Flush a Radiator

A radiator is the part that keeps the heater cool. Once sludge and rust build up inside the radiator it becomes less effective and the performance of the heater becomes less efficient. A regular radiator flush can help maintain the heater and increase its lifespan.

A clean heater doesn’t just look nice it also works well. And if it works more efficiently, then it’s using less fuel. There are easy steps to flushing a radiator.

  • Make sure the power line is off.
  • Use an air compressor or a hair dryer to blow out dust.
  • Once the dust has been loosened, vacuum it out using a narrow nozzle or radiator brush.
  • Clean the radiator with warm soapy water.
  • Turn the radiator back on.

What to do When a Hot Water Heater is Not Working

When a hot water heater doesn’t work, especially during winter, it is frustrating. There can be many things wrong, including:

  1. Needs repairing.
  2. Needs to replace certain elements.
  3. Require changing of controls.

The traditional line voltage control water heater with 120, 208 and 240 volts of electricity can be repaired or parts replaced. However, the new microprocessor types might be difficult to repair and require a complete new unit.

Some things to keep in mind while performing any kind of self-servicing:

  • Use the wiring diagram supplied with or affixed to your water heater. If you are unable to locate a wiring diagram or are unaware of the wiring system, then contact your water heater’s manufacturer.
  • Become familiar with the operation of your multi-meter before undertaking any servicing project. Different meters allow measurement of voltage and resistance differently.
  • Switch off power before you start checking the control system.
  • Do not hesitate to call a professional contractor.
