   Show Your Radiators Some Love!


To keep your radiators working as they should you need to make sure they are properly cleaned and maintained. This is something many people will forget to do but just a few hours work can make your heating system more efficient, great for the environment and your wallet!

Flush The Sludge

Sludge composed of dirt and rust particles can accumulate inside your radiator, which can make it difficult for water to move efficiently. This will lead to cold spots which will reduce the efficiency of your radiators. Take a look at our guide to find out how you can clear the sludge from your radiator.


Balance Your Radiators

Balancing radiators involves adjusting the valves on the radiators in your home so they all heat up at the same rate. If your radiators aren't balanced, some will be warmer than others, which can lead to hot and cold spots in your home. Luckily, we have a handy guide to help you balance your radiators yourself!


Bleed Your Radiators

Bleeding your radiators is an essential part of maintaining your heating system. Air can become trapped inside your radiators which can hamper their performance. By bleeding your radiators, you can release this trapped air which will help your radiators run more efficiently. To learn how you can bleed your own radiators, take a look at our guide.
