Radiator repair vs. radiator replacement

Sometimes you may find it difficult to decide whether to repair or replace your radiator, but here are some things to consider before you make the decision. Start with the radiator age. No matter how new your radiator is, if it becomes inefficient, fails frequently, or has cracks in the body, you need a radiator replacement.

There's a big difference between a radiator with a small leak that's otherwise in good shape and a badly damaged radiator that's nearing the end of its life. To determine whether repair or replacement is more cost-effective, you need to assess the extent of the damage and the overall condition of your radiator. You should also consider the manufacturer's recommendations, the possibility of internal damage, and the size and location of the leak.

Your Satisfaction Keeps Us Growing

Here are some of the most common radiator repair issues we can help you with

Are you finding that your radiators aren't heating up as quickly as they used to? Are strange noises, leaks, or cold spots causing issues? The experts at Fantastic Handyman are available the same day (subject to availability) to aid in all types of domestic and commercial radiator repair work. Don't waste your time and money trying to figure out what is wrong with the central heating system- simply call in the certified professionals.

Repair leaking radiators

When fixing a leaky radiator, the first step is pinpointing the cause. In cases where the unit has a hole in it, there's no use attempting to repair it - simply replace the device. However, our skilled Gas Safe-registered engineers are more than qualified to handle any issues relating to pipes, joints or valves that could be causing leaks.

Radiator power flush

Keeping your central heating system in tip-top condition is essential, and an expert power flush can help. This service helps clear away any sludge, rust build-up or scale deposits that have accumulated over time, restoring the system's efficiency. Powerflushing can even helps reduce pipe noise significantly. It efficient if your radiators are cold at the bottom or cold at the top.

Bleeding radiators

Bleeding radiators is a job best entrusted to professionals. The heating engineer will use a bleed key to get rid of any air that has become stuck in the heating system, resulting in hot and cold patches. Not only will this save you money in the long run when it comes to heating bills, but you can also rest assured no unsightly water damage will occur from spillages.

Balance radiators

To ensure the efficiency of your heating system and save money in the long run, get a professional to look at each of your radiators. Bleeding the units and adjusting the valves will ensure all radiators are operating at an even temperature, regaining any imbalance that may have occurred. This should result in noticeable savings on energy bills.

Clean built-up sludge/slime inside a radiator 

When a central heating system is bogged down with sludge, radiator efficiency can be significantly reduced, and it is best to consult a certified radiator engineer for assistance. The issue can be identified and fixed through an in-depth check, usually through a central heating powerflush service. Neglecting this problem will worsen it - the entire heating system may break down, regardless of how new your boiler may be.

Repair pinholes and cracks in radiators

Pinholes and cracks in a radiator often indicate rust due to uninhibited oxygen in the system. In such cases, you may find that replacing the radiator is the most cost-effective solution. Furthermore, it's worth considering changing your thermostatic radiator valves at the same time for optimal efficiency.

Repair leaking and sticking Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs)

When it comes to TRVs, a stuck knob or control can lead to radiator leakage. A local engineer should assess the situation and adjust your heating system accordingly.

Repair radiators making humming/vibrating/bubbling noises

Be it a hum, vibration or bubble, strange noises emanating from your radiator are more often than not due to air locked in the pipes. An experienced professional should be contacted to bleed the radiators and restore their efficiency.

If a radiator unit cannot be repaired or is not economical, the specialists will gladly send a quotation for a new replacement unit. However, investing in annual radiator and boiler maintenance is the best route to avoid unexpected radiator failures. Taking preventative measures reduces costly repairs and ensures increased efficiency and the longevity of the heating system.

Important: Get a local Gas Safe registered engineer to perform the work on your central heating radiators to the highest standards. Safe installation and repair works can prevent health issues like carbon monoxide poisoning, exposure to which can be fatal.

Frequently asked questions about our radiator repair service

Q: When should I replace my radiator?

A: On average, you can expect radiators to work with no signs of failure for at least 10-15 years. By investing in annual radiator maintenance, you can prolong their life significantly. But if your home radiator shows some of the following signs, you should consider replacing them.

  • Your radiator lasted for decades without being properly maintained;
  • You want to make the most of your new high-performing boiler;
  • Central heating costs are running high because of radiator inefficiency;
  • Recently, you have stumbled on frequent radiator failures, leaks, or rust in radiators;
  • Or, you are beginning a renovation project and want to replace your old radiators with good-looking appliances.
Q: My radiator is leaking. Can you help me today?

A: No worries, we can send an emergency plumber as soon as possible! Your heating engineers are available 7 days a week, are local to you, and can get to your place in a jiffy. Just contact us or check the real-time availability through the mobile app or the online booking form.

Q: I have a cold radiator. Can you help?

A: This common problem is often caused by sludge that builds up in the pipes. The sludge sinks to the bottom of the radiator, resulting in an uneven temperature - hot at the top and cold at the bottom. Fortunately, there is a solution! Power flushing will remove the blockage, allowing water to flow freely throughout your radiator so that it can warm evenly.

Q: Do I have to replace my radiators after installing a new boiler?

A: When replacing your boiler with a new, highly performance one, it is important to be aware that older radiators may not be able to handle the pressure of the new unit. Therefore, getting professional advice from a heating specialist is highly recommended to identify the right size and type of radiator for optimal central heating performance.

Q: Do you fit thermostatic radiator valves?

A: Yes, we can install a TRV and actually, many people call us when they need this service. 

Q: On average, how long does it take to repair a radiator?

A: It depends on the problem, but repairing a leaking radiator can take up to an hour.

Q: What is your coverage?

A: You can book your service anywhere within the London M25 zone. Just enter your postcode in the booking form and check the real-time availability in your area.

Q: Do you offer any guarantees?

A: To provide you with complete peace of mind, our radiator repair, replacement and installation service comes with a 1-year guarantee on workmanship.

Q: How many technicians will you send to replace my radiators?

A: If the radiator size is less than 1m, one plumbing engineer will visit your home. If your radiator(s) are heavy and bigger than 1m, removing and mounting radiator units will need an extra pair of hands. In this case, we sent two technicians to observe health and safety regulations.

Q: What other maintenance tasks can you help me with?

A: We can send you a professional to handle the job if you need a certified Gas Safe engineer to install a boiler or it's time for your annual boiler servicing session. The team of certified gas and heating engineers can handle a wide range of services, including issuing Gas safety certificates, performing boiler repairs and all types of central heating repairs.
