Leaking Radiators in Need of Replacement in Hereford

At Munday Taylor Lamont, we recognise the most Common causes of leaks to radiators are due to and rust and corrosion. In the unfortunate event of a radiator leak, we are always ready to help our customers who we have been assisting in Herefordshire for many years.

Even the most beautiful designer radiators are subject to basic chemical reactions such as rust and leaks. With central heating being reliant on water to make it work, unless you do something to prevent it, it is inevitable that the water will begin to react with the steel.

The most common cause of corrosion in your radiator system is sludge, a black, mud-like substance which, if untreated, will build up over time. From the inside of your radiators, it will cause rusting which end up eating tiny holes in the radiator resulting in leaks. However, your radiators aren’t the only part of the system that are potentially affected by sludge – it can cause damage to the boiler, pump and valves, as well as causing blockages in the pipework and heat exchanger.

How to Prevent Corrosion

The best form of defence against corrosion in central heating system, is to make sure that a central heating inhibitor is sufficiently added the central heating system. Alternatively the central heating system can be treated in a few different ways. A central heating cleansing chemical can be added into the system. This will be circulated around the system to help cleanse the radiators and pipework and then drained out at a later date, whilst introducing a central heating inhibitor chemical. A power flush can also be carried out. This procedure flushes the central heating system under a stronger pump pressure, whilst also using a sludge removing chemical to help remove any debris and reduce the risk of corrosion. After the system has been flushed, a corrosion inhibitor needs to be added for extra protection. Although it will not prevent corrosion happening completely, it will certainly slow it down. To continue the protection, additional chemical treatments need to be added on a regular basis.

Central Heating Power Flush

At Munday Taylor Lamont we have specialist Power flush equipment to ensure we achieve the most effective results when carrying out central heating power flushing in Hereford, Herefordshire and surrounding areas (list). This procedure which thoroughly cleans rust / sludge from central heating systems fixing cold radiators and noisy boilers creating a warmer home for you, with improved central heating and hot water, whilst reduced gas bills. our friendly and experience engineers can easily fix your central heating powerflush problems.

Common symptoms of central heating systems requiring a power flush

– Radiators are cold because they contain dirty water and are clogged up with corrosion debris. In this state the heating system burns a lot more fuel as it struggles to heat the home

– Boilers make loud banging noises called “kettling” because corrosion debris blocks and damages the heat exchanger. Blockages reduce circulation causing boilers to overheat and cut out.

­- Hot water fluctuates hot and cold due to corrosion debris in the combi boiler domestic heat exchanger. Flow reduce to a trickle due to limescale. If the problem is left too long the domestic heat exchanger may need to be replaced.

– If radiators are stone cold then corrosion debris maybe blocking radiator pipes and the sooner the system is powerflushed the better before blockages become permanent and need to be cut out.

Replace Your Current Radiator in the Same Position

We realise that people like to adapt and change their surroundings for many reasons, from just fancying a change to wanting to create a feature with a new radiator. So if a replacement service is what you’re after, we will be ready to take your phone call and assist you.

Installing a new radiator or completely changing the position and location of an existing one

Choosing the right size and type of radiator is vital in order to heat a room quickly and efficiently. At Munday Taylor Lamont we will correctly size the radiator to the room that it will be installed in.

Because of this many factors must be taken into account, including elevation (whether it is south or north facing), the fabric of the building, the number of doors and windows, and the type of flooring (whether it is suspended or solid). All of these variables affect the amount of air changes that take place, which in turn affects the amount of Watts/KW’s (Btu’s) needed to heat that room.

At Munday Taylor Lamont – we know and understand that all of these questions are vitally important and that’s why our “new radiator installation service” will come with all of our professional thoughts and all the advice that you could possibly require!
