How to Bleed a Radiator: Simple-Step Guide

If you notice that some of your radiators are not heating up evenly, or there is a gurgling sound coming from the direction of your radiator, it often means that air has become trapped in the system. This air needs to be released, a job that is commonly referred to as bleeding. It requires minimal equipment and isn’t difficult to do! So pencil behind the ear, let’s go:   1. Check all radiators If the central heating system is not running, switch it on to build up pressure and test the radiators. Take care not to burn yourself when touching hot radiators, but feel each one to identify where air has become trapped. A radiator is noticeably cooler towards the top… Read more

Choosing the Right Valves for Your Radiator

When it comes to your radiators, choosing the right valves matters. You need to pick the correct valves that will work well with your radiator and give you the control you want.

They tend to have thick cast-iron heat exchangers, minimal electronics and few moving parts, save from an external… Read more

How To Match Your Radiator With Your Kitchen

How To Match Your Radiator With Your Kitchen As kitchen designers we can be a bit precious about anything that interferes with the sleek lines of a beautifully installed kitchen! Radiators in particular can look incongruous in the midst of a minimalistic kitchen.  We also tend to try and use all the available wall space to maximise storage, leaving little room for heaters. Yet many customers do specify that they want a radiator and fortunately nowadays it is possible to find contemporary, stylish radiators which complement rather than detract from the kitchen design. The majority of kitchens we install at KDCUK are from German kitchen specialist Schüller. They are modern and… Read more
