There are many problems that your radiators can develop over time.
For example :
- They can corrode and start leaking
- The valves can become stiff preventing them from opening or closing properly.
- Air can get into the system and stop the radiator heating up fully.
These are the most common issues that you are most likely to experience, and we can help fix these problems and get your heating back to working efficiently as it should.
Why get a new radiator?
Older radiators are often coated with many layers of paint and they don't work as efficiently as modern radiators do. The means you could be spending more money than necessary on heating your home. A new radiator can reduce your heating bills considerably, as well as heating the house a lot more efficiently. TRVs (Thermostatic Radiator Valves)
One thing we recommend if you are trying to cut costs, is to have TRVs installed on your radiators. You would select the desired temperature for the room it's in, and once your room has reached that temperature the radiator will shut down, allowing your boiler to focus on heating up other parts of the house that maybe take longer.
Depending on your heating and hot water demand there are different types of condensing boilers that are available, please contact us for any questions you might have regarding the main boiler types.
A power flush is simply a process that gives your central heating system a thorough internal clean and usually improves the central heating system’s performance, this can lead to lower gas bills.
Over time some heating systems may experience poor circulation resulting in lukewarm radiators, poor hot water, increased noise and sludge build up. By ‘powerflushing’ your heating system, the sludge and built up residue will be removed via inline magnetic filtration, it will make your system work more efficiently.
