Radiators are normally reliable and regular inspections should be made to identify
rust around joints, welds and valves. Regular servicing and the use of a cleaning
and flushing solution will extend the life of your system.
Blocked radiators will reduce the efficiency of your central heating system and lead
to expensive replacement and repairs.
Radiators come in different sizes and prices, and blocked radiators requiring a complete
system drain down and flushing can in some instances be replaced more economically
by a new radiator. Our engineers can supply the appropriate advice when in attendance.
Radiator valves will corrode over time and leak water onto the flooring. Regular
inspections of your radiators will prevent the ruination of carpets and other flooring
etc. The changing of a radiator valve may appear to be inexpensive but in most cases
will require a drain down which obviously takes time. A normal drain down and refill
can take up to 2 hours, incurring up to £100 in labour charges.
Heating pumps lay at the heart of any central heating system and without its pump
then hot water is not being circulated through your system.
A defective pump may also be the cause of your central heating boiler failing to
Again pumps come in many guises and makes, and the price of any individual pump can
range from £60 to £200. You can also expect a fitting time of up to 2 hours which
will be added to the pump price, therefore the likely labour charges would be £80-

2 and 3 way valves are normally located above the central heating pump in traditional
gravity fed heating systems. They can also be found in other types of heating systems.
The most common diagnosis of a faulty valve is when the central heating remains on
constant even though the clock setting says otherwise.
