Terma Hex Radiator - Mustard Yellow

Love this radiator, saw it all over Facebook and finally took the plunge and did not regret it at all! Makes my bathroom look super trendy and actually much warmer than I thought it would be. Toasty towels in the morning. Thanks HS for your help with sizing and the many delivery requests I had.

Works well but not eco friendly

The issue with this element is that it is either on and heating or you have to manually turn it off. The comfort mode is always on so the radiator is heated 24 hrs a day if you want to use any of the timer or boost functions. I thought it could just be on at set times and off the rest, but it can't.

Terma Hex Radiator - Copper

Absolutely love this radiator from heating-style.co.uk, the Terma hex radiator is so unique and reminds me of honeycomb. Looks amazing in Copper, trying to convince the wife we need the black one in the en-suite next. Love it. Thanks guys.

I contacted the company to send to France.Delivery was quick and efficient.The unit plus remote control work very well and I am very pleased.I will have no hesitation in using this company when required.

Excellent product

We are fitting out 3 holiday cottages and didn't want the towel radiators on all day , the bluetooth and app option gives us the ability to set them to come on and off several times a day to provide a little bit of towel warming without wasting energy during the summer season and not overheating the room - 2 ordered and fitted - 3rd one just ordered.

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!
