Hot water radiant heating systems are a good choice due to their efficiency and reliability. But just like any other home heating system, they require regular maintenance and occasional repairs.
Your local Mr. Rooter® Plumbing has the experience you need when your home radiators need service.
How Does a Home Radiator Work?
Because radiators are made of metal, they conduct heat well. Radiators are filled with hot water or steam generated by a boiler. One radiator will efficiently heat an average-sized room. Blowers and fans are not necessary with radiator home heating, which makes them a quiet way to heat a house.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are my best cast iron radiator replacement options?
If you like your boiler system but need a cast iron radiator replacement, choose new cast iron or copper fin tube radiator. Upgrading an older boiler to a new, high-efficiency one can actually pay for itself in the long run through energy savings. If the old boiler system has to go, replacing it with a traditional gas or electric furnace can be an expensive and complicated choice, due to the cost of installing new air ducts throughout the home. Electric baseboard heaters are another option that provide relatively easy installation right where the old radiators used to be.
How to clean a radiator in your house:
There’s no trick to cleaning residential radiators. Home radiators can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. If you’re removing years of dust, dirt, and spills, you can use a gentle, non-abrasive cleaning product. Clean radiators when they’re cool for best results.
Why is my home radiator leaking brown water?
If your home radiators contain brown water, this is an indication of rust in the system. Your local Mr. Rooter Plumbing will seal any leaks and perform a full system flush to remove as much rust as possible. Then we will refill the system with fresh water and conduct tests to make sure it’s working properly.
