In this video, James the plumber removes a tired old white convector radiator and replaces it with a beautiful brand new stainless steel Deco designer radiator.

As James shows in the video, all of our Deco radiators come with clips, brackets, screws, plugs, grommets and bungs, so you really do have everything needed to hang a radiator straight away.

Before removing the existing radiator, turn off the heating system and drain it down completely. You are then in a position to remove the old radiator and strip back any pipework if required.

The new Deco radiator is a slightly different size to the one it is replacing, so James goes through the process of measuring and marking up where the new brackets need to go and then he drills the holes accordingly.

Just before hanging the radiator, James puts the grommets on the brackets to stop the radiator from vibrating. He then hangs the radiator on the brackets, puts in the air bleed and also uses a spirit level to make sure the rad is hanging correctly. He then pipes up the radiator to ensure it’s fully connected to the heating system and is ready for operation.

Stainless steel radiators have a few very important benefits that elevates them over their rivals. For example, stainless steel is incredibly resistant to corrosion, which is very important because the oxidisation process that goes on in your heating system can cause radiator sludge, blockages and an inefficient and expensive system. The fact that stainless steel is highly resistant to internal corrosion means that you are going to have a longer lasting and more efficient system. Of course, always use inhibitor in your heating system to further reduce the risk of corrosion.

Stainless steel radiators also have greater heat retention that a lot of other materials. This means that they will stay warmer for longer, even after the central heating has been switched off. The heat curve is much shallower and you will not get a serious drop off in heat once you turn the system off, which makes for much more comfortable conditions, especially in winter.

Stainless steel is very easy to keep clean and the finish actually improves the more times it is polished. Because the surface is not painted on like many chrome-plated radiators, the result is a deep and high quality polished finish. which looks fantastic in any setting.

The Deco radiator is available in a wide range of sizes, ranging from the horizontal to the vertical, so even if you are lacking in wall space, you are likely to find a suitable fit.

The Deco stainless steel radiators come in a polished finished, as shown in the video, or a beautiful brushed satin, which is more matt in finish and looks great with contemporary interiors.
All come with free delivery and comprehensive 25 year guarantee, which is testament to their high quality build and finish.
