I have a problem with my radiators.
They're Hot at the top, Cold on the bottom (Therefore it isn't air,
which would cause the top of the radiator to be cold & the bottom hot)
I've blead the radiators, and they are all filled with water.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Does this apply to all the radiators or just a couple, probably downstairs.
If its the latter, then its probably corrosion from the inside of your
system, collecting in the bottom of the radiators. This can be cleaned
through by having a 'power flush' done by the professionals, or by getting a
mate and isolating each radiator thats affected, taking it off the wall and
giving it a good wash through with plenty of water While you are there you
should drain the system and refill, using a corrosion inhibitor additive.
I have a similar problem at the moment, but am thinking of waiting til
spring to sort it, as I dont really want to be without my heating for too
also a possibility is slow water flow...i.e. hot water dribbles in at one
end rises to the top and heats the top up before slowly cooling and exiting
cold fru the outlet. try turning the pump speed up or turning other rads
down so this one has priority.
That link didn't work for me..
This one does though
for the list of software
I have just installed it and it works like a dream.... no more manual
deleting or accidental top-posting for me
Your system has sludge in it which has settle at bottom of radiators You can
clean your system with many different types of manufactured products from B&Q
always follow their guidelines on flushing system
