Radiator Replacement London

A gas central heating system requires several elements to distribute warmth efficiently throughout your home. Among them are radiators, being the most common way to heat a home. Individual room temperature can be controlled by a TRV (Thermostatic Radiator Valve – replace faulty thermostatic valves) to give a cosy feel to a room. Radiators can last for years, providing they are maintained regularly, and the correct heating system inhibitor is used to reduce scale and corrosion. Also, a periodic powerflush will ensure optimum radiator performance.

If you’re experiencing lukewarm radiators or cold spots that give uneven heating to your radiators, it’s time to investigate the cause. You might be able to pinpoint the cause by answering these questions:

  • When was the system installed?
  • When was the last time an inhibitor was introduced to the system?
  • When was the system last power flushed?

If the answers are 15 years + never and never, then that’s probably why the radiators aren’t performing to their maximum. If there isn’t any inhibitor in a system, then corrosion will happen, with scale building up. Both could be the cause of radiator cold spots as they prevent water circulation.

It’s essential to keep your heating system in top condition by regularly checking and maintaining it. One crucial thing to keep an eye on is whether or not an inhibitor has been introduced to the system. If it has been a long time since this was done or it has never been completed, then it’s likely that corrosion and scale buildup has occurred, leading to poor water circulation and cold radiator spots. Additionally, the system may need a power flush, which can only be done by a professional. If you’re experiencing radiator issues or want to ensure your heating system is in good shape, make sure to get help from our reputable plumbing and heating engineers in London. We provide installation, repair, replacement, and maintenance services for gas and plumbing systems in your home or business.

The heating is always turned off during the summer months, which sometimes causes air to be trapped in the system (airlock), again causing radiators to be warm at the bottom and cold/tepid at the top. This can be simply rectified by ‘bleeding’ each radiator in turn by the radiator bleed valve situated on the top of the radiator, either on the right or left side of it. When they have been bled, the radiators should heat uniformly throughout the property.

If not, and the problem still exists, then it’s probably the scale and sludge that’s preventing circulation. If this is the case, the boiler usually stays on for longer than is necessary as it struggles to reach the temperature on the thermostat, unfortunately increasing your energy costs!

A system powerflush will cleanse the system of scale and sludge, allowing water to circulate freely to each radiator. Also, installing a magnetic system filter (after a powerflush) will capture any water-borne particles from entering the internal workings of your boiler or clogging the radiators once more.

Look for signs of corrosion at the bottom of the radiator. The enamel would have blistered off, and the bare rusty metal beneath exposed. If there are signs of weeping in these corroded areas – install a new radiator NOW, before the radiator bursts and floods the room! A central heating check will help identify any potential issues.
