Radiator servicing vs. radiator replacement
Figuring out when to replace or service your radiators can be tough because of the high initial costs for installing a new radiator. If you are in a dilemma, consider your radiator’s age first. But no matter how old it is, if your heater becomes less efficient, failures are frequent, or there are cracks in the radiator body, you need a radiator replacement service.
Well, you can solve minor and accidental faults with radiator repair rather than changing your unit. You can count on us and schedule radiator maintenance to protect your heating against preventable damages. As a result, it pays off with fewer breakdowns, radiators longer lifetime, and high efficiency, so you can save the hassle and costs of early replacement.
Important note:Compromised heating system hides the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Which is why we recommend installing carbon monoxide alarm and entrusting an integrated boiler and radiator service to a Gas Safe registered engineer each year.
Frequently asked questions
Q: How can I reschedule my upcoming appointment?
A: If you need to reschedule your radiator installation/repair appointment, you can do it anytime for less than a minute! Just navigate to Your Bookings within your Fantastic account. With only a few clicks, you can select the new desired date/time. And you are all set.
Q: Do you offer any special discounts?

Q: What is your area coverage?
A: Property, business owners, and landlords can book the service in Greater London (the M25 zone).
Q: How many technicians will you send for the radiator replacement?
A: If the size of your radiator is up to 1m, we will send one expert to your home. We take reasonable care for your and our expert health and safety. That’s why, expect two professionals to visit your home when the radiators are heavy and bigger than 1m.
Q: What is the cost to fit a radiator?
A: You pay for the labour costs to replace or fit a radiator. The amount of any materials, parts, radiators, and delivery costs comes on top. All-in-all, you pay for the actual job done. In case the heating engineer(s) arrives and can’t carry out the service because of your failure to provide access, you pay a call-out fee of 1 hour.
Q: Do I have to provide any tools or anything else?
A: From the radiator bleed key and spanner to the pipe cutter, the central heating plumbers bring all the tools and equipment to install or repair your radiators. So, here we’ve got you covered.
Q: What guarantees do you offer?
A: The Fantastic radiator installation, repair, and replacement service don’t end up when the technician leaves your home. For your peace of mind, you get a 1-year guarantee on workmanship (materials and parts are normally covered by a manufacturer's warranty). So, if by any reason you are unhappy with the work, we’ll make it right and ensure you receive the kind of service you expected.
Q: Where to position radiator units?
A: You can locate your radiators beneath the window or on an exterior wall. The logic is that you make use of the limited space under the window and reduce drafts. But, with all the advantages of the contemporary radiator models, you now have the freedom to locate your radiator wherever you like. Yet, you shouldn’t let the pipework dictate your radiator location. To get the best out of your radiator, seek the radiator positioning advice right from the professionals.
Q: Do I need new radiators if I replace my boiler?
A: When you install a new boiler, it makes sense to replace your radiators if the latter cannot handle the pressure output. It’s especially valid when you opt for a larger or combi boiler. To ensure you have the correct radiator type and size, consult with your heating engineer so you can choose what’s best for your property.
Q: Help! My radiator is leaking! What can I do?
A: Well, it depends on the source of the leak. Usually, radiator leaks come from the radiator fabric, the valve, spindle, pipework, etc. If corrosion made a hole into the radiator body, whatever temporary measures you take, you would need to replace it. But if the issue comes from the valve, it can probably be fixed. So, whenever you notice a warning sign, we recommend calling an accredited technician to identify the cause and deal with the leak quickly.
