I am decorating my lounge and want to remove the radiator to paint behind it
(i might even replace it).
Its an old thin radiator with the thermostat at the top and the two pipes
come out of the floor side, by side into it. On each of these pipes, there
is a kind of small silver wheel type nut. I have an Ideal combi boiler.
My question is, can I remove the radiator by simply tightening up these two
'wheel' looking nuts and then just taking it off or is there more to it than
that? I understand the pressure will drop on the boiler, which I can
repressurise afterwards, or is it more complex than that, ie I'd need to
turn off the water supply. I am inexperienced in this, and before I even
start, want to ensure it's as simple as it seems. I've looked all over the
web for this type of radiator/boiler, but to no avail.
Thanks in advance
