Radiator Needs Replacing

Why a plumber should replace your radiator

While radiators are one of the more durable and long-lasting fixtures in your home, they don’t last forever. Your radiators may have been in your home for decades and never once received the maintenance they need. And older models could be costing you money on your heating bills because they’re less efficient.

If you want to install new radiators, there are a few things you’ll need to consider:

  • Can your boiler support additional or newer radiators?
  • What type of radiator do you need?
  • Which radiator will look the best in your home?

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why are my radiators making noise when the heating comes on?This could be because of trapped air so try bleeding your radiators.
  • The radiator I want has not got enough output for my room, what can I do?You could try a new model with more columns, double or even triple rows of elements to increase output within the same space. Or you may need to install another radiator.
  • What are electric/ dual fuel radiators?A dual fuel radiator is connected to your central heating system and your electrics so it can be heated either by the central heating system, or electrically via the heating element.
  • Who will install my radiators?A qualified professional should always install radiators.
  • What should I use to secure the radiator to the wall?The standard way of securing a radiator to the wall is to use metal fixings. They should come with your radiator.
  • Do cast iron radiators take longer to warm up than standard radiators?Yes. They also tend to stay warm for longer after the central heating has been turned off.
  • Do my radiators need venting, and how do I do it?If your radiators aren't heating up properly, they may need venting – or 'bleeding' – to release trapped air. Read how to bleed your radiators here.
  • My radiator bleed valve is stuck. What can I do?Try lubricating the valve with WD40, if it still won't move you may need to consult a professional.
