What's included in this service?
From replacing standard radiator valves with new TRV’s (thermostatic radiator valves), to fixing leaking and faulty valves, Serviceteam are here to help.
Why consider replacing your radiator valves?
- TRV’s sense the air temperature around them and changes the flow of hot water through your radiator giving individual temperature control to each room and radiator. So you can select a preferred temperature for each room which can also lead to reduced heating costs as you only use the energy needed.
How much will it cost?
- As part of an independent visit, we charge£140 + Vat to supply and replace your thermostatic radiator valves to the 1st radiator. And £50 + Vat for each additional radiator required.
- e.g. changing the radiator valves of three radiators would cost(£140 + £50 + £50 = £240 + Vat).
- If we are already on site completing other works, please use our request a quote link for a personal offer.
- Discount a 10% discount is applied to the price of each TRV if booked along with any other gas or heating service.
- For more information about thermostatic radiator valves you should contact our office and speak to one of our maintenance advisors.
What's not included in this service?
- Any congestion zone, ULEZ or parking charges - This will be added at cost to the final bill (unless a parking permit for the duration of the visit is provided).
Q: Does the thermostatic radiator really work?
A: Thermostatic radiator valve is a self-regulating valve that works on the principle of changing the flow of hot water into a radiator, however when the temperature inside the room changes a capsule in the valve head either contract or expands which helps to move the pin in the valve body.
Q: How to increase the lifespan of a thermostatic radiator valve?
A: To increase the life span of thermostatic radiators valve you must have to turn it off completely for a few times a year that will help to reduce the chances of failure. Contact service team for a quick repair and quality service.
Q: How to fix a radiator that won’t heat up?
A: Sometimes it is due to one or maybe both of the valves are closed, OR the radiator valve may be turned off. You can fix it by making it sure that both left and right valves are open and if there is a radiator valve make sure it is opened.
Q: How long do thermostatic radiator valve last?
A: Well, it depends upon the quality of a thermostatic radiator. An ordinary TRVs with oil or wax fixed sensor tends to last about 15 years. However, some of the quality TRVs brands did last beyond that.
