    Radiator Maintenance from HomeMates

    Having radiators that are working properly is essential for keeping your home warm during the harsh winter months. However, different issues with their normal functioning occur. If handles timely, the repairs shouldn’t cost much time, money and efforts but opting for some professional interference is recommended. Entrust a skilful plumber who has a vast experience in installing/ replacing and maintaining radiators in commercial and residential properties.

    If you have an experienced technician to rely on, they will determine where the leak comes from and do their best to fix it by using appropriate tools. Depending on how severe the damage is, it can take a bit longer to fix the radiator but rest assured that the best method will be used. If necessary, the radiator will be drained, any rust and grease will be removed and the decent products for stopping the leak will be applied.

    Bleeding is a common problem and it requires a lot of precision. The reason for the bleeding is the fact that the cold water holds more air than the hot water and as a result the radiators are not as warm as you want them to be. The trapped air has to be allowed to escape in order to unblock the flow of the water.
    Another problem that may arise is the corrosion of the radiators, which, therefore, makes them less efficient in producing heat and increases your bills. The power flush procedure restores the radiator to its decent condition by removing all the brown sludge, accumulated inside.
