Radiators are generally tough pieces of home heating equipment and don’t require replacing too often. But they can suffer from wear and tear or an accident may cause damage that can’t be repaired. If that’s the case, then a radiator replacement is what’s needed.
Replacing a radiator is a job that should be done by a professional because there are lots of potential issues to cover. From choosing the right type of radiator for your system to fixing it in the best way for the walls of your home, there are lots of elements to put together to ensure you get the best replacement radiator.
Once the right type of radiator is selected, we can then start the replacement process. This involves removing any thermostatic radiator valves or other methods to turn the radiator up and down. Next the radiator is drained of all the water – this needs to be done carefully as it could be hot if the system has been used recently.
Then the existing pipework can be assessed. Ideally, the new radiator will be the same size as the existing one so the pipework will still fit but if it isn’t, we can look at any adjustments needed.
Once the radiator is fitted, we can look at any corrosion inhibitors that may be needed. This helps to reduce the build-up of sludge in the system which can lead to corrosion and deterioration of the radiators and other parts of the system.
