Are you Looking to get your radiator replaced by a qualified radiator installer? Well quite simply you have found the right place for all of your radiator needs! Everyone has had a time in there lives when a radiators started to leak, desperately needing replacing and you have to get it sorted as quickly as possible.
A radiator is the most basic of home heating devices - it quite simply radiates heat from what is usually a hot water based heating system. For such a simple device, radiators bring so much warmth and comfort to every single home they are fitted to - and as amazing as radiators are, when they fail a radiator can be your worst nightmare leaking gallons of water over your carpets and your house!
Another key thing you may find is when a room does not have a radiator, it feels cold and empty no matter how many of your loved items you have in them, or your hallway just as you leave your lovely warm radiator heated lounge into the cold hallway - it makes me shiver just thinking back to when we moved into our houes and we walked into the house - however since then we have fitted a simple, small radiator and our whole house is now nice and warm as only a good boiler and set of radiators!
It can be more difficult then first though to install your own radiators, although with the right research and a technical mind you can install your radiators just as good as the professionals! The basic rule to remember when installing a radiator is to empty the water from the system, take the old radiator off, replace it with the new radiator and refill the system. Refilling the system involve bleeding every rdiator in your home and topping it up, this will need to be repeated several times in order to adequantly fill the system.
Installing a new radiator into a new position does require more considerdation then just replacing the old one. A new radiator can be fitted anywhere along the flow and return of the central heating pipes! Although extra care should be taken to ensure not to diminish the boilers output to your existing radiators.
Before hanging a new radiator a good tip is to place the radiator on the floor in the position you wish to hang it. Using a pencil draw a line on the wall along the top of the radiator, this is where the bottom of the radiator should meet once hung on the wall. Place the brackets on the back of the radiator, measure the distance and transfer this measurement to the wall by drawing corresponding marks.
Radiators come in all shapes, sizes and colours double radiators are a popular choice for warming the home. Double radiators include a double bar on the inside as opposed to a single heated bar, double radiators ultimately release more heat! It is also a good idea to purchase a thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) for your radiators. A TRV allows you to control the temperature of each individual radiator, for instance if you know that a certain room in your home will not be used at any time, you can simply turn off or adjust to low the radiator in that room by adjusting the TRV located on the radiator itself.
