    Is it possible that a radiator cannot be turned off?

    We just bought a big house and the radiators are controlled centrally, as you'd expect, but it doesn't appear that the knobs adjust the heat output so we can't heat the house piecemeal. We intend on re-plumbing the house but this is a huge problem in the interim. Thanks.

    valiant EcoTEC radiator temp

    Thanks in advance. I have a valiant EcoTEC whilst the flow temp is set to 70 the heating flow only reaches a max of 45 when heating is demanded. (I can use chimney sweep mode to get to 70) but it means roads are never hot enough to warm house and boiler always on. does this seem right?? Any ideas

    New bleed valve or new radiator?

    Our radiator is leaking from around the bleed valve. Not sure if the damage around the valve is superficial and it could be fixed by replacing the bleed valve or if we need a new radiator. Would appreciate any advice!
