Recommendations of a company to install radiators

Question

We are replacing three radiators in our flat which either no longer work at all or very inefficiently. Can anyone recommend a company that can install new radiators efficently and for a resonable cost? Thank you, James

Knowing where you are might help.

Have had good results by picking local plumbers out of Yellow Pages.

What kind of radiator are you talking about?
Assuming that it is a normal central heating radiator fired by gas or mazout it is hard to understand how it might not work. All it is is a container for water which has been heated and pumped round the system. So long as the pump operates correctly (are other radiators getting heat?) I would be looking at what the problem might be before setting out to replace them.
Perhaps describing the symptoms might get you some advice.

KASSEISTAMPER might not be far from the truth there. Maybe all you need to do is bleed the radiators and let some more water into the system.

"Flat" can mean shared heating system as well. Our plumber said new radiators are smaller, but certainly not better in terms of heating efficiency.

If the radiators have thermostats it might be the thermostats - my mum in the UK just had three thermostats replaced on radiators that weren't working properly.

Agree with the others, you probably have a pump / circulation or thermostat problem. Radiators don't normally "break".

Also, if you're in a flat, you should talk to the other people in the building to see if there is potentially a problem with the heating in the building as a whole, rather than just your three radiators.

Rather than judging what the issue is when you don’t know what’s been tried or the system manybesomeone could suggest a good plumber or chauffagist

Thank you for the comments. We live in a flat near Montgomery and the radiators are old and have given up repairing them. As the last person says it would be good to know about anyone reliable as our experience so far is we have approached companies that have failed to turn up or provided us with very high quotes.
