What do your radiator installation and replacement services include?

You can just go and buy radiators that suits your aesthetic feel. But is this the most efficient option for your property? Is it cost-effective? Well, our radiator installers are here to help you out with an all-encompassing, cost-efficient solution. Here’s how:

  • Radiator on-site inspection and plumbing modifications - First, your engineer will inspect the condition of the wall and take all the needed measurements. If the appliance isn’t a like-for-like replacement or does not perfectly align with your existing pipework, the gas safe technician will suggest to you minor or major plumbing modification.
  • Remove and replace your old-fashioned, existing radiators - The Gas Safe professionals, we work with, are capable of replacing any type of radiator unit. They will measure the replacement unit accurately, turn off the water supply, drain the system, dismount and affix the new replacement radiator.
  • Add extra units to the central heating system - The radiator plumber will help you define the best size and position for your new and modern radiator, according to your boiler output and size of the room where you intend to mount it. Then, he will ensure a mess-free radiator installation as close as possible to the existing flow and return pipes.
  • Install or replace radiator valves - Finally, the expert will screw in the TRV and lockshield valves and connect the unit to the central heating system. This will allow you to set a custom temperature at each room and greater control over the heat output of your radiator.
  • Testing your system - Once installed, the radiators will be tested for any signs of leaks.

What does your emergency radiator repair service involve?

Are you experiencing radiator issues such as weird noises, leaks or cold spots? Worry not. My Plumber’s engineers are on hand the same day (subject to availability) for all types of domestic and commercial radiator repair works. On the visit, the professionals will follow straightforward steps:

  • Inspection and fault finding - The technician will do an in-depth check of your appliance to identify the fault;
  • Radiator remedy - Expect your unit to be fixed the same day. If any part needs to be replaced, a second visit will be arranged to completely fix the radiator.
  • Advice on whether the radiator repair is economically justified - The engineer will suggest to you radiator replacement options if your appliance is not efficient anymore.
  • Running tests - Final test will be done to ensure that there aren't any gas leaking radiator and the system operates smoothly.

A shortlist of the most common radiator repairs

Repair leaking radiators

Your certified repairman will investigate the source of the leak first and foremost. If a radiator has a hole in it, it simply isn't worth fixing. Then, the radiator must be replaced. But if the leaky unit roots in the malfunctioning pipes, joints, or radiator valve, the radiator repair is straight-forward for our competent Gas Safe-registered engineers.

Radiator powerflushing

We advise you to book an expert power flush service regularly to remove sludge, rust build-up, sludge, and scale deposits from your central heating system. The service involves adding cleansing chemicals to increase the radiator heat and reduce pipe noise significantly.

Radiator bleeding

In case of noisy radiators or cold spots, the engineer can release the air trapped in the system with the help of a bleed key. With a professional service, you get real savings on your heating bills and ensure that no dirty water spills will stain your flooring, carpet or newly-decorated wall.

Balance radiators

Ask your technician to bleed your units and adjust the radiator valves to have all of your radiators heating at the same speed. With correctly balanced radiators, expect restored temperature balance and savings on your heating bills.

Common radiator repairs we can help you with

One-off and annual radiator service for your peace of mind

The key to preventing the need for radiator repair or replacement is in the heating system regular maintenance. Whether you move to your new house or just want to assure you have working radiators during the cold months ahead, you can count on My Plumber and make a radiator maintenance appointment to protect your central heating from unexpected damages, prolong the system lifespan, and ensure long term cost-efficiency. And let us remind you that faulty central heating appliances hide the potential risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

At My Plumber, the radiator inspection is usually combined with the regular or annual boiler check-up within the Boiler Service Plus offer. Apart from the regular boiler check, your radiator servicing includes:

  • Careful inspection if the radiators heat up properly; 
  • Assessing the danger of gas leaking radiators;
  • Visual check of all radiator valves, pipes, and couplings for possible pinholes and rust;
  • Radiator draining and pressure testing;
  • The expert will add anti-corrosion fluid to the system, if necessary.
  • At the end of the servicing, you’ll get My Plumber radiator key.
