Radiators are uncommon heating systems in New Jersey, but if your home happens to use one, you can rely on Eastern Shore Heating and Air Conditioning to provide you with expert repair, replacement, or maintenance services. Many older homes use radiators, and while more modern heating systems are available, radiators are still effective at keeping your home warm.
The oldest type of radiators, steam radiators, heat your home with boiling water. A boiler unit pipes steam to the radiator, which “radiates” warmth to heat the room. Electric heaters, which use newer technology, follow the same concept but heat a type of thermal oil instead of water.
Radiators can be tricky to work with and many use outdated or rusted parts, so it’s best to call in the experts to service yours. Contact Eastern Shore Heating and Air Conditioning today if you’re unsure of the condition of your radiator, and we’ll help you feel confident about its ability to heat your home.
Though radiators are reliable long-term heating options, they still wear out over time. At some point it will be more cost-efficient to replace your unit with a new one. If your radiator has required frequent repairs, you should call Eastern Shore Heating and Air Conditioning to schedule a radiator replacement.
You should also be aware of these issues that indicate it’s time to replace your radiator:
- Loud banging noises
- Excessive heat flowing from the unit
- Frequent air trapped in the unit
If your home still uses a steam radiator, making the switch to an electric one can be more effective and cost-efficient. When it’s time to replace your radiator, however, you may want to consider switching to a new heating system altogether. We’ll help you determine the best heating system for your home and provide you with a free replacement estimate.
Installing a new radiator is a complicated job best left to the experts, especially if you’re switching from an old steam radiator to an electric one. We offer expert radiator installation services at affordable prices. Many electric radiators go for anywhere from $250 to $500, and we keep the installation costs low so that keeping your house warm doesn’t have to break your budget.
Though radiators require less maintenance than other heating systems, it’s important to have them looked at by a professional at least once a year. As part of our maintenance services, we will:
- Inspect your pipes for signs of wear and tear
- “Bleed” your radiator to remove trapped air
- Clean the radiator vents
If we notice any leaks, cracks, rust spots, or other signs of damage, we will fix these issues during the appointment.
