Do I need to replace my radiators when I get a new boiler?

The good news is that replacing your boiler doesn't necessarily mean you have to replace your radiators, however, there are some reasons why you might want to consider it.

Do old radiators work with new boilers?

If you are replacing your boiler with a new one that is the same size, then yes! If the old radiators are in good condition and still working efficiently in your system now, they will most likely work well in the new system as well. 

But if your radiators are older, it could affect the efficiency of your new boiler heating your home, corrosion caused by age and frequent usage could cause your boiler to need to work much harder. When your new boiler is installed the engineer will likely perform a flush of your central heating system, which will help, but sludge and corrosion will of course build up much quicker in older rads which can cause poor heat production.

What can I do to prolong the life of my existing radiators?

When installing your new boiler, as mentioned above our engineers can offer a full chemical flush of your heating system. Our MagnaClean chemical cleaner is specially designed to remove sludge, debris and scale which may have built up inside your system over time. We will then fit a MagnaClean, high-efficiency, full-flow filter to prevent the build-up of these unwanted clogs to ensure optimum boiler efficiency and performance. It is important to keep your pipework clean as this is a major cause of boiler breakdown.

How Often Should Radiators be Replaced?

Like anything in your home, radiators can wear out and become less efficient over time. You may find they are not heating your home as quickly, getting blocked up or even becoming noisy. It can become clear that a radiator needs replacing when you find that heat is no longer distributed evenly over its surface, also known as cold spots. It is generally recommended that radiators are replaced every 15-20 years.

Do I need new radiators when replacing my boiler?

As previously explained, it isn’t always necessary, but sometimes it might be a good idea. 

Your existing radiators will probably not have been designed as part of an energy-efficient heating system and therefore could be quite inefficient compared to modern models. In recent years there has been plenty of design innovations, and manufacturing quality has improved to comply with higher standards and safety regulations, along with a larger focus on energy saving and reducing water usage - newer models can be as much as twice as efficient as older ones.

Another advantage of replacing your radiators at the same time as your boiler is that it can minimise disruption. Getting installation done together at the same time means you won’t have the upheaval of calling in an engineer a few years later if your radiators begin to fail further down the line.

It might also be an opportunity to modernise your heating system, long gone are the chunky unattractive radiators of old, now there are plenty of modern shapes and colours available to complement the décor of any home.

How do I arrange a boiler replacement?

If you’re ready to upgrade your boiler, but not sure if you need a chemical flush or replacement radiators, don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for! Give us a call and we will arrange for a surveyor to visit your home and explain the options available to you, and should you want to proceed, arrange a time for the installation that suits you.

Manufacturers That We Work With

I was really concerned about getting a new boiler by a company I found on the internet. We need not have worried in fact quite the opposite. Excellent communication, great price, lovely office staff, fantastic installation team. No mess, no bother I just wish that we had done it years ago. They moved the boiler out of the kitchen into the airing cupboard, silent boiler fabulous shower pressure no tanks in the loft. They stayed until about 9 pm to finish the job that day. We can't thank you enough.

My experience with Prime Time Boilers has been truly excellent all the way. My old boiler was deemed dangerous to use at this year check-up; I called Prime Time Boiler, a very experienced engineer came to visit us and gave us advice on which boiler to buy according to our type of house and family needs; very soon after we had a brand new boiler and cylinder tank replaced by two professional and polite workers. We have also set up a yearly boiler protection plan. All was at convenient prices compared to what other companies were offering. Thank you.

Excellent job done by Ray, Jack and Mitch to install my new Worcester Bosch Combi Boiler. The job was a conversion from a conventional system and involved moving the boiler from downstairs to the upstairs airing cupboard and taking the flue up through the roof. Routing the condense pipe to avoid the possibility of freezing in winter was also a complicated job but well done. New gas lines were installed and all the old iron gas pipes were disconnected and made safe. All the work was performed in a highly professional manner and I am very satisfied with the new boiler.

Great service all round, had a friendly site visit to assess the issue of having to install a new boiler and flu which was tricky to due to flat above. They were knowledgeable and competitive and the payment plan was perfect for our needs. The actual installation was very quick the engineer was very professional and tidy so happy days. We hope to get another job sorted with them soon for a different property.
