What’s Wrong With My Radiators?
Radiators are a necessary part of keeping your home warm throughout the winter months, so it can be a huge problem when one of them stops working. This is especially true in homes that don’t have another heat source, such as a fire or standalone heaters. Radiators themselves tend to work relatively well, without much of a worry from you. In fact, most radiators will work for years at a time within encountering a problem. However, as is the case with everything, problems can arise.
Is Your Radiator Cold at the Top or the Bottom?
Having a radiator that’s cold at the top of the bottom is one of the most common problems people face. Luckily, it’s extremely easy to fix and doesn’t usually require too much work. A radiator being cold at the top or the bottom, and warm everywhere else, is usually a sign that there’s air trapped within the radiator. Though this may sound like a serious problem, it’s not at all uncommon and it’s something that affects a lot of radiators at one point or another. To remove the air, the radiator needs bleeding. This is done by removing the valve on the radiator and letting the air out.
Is Your Radiator Making Funny Noises?
A radiator that’s making funny noises is often one of the first signs that something isn’t right. Usually, this noise is likened to a gurgling or bubbling sound. This is also a problem that can be fixed by bleeding the radiator and removing the air, as the noise itself is usually caused by air travelling through the system.
