Many older homes and apartments rely on radiators to keep residents warm throughout the fall and winter months. After a breakdown, you may wonder whether home radiator replacement is necessary. Forced-air furnaces require invasive ductwork and dropped ceilings to accommodate the new heating system. Thankfully, Aire Serv professionals can repair many radiator issues and spare you the expense and stress of a total replacement.
Our radiator repair services cover all types of radiators. Of course, if a replacement is necessary, we can walk you through whether a boiler replacement would nip issues in the bud. This is often the best solution for preserving the integrity of your home without sacrificing comfort.
Common Problems of Home Radiators
Because they have such long lifespans, radiators may date back decades, and are prone to leaks. They should be routinely inspected for leaks between the individual sections. If we find a leaking threaded radiator during an inspection, you will likely need to replace it. Manufacturers have switched to new designs, and older models can’t be repaired because the parts needed to fix them are no longer available. On the other hand, newer models can be patched using a sealant.
Contact us if you’re having the following issues with your radiator:
- Water is leaking from the radiator.
- There is rust buildup on the exterior.
- There is rust or sludge buildup on the interior that obstructs water flow.
- You hear odd noises.
- There are extreme temperature fluctuations.
- Part of the radiator feels cold, while the rest is hot.
These red flags can indicate larger issues. By taking swift action, you can keep breakages to a minimum and ensure comfortable temperatures all season long. If a home radiator replacement is needed, we can help you choose a reliable new unit and ensure it is installed correctly.
