Older homes in Cleveland Heights and elsewhere in Greater Cleveland are frequently heated by a gas-powered boiler and radiators that heat individual rooms. Over the years, there have been many innovations in radiator systems; today there are countless styles of radiators on the market made out of a variety of materials such as cast iron, steel, copper, and aluminum. Regardless of what type of radiator your home or business uses, annual preventative maintenance will help to extend its life. However, should your radiator need to be replaced, you will need to seek out the help of a Cleveland heating professional to advise you on what type of radiator is best suited for your home and budget, and to install it for you.
Like all HVAC equipment, radiators will eventually require repair. Below are some of the most common problems that homeowners in Northeast Ohio encounter with their radiators:
- The radiator is leaking water
- There is rust built up on the radiator’s exterior
- There is a rust or sludge build up in the radiator’s interior, obstructing water flow
- The radiator is making loud or unusual noises
- The radiator is running unexpectedly hot or experiencing temperature fluctuations
- Part of the radiator feels cold while the rest is hot, indicating trapped air in the unit
If you are experiencing any of these signs of radiator distress or failure, contact an experienced Cleveland heating company right away!
