining the heat for longer periods which makes them ideal for use with Ground Source Heating Systems.


Some ground source suppliers are recomending that you work to Delta 30 figures -
To work out Delta 30 from our website Delta 60 figures - you just need to add an extra 30%

So for example if our website is telling you that you need a 10 section radiator - then if you are installing in a Delta 30 heating system you would need to use a 13 section radiator.



What is delta 60?

The figures that we quote on our website are at delta 60 - this is basically 80 degrees C output from most central heating boilers versus the 20 degrees C room temperature that we all want to achieve in our homes. The difference between the two is 80-20 = 60 ie Delta 60


Some boilers have a lower output temperature - if this is the case you may need our Delta 50 figures, we can provide these for all of our radiators if you call our office.
