Daves Top Tips Radiator Problems If you are having problems with your heating system, here are a few things to look out for that could be the cause. 1: Top of radiator cold, bottom hot. This is usually a result of air in the radiator that has risen to the top and is stopping any more hot water filling the radiator. It is cured by “bleeding� off the air from the top of the radiator by opening the bleed nipple and allowing the air to escape If your radiators need constant bleeding then too much air is entering the system and the problem is a bigger one requiring a central heating engineer to have a look. 2: Top of radiator hot, bottom cold. Rust and sludge has probably built up in the bottom of the radiator and this will displace any water leaving the bottom of the radiator cold. Proprietary sludge removers can be used to clean systems through. Theses are on sale at all plumbers’ merchants but read the instructions before use. 3: Downstairs radiators hot, upstairs cold. This generally means that the feed and expansion tank in your loft has run dry which can indicate a problem with the valve. This needs addressing quickly and a change of valve is usually in order. This is not a huge job and, as long as you have turned off the water, is well within the capabilities of a DIY enthusiast. 4: Upstairs radiators hot, downstairs cold. This possibly indicates a faulty central heating pump and this should be checked by an engineer. Regards Dave Stevens. If in doubt call me (see main advert for number) and I will do the investigating for you. Disclaimer. All advice above is given in goodwill with many years experience. We cannot guarantee however that your problems will be rectified so please, if in doubt call us before undertaking any works yourself.
