How we replace
If your heated towel rail is part of a whole bathroom refit, it’s important to consider the look and impression you want to create with your new suite. On the other hand, if it’s a late addition to an existing bathroom, you need to work with what you’ve got.
In need of an emergency callout?
A chrome finish is ideal for modern and minimalist suites, fitting perfectly with their chic style. Chrome is also incredibly hard wearing, so your heated towel rail is sure to give you many years of service.
There’s never been a better time to do a radiator replacement, especially if its a towel rail.
Bleeding Your Radiator
Many people believe they need a radiator replacement when they don’t heat up but often a little care and attention can get it back up and running in no time.
A radiator that needs bleeding has cool air trapped in its upper portions. Thus, when you turn on the heat, either the entire radiator will feel cold or the top of the radiator will feel cold while the bottom feels warm. Unfortunately, a cold radiator can also signify other problems.
- \If you have multiple radiators in your house and all of them are cold or lukewarm, you probably have a larger issue with your heating system – your water heater may be malfunctioning or you may have a buildup of sludge or sediment somewhere in your heating system.
- \If your radiator problem is accompanied by an accumulation of water beneath the radiator then your radiator has a leak.
- \If the radiators on the upper floors of your house aren’t heating up but the radiators on the lower floors are, your heating system may not be operating at a high enough pressure to get hot water to the top floors of your house.
What to do next
As air escapes from your radiator, water will likely sputter from the bleed valve. Hold a cloth under the bleed valve to catch any drips, alternatively use a small bowl.
When a steady stream of water (not a sputtering mixture of air and water droplets) squirts through the bleed valve, you’ve released all of the air trapped in your radiator. Re-tighten your bleed valve (turn the bleed screw clockwise) and ensure that there are no leaks. Use a rag to wipe up any water that’s splashed around your radiator.
