Radiators are one of the oldest and most effective ways of heating a home and are still desired today due to their simplicity and efficiency. They operate by drawing heat from water or steam and use that heat to warm up surrounding air. Most are seen with various folds which help increase surface area. They are made from metal, as this material is a great conductor of heat. As the hot water or steam travels through the folds, it heats up and heats the surrounding area.
When your unit is not working properly, there could be a variety of things wrong with it. If your radiator isn’t heating up the room, there could be trapped air inside that needs to be let out. This is called ‘bleeding’ and is an easy repair for an experienced HVAC contractor.
