Radiator Repair

Home radiator repair is important to keep your home comfortable during the winter months. Homeowners often forget about their radiators until they need them and find themselves faced with a broken heating system. Home Boilers in Nottingham can help you avoid this by providing professional radiator repairs in Nottingham, as well as tips on how to prevent future issues.

Benefits of repairing the radiator in your home

Home radiators are usually hidden away in winter, so they’re easy to forget about and let go until the heating system breaks. This can result in a costly professional boiler installation that you didn’t want or need! If your radiator is broken, it’s important to get it fixed as soon as possible because:

A radiator leak will eventually cause further damage, which could be worse than just repairing one small problem with it now.

The longer you wait, the more likely other parts of the house will freeze up from cold air coming out of an open pipe that needs fixing.

If a radiator is broken, it will release the heat from your home and could cause an increase in heating bills.

Tools we use for radiator repair

This is a rundown of the tools we use for repairing radiators:

– a professional quality, heavy-duty radiator wrench;

– an adjustable spanner for fixing the pipes in tight spaces;

– pipe sealant to ensure that your pipe doesn’t leak again.

Screwdrivers are also useful if you need access or want to replace fittings like taps, valves, etc.;

On top of that, there’s welding equipment should joints require brazing;

The process we use for radiator repair

This is what happens when you get professional help with repairing radiators:

We will first survey the damage and find out where it needs repair before carrying out any work–this might involve taking off pipework or brazing joints that need repair.

Next, we’ll fix whatever has broken (whether this is just one component of the whole system or individual parts) using either our professional quality tools or by replacing them altogether if necessary.

Finally, once everything’s been fixed up and the radiator is fully functioning again, we will seal the joint with professional-grade pipe sealant to ensure that your pipe doesn’t leak again.

Frequently asked questions

These are some of the questions our clients ask us about our boiler repair services.


What causes a home radiator to burst?

A home can burst due to a pipe being too old and fragile to bear pressure or if a joint has been incorrectly installed.

Can home radiators be repaired?

Yes! We can repair your radiator at any time so that you don’t have to worry about nasty leaks ruining your property.

How much does it cost to fix a radiator in a house?

The price for repairing your radiator will depend on how large the system is as well as what needs fixing inside–but we’ll let you know upfront before we carry out any work.

How do I know if my radiator is leaking?

If water is coming through onto hot pipes, then this may mean there’s usually a leak somewhere nearby, for several reasons, including a faulty valve.

How do I stop my house radiator from leaking?

This is a lot easier than you think! As well as the obvious of removing any excess water, it’s worth checking if there are any cracks or leaks in your radiators and also making sure that all joints have been correctly tightened.

Can radiators cause fires?

If the radiator is leaking or cracked, then it may be a fire hazard. Leaks and cracks can cause problems in homes by giving access to dust particles, which will increase the risk of building upon materials inside heating equipment such as radiators.

What happens when your radiator blows?

When they blow, this often means one of two things: either there has been an overpressure due to blocked vents on the home’s roofing system (or similar) or the heating element inside the boiler has burnt out. In both cases, professional help will be needed to repair them–so don’t try glueing anything back together yourself! It is a good way to start the day.
