Sometimes a radiator can clunk and bang as it begins to warm up, other times it can remain cold long after you’ve turned your heating on. If this is the case, you may need to bleed your radiators.
Radiators need bleeding when pockets of air get trapped inside. The air causes the radiator to circulate hot water less effectively and so less heat is emitted, meaning it will take longer to heat your home. Until you bleed your radiator to get rid of the air, you’re likely to be using more energy and therefore your energy bill could be higher than average.
We recommend doing a full check of all the radiators in your home every couple of months.
If your boiler is on the blink and you’re thinking about getting a new boiler installed, then contact us today and we will be able to advise you on which boiler is best suited to your home and needs.
Alba Heating’s policy is that a new boiler will only be installed after power flushing the system.
