Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Can I bleed radiators myself, or should I hire a professional?

    While bleeding radiators is a simple maintenance task, if you’re unsure, our team at Rowlen is always ready to assist.

    Using a Radiator Bleed Key

    You can get tools such as the radiator key and bleed valve, from your local plumbers merchants.

    When radiators have trapped air, they may not function optimally, leading to uneven heat distribution and cold spots.

    1. Identify the Radiators: Determine which radiators need bleeding by checking for cold spots or unusual noises.

    2. Turn Off the Heating: Ensure your central heating system is turned off before starting the bleeding process.

    3. Locate the Bleed Valve: Find the bleed valve on the radiator, typically a square-shaped nut located on one side.

    4. Place a Container: Put a small container under the bleed valve to catch any water that might drip during the process.

    5. Use the Radiator Bleed Key: Insert the bleed key into the square shaft on the bleed valve, sometimes you can use a flat head screwdriver. Turn it anticlockwise to open the valve.

    6. Release the Air: You’ll hear a hissing sound as air escapes the bleed valves. Once the water starts to flow steadily, close the valve by turning the key clockwise.

    7. Check Pressure: Monitor the pressure gauge on your central heating to ensure it stays within the recommended range.

    Regularly bleeding radiators helps maintain an efficient central heating system. However, if issues persist or you encounter unexpected problems, it’s crucial to take precautions and, when in doubt, seek professional assistance.

  • Are there additional costs associated with new radiator installation?

    No, our radiator installation packages at Rowlen come with fixed costs covering all aspects of the job. There are no hidden fees, providing clarity and peace of mind.

  • How long does it take to replace a radiator?

    When we replace radiators we understand that your time is valuable, so we make our radiator installation process as efficient and hassle-free as possible. Typically, installing a new radiator can take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours. However, the exact time can vary depending on the complexity of the installation, such as the existing pipework, radiator brackets, style of the radiator if they are vertical radiators, if the previous fixing holes need filling, the size of the radiator, and the specific requirements of your heating system.

    Our skilled team works diligently to ensure a smooth and swift installation, prioritizing minimal disruption to your day. Before we start, we’ll assess your space and provide a clear estimate of how long the job will take, keeping you informed every step of the way. Rest assured, with Rowlen, you’re in good hands for a speedy and professional radiator installation.

  • When should I replace my old radiator?

    If your old radiators are consistently failing to heat up properly, showing signs of rust or leakage, or just isn’t efficient anymore, or you are undergoing home renovations it might be time for a replacement. Also, consider upgrading if your radiator is old and you’re renovating your home or looking to improve energy efficiency. Newer models are more effective and can help save on heating costs in the long run.

  • My thermostatic valve has fallen off, what do I do?

    First, don’t panic. If you’re comfortable with DIY fixes, you can attempt to reattach the valve by screwing it back onto the radiator valve body. Make sure it’s secure but don’t over-tighten. If the valve or radiator threads are damaged, or if you’re unsure about doing it yourself, we are happy to help. We can ensure a safe and correct reattachment or replace the valve if necessary.

  • When you are doing my replacement radiators can you use the existing brackets?

    No, typically you cannot use the existing radiator brackets when installing a new radiator. This is because different radiators often have varying sizes, weights, and mounting requirements, which means the original brackets might not properly support the new unit or sometimes are sitting on crumbling plaster. Ensuring a safe and secure fit often requires new radiator brackets that are specifically designed for the dimensions and style of your new radiator. Our team at Rowlen will assess your installation needs and will always remove and replace the appropriate wall brackets to ensure a safe and proper installation.

  • What are the different type of radiator valves?

    A Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV) and a lockshield or manual valve serve different purposes in controlling a radiator’s heat output:

    • TRV (Thermostatic Radiator Valve): A TRV is designed to control the temperature of a room by automatically adjusting the flow of hot water into a radiator based on the room’s temperature. It does this without manual intervention, thanks to a thermostatic head that expands or contracts with temperature changes. This feature makes TRVs energy-efficient, as they help to maintain the desired comfort level by reducing or increasing heat as needed.
    • Lockshield Valve: A lockshield valve is used to balance the heating system by controlling the flow of water through the radiator, ensuring an even distribution of heat across all radiators in the system. It is usually covered with a plastic cap and requires a special key or tool to adjust. Once set, it is not typically adjusted again unless the system is rebalanced.
    • Manual Control Valve: A manual valve, on the other hand, allows for the manual control of the same flow of hot water into a radiator. It operates much like a tap; you turn it to open or close it, thereby controlling the radiator’s heat output. Unlike a TRV, a manual valve does not adjust automatically and requires manual adjustment to change the room’s temperature.

    In summary, a TRV offers automatic temperature control based on the room’s temperature, a lockshield valve is used for balancing the heating system, and a manual valve provides simple, manual control over a radiator’s heat output.
