How do Radiators Work?

Radiators work in a simple process. Steam or circulating hot water prompt the radiator to generate heat. When the water is heated, the radiator gives off heat which in turn warms the air in each room either by convection or radiation.


Once the hot water has made its way to the radiator, it will emit heat into the area. Radiation is a small percentage of the overall heat produced by a radiator.


With this process, the heated air from the radiator rises. When it does, cool air is drawn into the underpart of the radiator. This rising and drawing in motion of the air create vertical currents that evenly disperse heat into a particular area.

If you want your radiator to function properly, it needs clear and unobstructed airflow. The radiator should have ample access for air to travel under, over, and around the unit. Never place curtains, drapes, sheers, or shades in front of the radiator.

If you have a table or other piece of non-solid furniture equipped with legs, the airflow will not be hindered as much. You should still leave several inches between the radiator unit and the non-solid piece of furniture if you choose this option.

Benefits of Radiator Heaters

There are several benefits to having a radiator heater. However, below are some of them.

Radiator heaters are safe.

The main benefit is the level of safety offered to the user. A lot of portable radiator heaters are equipped with a tilt sensor, which cuts the power if a radiator heater is unbalanced or knocked on its side. The heaters also retain heat well, making them ideal for extended use. 

While it’s still not advisable to leave flammable materials draped over the radiator heater surface, it is much less of a fire hazard than other forms of heaters. Lastly, they do not produce any harmful odors, gasses, or chemicals when used, unlike other gas heaters that need ventilation to be installed.

Radiator heaters require less maintenance.

Radiator heaters need less maintenance compared to their competitors. They do not contain any fuels that need replacement and ventilation does not compromise warmth. Make sure that you buy one that has a built-in adjustable thermostat, as this will help prevent wasted heat and lower your overall energy usage.

Radiator heaters are reliable.

The last advantage of the radiator heater is its reliability. If you have plans of installing a radiator in your home, it will last for many years – and in some situations maybe even decades. 

How to Know if Your Radiator Needs Repair

Below are some of the telltale signs that your home radiator needs repair.

Bleeding radiator problems

This does not mean the system has a leak and is shedding water into your home. It is a natural process that happens when your radiator system is not working properly. If you find your radiators are not warming up a room as they should, the chances are there is trapped air inside the radiator that needs to be “bled” from the system. It is an easy job for a professional like Wallsend Plumber on this type of radiator installation project.

Leaking radiators

This is the type of leak that can range from minor to severe. The location of the leak also plays a role in how easy or difficult the repair will be. Between steam radiators and hot water radiators, the steam model of the radiator is easier to repair. However, you need to find the location of the leak.

Next in the radiator installation process, the radiator should be drained the leak area cleaned, and then repaired, if possible. There is no magic product that you can pour into the radiator that can patch, and hold a leak. Our professionals at Wallsend Plumber will advise you of the best approach to repairing or replacing the radiator.
