Radiator Replacement London

It’s the midst of winter and everything outside is covered in a blanket of snow, and the temperature has dropped again! You rub the condensation from the window and peer out. The landscape outside has changed considerably with the recent covering of snow, it’s almost magical. Those childhood memories of playing in the snow and building snowmen come flooding back. It’s both magnificent and harsh. Tomorrow, when you look out of the window it may all be gone (hopefully) leaving no trace and taking the freezing temperatures with it (you wish). You look forward to retreating to your favourite room with a steaming hot cup of coffee but the room temperature is not as you expected – in fact it’s colder than expected! You take a sip of hot coffee and investigate starting with the radiators. It’s the first time you’ve inspected them properly since they were installed all those years ago. You notice that there are a few radiators showing signs of weeping and rusting at the bottom, in the rooms you rarely occupy. Maybe, that’s why the boiler pressure keeps dropping?
There’s very little you can do except call a professional for advice? Just leaving the radiator, you know, could cause it to split then you’ve got a flood to deal with, not ideal.Faulty radiators or pipework always strike when you least expect it – usually in the middle of the night! Don’t delay if your radiators are in poor condition, prevention is better than the cost of clearing up after a flood, and it’s probably cheaper? If they need replacing then you’re on the right page!

This leaves you in complete control.
If you don’t like the idea of online quotes, we can arrange a site survey for you. Here’s how it works: Our engineer will come to your property and inspect the scope of the works. The radiators will be measured to calculate the heat output needed for each room. The pipework is assessed to gauge if it can accommodate the new radiator/s and advise if an upgrade to the pipework is also necessary. Once approved, we can agree a convenient date and time for the project. All Greenserve Ltd. work comes with a 1-year Greenserve Ltd. workmanship guarantee.
