Does it take a long time for your radiators to warm up?
Is your home as warm as you would like it to be? Our tips will help keep your radiators in tip-top condition and make them more energy efficient.
1. Have your radiators checked
Thermal imaging technology can provide you with photographic evidence of how well your radiators are working.
The first radiator is not working efficiently, only heating to 37.5C. The second radiator is working properly after being cleaned, giving a more even and warmer heat of 66.7C.
We can arrange for thermal imaging cameras to check your radiators for you. Contact us to arrange a visit.
2. Get your heating system powerflushed
Over time, sludge builds up in your heating system, causing your radiators not to work as efficiently. You may also experience cold spots in them.
A powerflush will clean your system through and get rid of the sludge and debris that has built up, helping to improve performance.
3. Consider getting new radiators
How old are your radiators? Have you had your boiler replaced but kept the same radiators? Like other appliances, your radiators deteriorate over time, so consider having them replaced.
Newer models work more efficiently, meaning they will be even better than your originals. Modern designs can also add aesthetically to your room. The radiators we supply come in a range of colours. With 180 different colours to choose from, there’ll be one to match your colour scheme!
4. Have thermostatic radiator valves (TRV) fitted
TRVs help you to control the heat within each room, so you can keep your most frequently used rooms warmer and be more energy efficient.
Turn down the TRV in your spare bedroom, or other rooms you don’t use as often, and keep the door closed. This will use less energy and save you money.
Until the end of April, we are offering 30% off the cost of new radiators.
