Advice

Safety
If you have a gas leak, contact Transco (gas company) immediately. If there is a leak from your heating system see advice on water.

Type of heating system
Do you know if your heating system uses gas or electricity, have you made sure you have credit on your meter? Gas central heating systems need electricity for the pump and controls so power cuts, fuse issues or electrical problems can affect them.

Radiator problems
If one radiator is not heating up, check that it is turned on. It may help to bleed the radiator.

Bleeding a radiator

  • is done with a radiator key (available from hardware stores)
  • releases trapped air that causes the top of the radiator to be cold when the bottom is hot
  • should be done with the system turned off and a rag or bowl to catch any leaks
  • should be done until the air stops hissing and water starts to come out of the valve.
