We Can Fix Your Radiators
Everyone knows what it’s like to have the heating on for ages and yet still feel a cold chill at your feet. You check all the doors and windows but it’s actually the radiators that are just not working properly. Your rooms don’t seem to heat up, no matter how long the heating is on!
Don’t worry – you are not alone. It’s very common and very frustrating…In fact, the main reason you are here right now is probably because you can’t face ringing your plumber again.
Well before we go any further, let’s clear up a few things first. All the components in your heating system probably work well independently… But when assembled as one unit, they don’t function collectively. So you don’t need a new boiler, new radiators or a new plumber…and you definitely don’t need to spend thousands ripping up your house for a new heating system!
You just simply need Oxyvent.
- Do your own home test
Here’s a simple test you can do to find out how effective your radiators work. Switch on the heating and wait for 1 hour. Then carefully check the middle lower section of all the radiators with your hand. You will notice that the further away from the boiler you go, the easier that section becomes to touch. Now carefully place your hand on the two pipes going into each radiator to check their temperature. Again you will notice a large temperature difference the further away the radiator is from the boiler.
If this is the case with your home, then there is no way that your heating system can currently heat all the rooms efficiently. If the centre lower section of the radiator is cold, then your feet are cold and that’s just not the kind of comfort you expect or desire. The only way to get your radiators to produce a more efficient heat and make your whole house feel cosy is with Oxyvent.
Unwanted call backs to common problems with heating systems are very annoying and time wasting for both Plumber and customer. Some of the usual suggestions to fix them include:
- Power Flushing – to get the sludge out of the radiators.
- Balancing radiators – taking heat from one radiator to try and get another one working.
- Bleeding/Venting of radiators
- Air locks
- Thermostatic Radiator Valves not working
If you’ve turned on your heating, and within half an hour you notice that some radiators are hotter than others – then a common suggestion you might hear is that you need to “Balance you Radiators”.
Balancing Radiators is the age old idea of taking water from one radiator that is working perfectly and trying to give it to one that is not. It’s another common “solution” thrown out by plumbers to a problem that again goes back to the issue of a poor flow rate – a problem you will never have with Oxyvent.
What is balancing?
Balancing is done by closing the valves on perfectly working radiators, to try and get the other ones to heat up better. This is usually followed by going back and forth, tweaking and tinkering with radiator valves until it feels like an improvement. But usually this solution is only temporary, because if your system has a poor flow rate – you’ll be back at square one before you know it. What makes it even more baffling is that there are actually no regulations, rule books, certification or standards for balancing radiators. It is literally left up to each individual’s discretion and is completely trial and error.
Well one thing we can tell you about Balancing Radiators is that independent tests have shown that the power output fluctuates in temperature so much, that the end result is still poor thermal comfort and a waste of fuel. If only there was an easier solution…!
The Oxyvent System is self- Balancing and increase your heating systems flow rate by up to 70%, with all radiators valves left fully open which also help prevent the build-up of sludge.
Rooms will heat up faster and evenly, providing your home or business with a higher comfort level and eliminate maintenance costs from Plumbers.
Save time and up to 30% on your fuel bills with Oxyvent.

The most common setting for room stats is 21°C. this setting is needed to bring the room to a near comfortable temperature.
With the Oxyvent Tank installed the room stats can be reduced down to 19°C without losing your comfort. Experts have said that by reducing the room temperature stat by 1°C you can save 10% in fuel.
If you reduce your room stat to 19°C and feel uncomfortable then you need an Oxyvent Tank to increase Thermal Comfort.
