There are many ways Britons can save money on their energy bills, from putting foil behind their radiators to ensuring furniture isn’t obstructing radiators.
Now, heating experts have shared a simple radiator hack that will not only make radiators work more efficiently but heat homes faster.
If a radiator is cold at the top when it’s switched on then it likely needs to be bled.
Nic added: “Bleeding radiators regularly means they won’t take a long time to warm up, in turn helping to reduce energy bills. “
Daniel Khanlarpour, also known as the Gas Guru, is a gas safe engineer and has been a member of Checkatrade for the past four years.
He said: “Using a radiator bleed key, open the bleed valve on the top of the radiator allowing the air to escape and catching any drips with a cloth, once water starts coming out the radiator is bled.
“Correct boiler pressure afterwards as per user manual.
“Try and avoid using radiators to dry clothes on if possible.”
Radiators should be bled when the central heating system is turned off and the radiators are cold.
