Replacing old radiators with more efficient ones
23 August 2021
Radiators are usually one of the most reliable and enduring features of any property but years of frequent use will result in unavoidable wear and tear.
In the majority of cases, radiator issues are not the result of a single catastrophic event but a gradual accumulation. Magnetite rust, corrosion and blockages can take years to become noticeable issues, resulting in cold spots or a wider lack of efficiency throughout your heating system. If you're confident your hot water supply is functioning properly but your radiators are still failing to perform as expected, it might be time to replace your radiators units.
Larger radiators are often more efficient
If your old radiators are quite small, they will need to be hotter to heat the room to your preferred temperature, which means the boiler is working harder. Larger radiators are more efficient as they can run at a lower temperature and still heat the room sufficiently.
