If you live in the University Heights area and you have an older home, there is a chance that your home is heated with a boiler and you have radiators that heat individual rooms. Radiators are made out of a variety of materials. Some of the most common materials used for radiators are cast iron, steel, copper and aluminum. Radiators could last up to fifteen years but annual preventative maintenance will help to extend its life. If you need to have radiators or a boiler replaced, then you should contact a local Cleveland heating company. Verne & Ellsworth Hann has been installing, repairing and providing maintenance services on boilers and radiators for decades.
It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with your radiators. The more you know about your radiator system the easier it will be to identify when there is a problem. Hearing loud or unusual noises coming from the radiators can indicate that there is a problem. If you know how the system sounds normally when it turns on and off or when it is running, it will help to identify when there is a loud or unusual noise. Another common problem with radiators is that it may start leaking. If you notice water on or around the radiator and there is no other cause for it, then your radiator might be leaking. Even a small drip is something that could be a problem. Excess air and water can build up in the radiator. It is a good idea to have a technician “bleed” the radiator in order to get any air or water out of the system. Bleeding or venting the radiator should be done at least once a year.
