Excellent service and Product

I recently bought 20 of these for a boutique hotel and they were all delivered next day, well packaged, well communicated and great quality. I will be back for my next project for certain.
Many Thanks,

Nice rad, but so far from the wall

As above, nice rad, but the supplied chrome spacers mean it stands away from the wall by 10cm or 4 inches. Not what we wanted in a smaller bathroom

Simple to install and use

Please with this, warm towels to my schedule in the summer. Easy to install, just turn the rad upside down, fill with fluid and screw in. Used electrician for the wiring. Took him 10 mins.

Smooth installation

Hello, I have just replaced all radiators in a Victorian house with these and it had made so much difference. We knew the old ones were inefficient but the difference is incredible. House is now a home. Highly recommend.

Home Renovation

After renovating 4 rooms in my house at the same time and dealing with numerous online companies, I found Heating-style and their lovely customer service girls to be breath of fresh air. I bought 5 Terma Rolo Radiators in various colours and am delighted with them all. They finish of the rooms so perfectly and the team kept me up to date throughout the process. There were some delays from the manufacturer but there weren't any issues as they were completely upfront and transparent about everything. Would highly recommend.

How to bleed your radiators

How to bleed your radiators

Oct 17, 2017

Bleeding your radiator releases the air trapped inside them. It’s important to do this to ensure your central heating system is warming your home properly. If there are air bubbles trapped inside, it will prevent hot water from circulating effectively, so radiators aren't as hot as they should be, meaning they will take longer to warm your home.

It’s easy to bleed your radiators yourself. To help you with this, we have put together a step by step process of how to do this.

Step 1: Turn your central heating system on

It’s important to turn your central heating system on to allow all your radiators to heat up and to build up the pressure in the system to then force the air out of the radiators.

Step 2: Identify which radiators need bleeding

Check each radiator to see if all parts of it are warming up. Any cool spots (particularly towards the top) indicate that there could be air trapped inside the radiator that will need to bleed out.

Please be careful when testing the radiators, they do get very hot and the last thing we want is for you to burn yourself. 

Step 3: Bleed the radiator

For this, you will require a radiator key or a flat-blade screwdriver. If you don’t have these, you’ll easily be able to pick them up from your local hardware store.

Switch off your central heating system and wait for it to cool down. Once the system has cooled down, you are ready to start bleeding the radiators.

At the top of the radiator, there will be a bleed valve. Attach the radiator key to the square part in the centre, or put the end of the screwdriver into the groove. Hold the key/screwdriver with a cloth, and have another cloth ready to catch any drops of water. Slowly turn the radiator key anti-clockwise – if gas is coming out, you’ll hear a hissing sound.

Once all the gas has been removed, liquid will begin to come out, so the valve will need to be quickly closed. You do this by tightening it back clockwise, but be careful not to over tighten the valve as this could damage it. 

Step 4: Check the pressure of the boiler

You can check the pressure by looking at the gauge on your boiler. If the pressure is too low, you will need to top it up. You do this using the lever or tap on your boiler known as the filling loop.

Step 5: Check if its worked

Check if your efforts have been successful by switching your central heating back on and letting all the radiators heat up. Check them again for any cool spots.

And that’s it, you’ve successfully bled your radiators!
