5 Common Radiator Repair Problems

Leaking radiator – Finding a damp patch on your carpet or a puddle developing beneath your radiator is usually the first sign that your radiator is leaking. This is commonly because of a leaking valve, spindle or pipe joint but could also be corrosion of the radiator itself.

Single radiator not working – This could be because the lock-shield valve is closed

Two or more radiators not working – If you open a tap and discover that water is only getting warm it could be down to a number of issues. The most likely culprit is the blending valve, which is responsible for mixing hot water from the cylinder with cold water from the mains to achieve the desired water temperature at your hot water outlets.

Radiator getting too hot – If you notice that the water pressure to your taps seems to be lower than normal it could be that one of the filters is blocked. It’s also worth checking that the mains water stopcock hasn’t been isolated.

Radiator hot at the bottom and cold at the top – If you notice that the water pressure to your taps seems to be lower than normal it could be that one of the filters is blocked. It’s also worth checking that the mains water stopcock hasn’t been isolated.

Radiator Installation

Many of our customers approach us to install new radiators after moving into a new home. It’s often the case that the existing radiators need updating or replacing. Modern radiators are highly energy efficient, compared to their predecessors which means considerable saving on your energy bills.

Choosing the best radiator for your home can be confusing. Column or panel radiator? Single or double convector? single or double panel? closed top and sides or open? If you need advice on the best type of radiator to compliment your lifestyle and heating system why not give us a call. We can arrange a home visit to survey your heating system and provide you with a quotation for your new radiator installation.

Which type of radiator?

Modern radiators are highly energy efficient, compared to their older counterparts which means considerable saving on your energy bills.

Horizontal or vertical – What wall space do you have available for your radiator? How should it fit with your current aesthetic? Do you want it to be visible?

Size – What size room do you need to heat? Do you already have radiators in this room? How much heat should your radiator emit to heat the room?

Position – Where do you intend to position your radiator? Is it a like-for-like replacement or will pipework modification or extra pipework be necessary?

Panel, column or convector – Would you prefer an old-style column radiator or would a panel radiator more suitable? What about convectors? You may have come across Type 11, Type 21 or Type 22 when researching. This refers to the number of panels and convectors on a modern radiator.

Single or double panel – Another consideration is whether you prefer a single or double panel radiator. Single panel radiators are more streamlined, and don’t stick out from the wall so far, whereas double panel radiators emit more heat.
