Unusual Heat Distribution

Sometimes you may experience a colder temperature on the top of the radiator but much hotter at the bottom. It also disrupts temperature distribution and this is mostly caused by trapped air. Bleed the radiator to release air and it will function smoothly like before. But, setting up the radiator in the wrong way may shut it down or produce inadequate heat.

In some cases, replacing a radiator comes at a cheap price compared to heavy repair.

One thing to remember— hot air is lighter and cold air is heavier. So, the radiator draws in the colder air at the bottom and passes it through the radiator fins, it then discharges warmer, lighter air at the top. This cycle continues and this is how radiators work with your boiler to heat up your home. Now, if your radiator stops working, your home will not heat up. The boiler will be drawing power and pad up your electricity bill without giving you the end product.
