With the recent rise in energy prices, there is no better time to ensure that you are getting the most out of your heating solutions. In some cases, replacing radiators is the best thing that you can do.

When To Replace Your Radiators

Unless your radiators stop working entirely, you may not think about replacing them. However, it is a good idea to change the standard steel models that many homes have every 10-20 years. Alternatively, you could opt for Trads cast iron radiators, which are built to last. In fact, we offer a lifetime guarantee on all of our models!

Why Replace Your Radiators?

Performance - As radiators age their performance can decrease. Rust, corrosion and blockages may lower general heat output, as well as creating specific cold spots. It is rare that a radiator will have a sudden catastrophic failure, it is much more likely that they will slowly become less and less effective over time.

Style - This is somewhat less pressing than how well your radiators are functioning but this factor is still very important. Style is something that those in the midst of refurbishing a property often have at the forefront of their minds. Many homes utilise basic steel models, which do not add anything special to the owner’s interior design vision. On the other hand, you can finish your home beautifully with Trads cast iron radiators!

Is Replacing Radiators Difficult?

Replacing radiators may seem like a difficult task, but in reality it is very manageable. Many of our customers actually choose to undertake this task themselves. If this would be your preference, you can always get a bit of extra help from our ‘How To’ videos. Find them here on our website.
