RADIATORS 

Whatever your requirements, whether you are renovating a Victorian home or creating a contemporary living space there is a radiator that will fit your requirements.  From the 'buy by the column' cast iron radiator for the Victorian look or the ultra-modern radiator, there are so many styles and sizes that there is probably a radiator that exactly suits your needs. 

From April 2002, changes in the Building Regulations effect how your installer makes changes to your heating controls. In order to conform to current Building Regulations, thermostatic radiator valves should be fitted, at least, to bedroom radiators. Go to Building Regulations information

There may be occasions when there is a build up of air in your system.  This may be evidenced by your radiators not getting very hot, particularly toward the top of the radiator, or you may hear a gurgling noise in your system.  This may be resolved by bleeding the radiators to let out any air and repressurising the system as necessary..  Go to 'How to Bleed Your Radiators'

Sometimes, excess air will cause 'sludge' in the system. Sludge is a 'mud' resulting from the reaction between the water and oxygen in your system and the steel in the radiators which can build up over a period of time and cause circulation and flow problems.  

  1. Some radiators are completely of partially cold

  2. Radiators need frequent bleeding

  3. Repeated pump failures/corrosion deposits in pump casing

  4. Strange and unpleasant noises from the boiler

Powerflushing may resolve these problems.Go to Powerflushing Information
