A journey into the history of the radiator!

John Horley Palmer, President of the Bank of England was quite aware in the 19th Century that the future was ‘heating up’ he went down in history as the first man who applied “steam induced heating” in a home environment.
Franz San Galli, a Russian Businessman of Polish origin was the inventor of the system which stands closest to the modern heating equipment of today, In 1855 he couldn’t imaginine that what he invented would grace the walls of many homes with ultra modern lines several centuries later. However today, the artistic work of Turkish Designers push the boundaries of our imagination are applauded throughout the World.
As we all know, radiators are vehicle to tranfer thermal energy from one medium to another either with the purpose of heating or cooling. We see radiators used today not only in homes but any indoors area that needs heating. The central heating systems, hot water or steam are usually fired with a boiler and the heat circulated to radiators by a circulating pump. (????)
Historically the radiator system was widely used for heating as far back as the Roman Empire. Appereantly indoor places were heated by a system called “hypo caust” in which hot air generated by heating the water which was lead inside the walls of a building and underground (under floor). A similar “Ondol System “ was also used in Ancient Korea, in the east.
It‘s a known fact that in Ephesos which was populated with about 200,000 people around the 2nd and 1st Centuries B.C. radiator systems were used in homes. Also discovered in archeological burial grounds around the Dardanelles in Parion a villa was equipped with a radiator system 2,700 years ago. Isaac Pasha Palace in Agrı is also equipped with an ancient heating system. Steam based systems were not fully developed until the 1830s. In 1863, two inventors Joseph Hanson and Robert Briggs developed a type of cast radiator which had iron rods bolted to a cast base. In 1872, Nelson H. Bundy came up with the “Bundy Ring” which is quite the archetypical cast iron radiator that has been popular until recently. However widespread use of radiators did not occure before the 20th Century. Epidemics of the 19th Century brought the hygene and personal comfort concerns to the mainstream. Out of necessity water and gas pipes advanced rapidly developing what we know today as the sealed heating system. The Industrial Revolution made it possible for the technology to advance quickly. Mass production has made radiators much more affordable and many homeowners began taking advantage. Yet, even by th 60s and 70s central heating and radiators had not entered every home. By the early days of 21st Century radiators are commonly used in almost every home in modern cities.
Carisa Originality
What‘s very intriguing after all this time is that, radiators are finally seen as an aesthetic addition to the home not just a means of keeping warm In modern times many models are first displayed at Expos around the World and originality is quickly greeted with awe. Carisa‘s most recent creations are always the center of attention and attraction in the biggest exhibitions in the industry.
