Keeping on top of the quality of your radiators is vital, find out why below.
One easy way to improve radiator efficiency is to give each radiator a thorough dusting. When dust accumulates on radiators, it prevents the heat circulating your home, meaning that essentially, this is going to waste.
So, why have a boiler for heating if you can’t feel the benefits of it? To ensure that you’re getting the most out of your money and the power of your boiler, service your radiators when necessary. Similarly, you should also ensure that your radiators are bled. This means unscrewing the radiator’s valve until all of the trapped air releases.
Ensure your radiators are bled. This involves unscrewing the radiator’s valve until all trapped air is released. The reason behind this is due to the fact that trapped air prevents water filling your radiators and thus, decreases their efficiency at circulating heat. It is a simple task that can be done with just a radiator key and takes only a few minutes, but it can have a significant impact on the performance of your heating system.
Finally, avoid covering your radiators with drying laundry. Radiant heat works by circulating around your rooms; laundry will block this flow of heat meaning your rooms do not heat up correctly.
