Emptying a single radiator is sometimes useful for adding chemicals, replacing the radiator, or connecting a hose to the radiator valve for draining the system when there’s no drain off valve. I have been a full-time heating engineer for over a decade and have drained many central heating systems and single radiators over the years.
Radiators tips and advice from a full-time UK heating engineer. How-to guides from an everyday plumber and gas engineer.
Not having inhibitor in your heating system can cause all sorts of problems. Central heating inhibitor will protect your system against corrosion, limescale and essentially make your heating system last longer. I have been a full-time heating engineer for over a decade and have fixed and replaced my fair share of radiators and heating systems.
Turning a radiator off can sometimes cause problems, especially on old heating systems with radiator valves that haven’t been touched for many years. They can start leaking and break when using them for the first time. I have been replacing and repairing radiators for over a decade and I have turned off and on all
A Magnaclean installation on your heating system is recommended to collect the iron oxide and sludge that builds up in systems. I have been a full-time heating engineer repairing and installing boilers for over a decade. Whether you haven’t had a central heating magnetic filter before or replacing an old one, I will show you
Whether it’s one radiator not working or two radiators or more, a cold radiator means there’s a problem with your central heating system that needs to be fixed to get the hot water flowing through again. I have been a full-time heating engineer fitting and fixing central heating systems for over a decade. Here I’ll
Whether it’s for decorating or to flush a radiator cold at the bottom, removing a radiator from a wall can be very difficult. Depending on what central heating system you have, the size of the radiator you’re removing, and the age and condition of the valves, it can be a 6-hour nightmare or a 20-minute
A magnetic filter is fitted to a central heating system to collect iron oxide and sludge using a powerful magnet. Sludge build-up inside parts on a boiler is the number one cause of a boiler breaking down. Central heating magnetic filter cleaning is a great way to make your boiler last longer, help stop your
