Experts in restoration of cast iron radiators
The impressive thermal qualities of traditional cast iron radiators have been known for years, and ECORAD has now developed a simple way to integrate these pieces of our architectural heritage into modern buildings.
With the innovative electrification process developed by ECORAD, the beauty and elegance of old cast iron heaters are now combined with distinctive advantages in terms of efficiency and environmental protection.

RADIATORS - Electric, Hydronic and Steam
Whether it's your customer's or from our inventory, all radiators follow the same process. Each radiator is disassembled and reassembled with new seals. The interior is cleaned and the old paint is stripped with a soft abrasive that does not affect the cast iron. Most of cast iron radiators can be converted into independent electric units.
120, 208, 220, 240, 277, 347 Volt
Heating capacity up to 5000Watts/17 050 Btu
Managed by thermostats or intelligent system
10 years limited guarantee
Prices from 695$
An electrified radiator is as easy to install as a baseboard heater. Please note, heating capacity is a function of the radiator size.
HYDRONIC AND STEAM RADIATORS
Fully restored and sized to your needs
Water pressure paint removed
Inputs, outputs and diameter requested
Ready to be installed
Prices from 475$
RADIANT VS CONVECTION
Convection heating can generate a 7.5°C variance in temperature between the upper and lower levels of a room, due to the air circulation patterns inherent to convection, whereas that difference would only be of 1.2°C with radiant heating! Thus, you can set the temperature a few degrees lower to obtain the same room temperature.
Our environmental benefits are not only limited to recycling used radiators: radiators reduce by 24% your energy consumption and significantly reduce CO2 emissions. In addition, ECORAD reuses antifreeze recovered from the automotive industry and gets rid of paint residue according to environmentally friendly practices.
ELECTRIC VS OIL/GAS
The most efficient gas furnaces can only offer an output of 85%, meaning there is a 15% heat loss through the chimney; however, converted electric-based radiators offer 100% efficiency. By eliminating the boiler, power costs are greatly reduced.
With the pending decrease in the cost of electricity during non-peak hours, radiant heat reveals itself as a intelligent economic choice. The radiators capacity to store energy through their thermal mass, allows users to adjust thermostats accordingly. Radiators also absorbe energy when exposed to the sun (maximize energy with our charcoal finish).
