Radiator Installation Services in London, UK

In a standard gas central heating system, you need a handful of radiators to distribute the heat to the different rooms of your house. The radiator is the last step when it comes to delivering heated air to you, so it has to be working at full capacity to get its job done. Radiators can last for quite some time, but expert installation and repair is still a key component.

Common Radiator Issues

Radiators perform a very important function in your home, and there are many different issues that can arise as it works away distributing heat. Some of the more common problems include individual radiators not getting hot, air inside the radiator, loud noises coming from the radiator, a rusty radiator, leaking radiator valves or a loose radiator. Not all of these are grounds for replacement or a new installation, but they certainly meet the criteria for repair. If you notice any issues with your radiators and aren’t sure if it is serious or not, always err on the side of caution and call for professional help.

If your radiators aren’t behaving correctly and find that opening and closing the valves seems to make no difference whatsoever, it could be the valves that are causing the issue and it may be time to replace them. We can change the valves for you throughout your home, and fit efficient thermostatic valves that give you more control over the heat in individual rooms, saving you money on your heating bills.

Improving System Performance

When your radiators are on they should be giving out a consistent level of heat (unless you’ve fitted thermostatic valves to any of them to adjust the temperatures individually), and be a similar temperature across the whole body of the radiator.

If some of your radiators are only ever lukewarm, or are warm at the top but not at the bottom, there’s something wrong. Call us and we will come round and take a look, bleed them, balance them, get rid of any cold spots and set them all up so they heat your rooms nice and evenly. And if any of the valves are no longer working properly, we’ll replace them for you, fitting efficient thermostatic valves that give you more control over the heat.

When Should I Consider Replacement?

Most radiators have a long lifespan, but there does come a time when they must be replaced. As radiators get older, they become less efficient and end up costing you more money. When your heating bills continue to rise and the repair bills add up, replacing your radiators with newer, more efficient models is the way to go. Your local engineer will usually let you know if replacement seems like the wisest choice, and it’s best to listen to his suggestion.

Radiators are not all the same. Far from it. The way they are designed has a dramatic effect on their heat output, and it is this that enables differing amounts of heat to be delivered by two radiators that might seem to occupy more or less the same amount of wall space.

If you are refurbishing a property, or are just tired of living in a cold home and thinking of replacing the radiators, give us a call. We’ll come and have a look, bring our tape measures, and help you to calculate the size and output (in kW/btu) of radiators required for each of your rooms, taking into account the room dimensions and capacities for heat loss.

Once you know what output you need in each room, you can then choose your actual radiators based on aesthetics and budget. Again, we’ll give you all the advice you need.

Professional Replacement or DIY?

When it comes to the various components of your central heating system, the radiators are some of the least complex to install, but most people still prefer to have a professional’s touch. If you’re one of these people, look for a service provider that has extensive experience with central heating systems and radiators in particular.

If you need a new system, we can install, repair, replace, tune up or overhaul any kind of central heating radiator. This includes vintage cast iron sectionals and their modern replicas, cool-looking designer models that are really thermal sculptures, and fantastic bathroom towel radiators that give you a lovely warm wrap when climbing out of the shower.

We can help you to pick out radiators and obtain them for you using our trade discounts. Or, if you’ve already found your perfect radiator online, or bought it in from a local supplier, then we can come and fit it for you.

If it turns out that your system needs cleaning through to remove sludge and debris that’s preventing the radiators heating properly, then we’ll talk to you about power flushing, and arrange to come back to do this.

Relocating Existing Systems

There’s no need to let radiators dictate the way you use your space, just because they are where they are.

Although it causes a little disruption, we can very often relocate radiators to a more convenient position in the room. Because of the efficiency of modern radiators it may be possible for the heat you need to be provided by a new radiator that takes up less wall space than the one it replaces. There’s also the option to use vertical radiators to replace older horizontal models, and this can again free up valuable wall space.

Radiators As Art

There are some truly beautiful radiators around, and in their own way these can create as striking a feature as a great mirror, an exciting picture or an amazing piece of furniture. If you’re planning on buying one, give us a call to discuss it first, just so we can advise you on whether it’s likely to deliver the desired heat output.

Radiator problems can disrupt the efficiency of your heating system, or cause it to stop working altogether. Call FD Plumbing & Heating at 020 7060 4770 in London and the surrounding area for expert radiator replacement and installation everyday.
