Why Use A Cast Iron Radiator Installer?

Leaving radiator installation to professionals is advisable for several reasons. Firstly, cast iron radiators are heavy and cumbersome, requiring specialist expertise to manoeuvre and install them safely. A cast iron radiator installer has the necessary tools and experience to handle models correctly, minimising the risk of injury or damage to property whilst fitting. If a model has been delivered but installation will take place further down the line, please follow our guidelines for carrying a cast iron radiator

Secondly, accurate plumbing is critical for the efficient operation of cast iron radiators. Professionals understand the intricacies of the process, including correct positioning, pipework connection and system balancing to ensure even heat distribution throughout the space. Improper installation can lead to issues such as leaks, inadequate heating or system inefficiencies, which may require repairs or replacements down the line. 

Additionally, hiring a cast iron radiator installer provides peace of mind knowing that the job will be done right the first time. They troubleshoot any unexpected challenges that arise during installation, minimising delays and ensuring a smooth and successful completion of the project. Entrusting the job to specialists is a wise investment that ensures safety and efficiency for property owners.

How To Find A Cast Iron Radiator Installer

Finding a reputable and trustworthy radiator installer is paramount to ensuring the longevity of your heating system. Their skills extend beyond connecting radiators to heat pumps or central heating systems; a knowledgeable radiator installer can fit an electric heating element to the model, assemble radiators that arrive in separate parts, change radiator sections and fit valves. They do this with precision and adherence to specific guidelines to prevent any potential issues such as leaks, uneven heating or damage to the radiators themselves. Should they need specialist advice, our customer service team are on hand Monday to Friday to provide guidance or any additional products required to achieve a successful installation.

Calculating BTU 

Before ordering a cast iron radiator, the heat output required for its setting should be calculated. A BTU (British Thermal Unit) is a unit of measurement used to quantify thermal energy. It can be used to determine the energy requirements for heating any given space. Trads’ radiators are made from several sections that are joined together. Each section generates a specific BTU, allowing radiators to be customised to perfectly heat a room. Our handy BTU calculator enables dimensions, type of room and other information to be inputted to assess the heating requirements of a space.
