Cleaning inside central heating radiater

I'm assuming your saying you have hot water heat and you're having trouble with the broiler or stoppage in the pipes leading from the boiler to your wall radiators. Every household boiler I've seen has been very old and isn't worth replacing. If you decide to replace it, you will be replacing more than just the boiler. You'll be replacing many copper lines as well. The solution is usually changing to some alternative style heating such as electric baseboard with individual thermostats.

What is the different between a direct and indirect meter

DIRECT HEAT METERING The direct metering is the most accurate and reliable system for measuring the amount of energy used by individual households for heating their homes. The solution is applicable only in heat systems with horizontal distribution pipes network or areas in which the heat transfer fluid is distributed to individual apartments or to industrial plants, by district heating or by an individual central unit servicing more buildings. The system is composed by a thermal energy meter, a motorized valve controlled by a programmable thermostat located inside the apartment, in this way the user can adjust the temperature of the household and determine the hours of heating being able to manage the system according to his specific needs. .

INDIRECT HEAT METERING The indirect metering is applied to the plants where the distribution of the heat transfer fluid is achieved through risers, which means that the pipes of fluid flowing through the radiators of the single apartments have more points adrift from the main system (risers) that feed the individual radiators, making it difficult to measure the flow rate of fluid that enters the apartment. For simplicity we use the example of a riser which feeds the radiator of a room and at the same time also the counterpart room located on the upper floor. In this case, the use of individual devices, defined as heat cost allocators, installed on each radiator within individual apartments allows to avoid the unfair solution for which heating costs are allocated in accordance with the size of the apartment. Based on the operating parameters of the radiator itself it is calculated, in an indirect way, the amount of heat that the radiator releases into the environment. The sum of the readings of all the radiators provides the total consumption of the apartment and, with all apartments equipped with devices set with homogeneous parameters, you can proceed with the allocation by individual apartment of the centralized system total heating costs.

Dodge over heats

When you replaced the thermostat, did you bleed the air out of the coolant lines? When I replaced my thermostat on my old car forgot to bleed the lines out so it kept overheating until I did, then it worked fine. The air in the lines messes up the thermostat somehow and can cause it not to work like it should.

Overheating no heater

Sounds like a sticky thermostat. That would prevent coolant from circulating through the radiator and heater box. Your engine would overheat while the heater blows cold air.

Replace the thermostat and thermostat gasket; it's a cheap fix you can probably handle yourself.

Good luck !
