-- The most energy efficient valves areThermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) (http://www.discountedheating.co.uk/shop/acatalog/Thermostatic_Radiator_Valves_TRVs.html)
which are a very popular choice in homes across Britain. These are valves that can be fitted instead of the radiator valves you may already have and they are recommended as an energy saving product. TRVs allow you to set individual heating settings for each individual room they are fitted in, so when the heating turns on the radiators only get as hot as was pre-determined. The valves then automatically turn themselves off and maintain the desired room temp until the heating is turned off again. TRVs are a useful money saving device; with your heating system wasting less energy through unnecessary heat, the gas bill can be reduced in turn!Manual valves
function in much the same way, however, they do not have a thermostatic element. This means that the temperature will be the same in each room and radiator and instead the temperature is controlled by a thermostat on your heating system. For this reason, the Energy Saving Trust recommends the use of TRVs instead.
