Different temperatures in different rooms

While your central heating system should work to distribute heat evenly around your home, from time to time it can become unbalanced.

If you haven’t programmed your system to heat the different zones of your home independently, follow these steps below to redress the balance:

Close the valve
Heating up in a domino effect, the radiators that are nearest to the boiler will heat first and, most likely, be warmer.
To prevent these radiators from hogging the heat, partially close their lockshield valves. This will allow more hot water to flow to the radiators further away.

Use radiator thermometers
If you have radiator thermometers you can adjust each radiator in the order in which they heat up. To do this turn off the lockshield valve, place a thermometer at either end of the radiator and open the valve slowly until the temperature at either end is close to being the same.

If you don’t have radiator thermometers you can gradually adjust the lockshield valves on each radiator manually. Aim to reduce the flow of hot water in the warmest rooms and increase it in the coldest rooms.

This is the unique identifier for your gas supply point and the identity of the current registered gas supplier at your property.

Gold stars for Craig and Conor. They were courteous, friendly and efficient, worked non-stop, did not take a lunch break, only a cup of coffee whilst they worked, which they thanked me for.They had covered the floor in sheeting and all was clean and tidy before they left. …Great job. Thank you.
