Moving A Radiator Across A Room
1 00:00:05,340 --> 00:00:11,330 Hi and welcome to this Trade Radiators video. In this video we're looking at the ins & outs 2 00:00:11,330 --> 00:00:17,570 of moving a radiator from this wall (where its in the wrong place) to underneath a window 3 00:00:17,570 --> 00:00:20,270 as this is where cold air comes in. 4 00:00:20,270 --> 00:00:31,50 Now if you've watched previous videos you'll know how to drain a system and mark a radiator route. This video is more about the small jobs you to carry out in preparation. 5 00:00:31,50 --> 00:00:43,660 And the small things which make every job different. 6 00:00:43,660 --> 00:00:49,680 We need to move this bed to know how to plan our move. 7 00:00:49,720 --> 00:01:08,830 I hope you enjoy this video and wish me luck. Looking closely we see the boards run this way, and with the nails here, it tells me the rafters are right below me and that I can run my pipe here. 8 00:01:08,830 --> 00:01:26,969 I'll be using inflexible plastic pipe which is perfectly fine to have in heating systems and is within regulation. To make things look nice, I'll have copper stubs coming up from the floor. 9 00:01:26,969 --> 00:01:38,509 Hopefully I can just lift this board and move the pipe underneath 10 00:01:38,509 --> 00:01:50,310 The owners want to keep the floorboards visible, so we have to do everything we can to make sure they don't get damaged. 11 00:01:50,310 --> 00:02:03,69 I'll grab my tools and we'll see what is underneath. An important aspect here is to choose where we want to cut in. 12 00:02:03,69 --> 00:02:09,759 I want to cut my line as close to the nails as possible. 13 00:02:09,759 --> 00:02:12,90 so when we put the boards back they'll still have support. 14 00:02:38,500 --> 00:02:40,500 Just a little bit of wiggling to be careful. 15 00:02:48,480 --> 00:02:54,900 Now we have the old floorboard out and you can see the beam here for support. 16 00:02:58,220 --> 00:03:04,240 We can see someone has already worked on the boards here. I can prise these boards instead of making new cuts. 17 00:03:15,280 --> 00:03:21,680 While the system drains I take this rad out and measure it. 18 00:03:22,640 --> 00:03:26,820 To measure the width and know where we'll be taking the floorboard out. 19 00:03:34,580 --> 00:03:42,360 I don't want to take up too much, so we'll do our best to take out the smallest. 20 00:03:45,860 --> 00:03:52,20 The customer's insisted they want the radiator under the window but there it a plug underneath. 21 00:03:56,280 --> 00:04:03,720 I've said it is not best to put a radiator over one, but they have insisted. 22 00:04:10,80 --> 00:04:16,760 I'm measuring up to know where to hang on the wall. 23 00:04:16,800 --> 00:04:23,240 We've previously done videos on hanging radiators, so we'll watch me do this in stop motion. 24 00:04:32,600 --> 00:04:35,120 So we have our radiator in a position where we want it. 25 00:04:35,120 --> 00:04:39,740 I have two pieces of copper here we shall use as stubs to our valves. 26 00:04:43,162 --> 00:04:45,602 I pop this here like so 27 00:04:47,540 --> 00:04:53,700 Then measure next to it for the hole we'll drill. 28 00:04:54,320 --> 00:04:59,620 I'll do that on the other site and then drill. 29 00:05:16,240 --> 00:05:22,920 We put our value on like so and our pipe goes straight down. 30 00:05:22,263 --> 00:05:24,863 See how good that looks. 31 00:05:24,863 --> 00:05:26,908 I'll do it on the other side now. 32 00:05:31,584 --> 00:05:34,624 We now have our two pipes in nice and straight. 33 00:05:39,436 --> 00:05:44,996 Usually I'll take up this board as it is one board in and gives me room. 34 00:05:48,720 --> 00:05:53,784 Now the second board was previously removed. We'll lift this to cause less mess. 35 00:06:11,240 --> 00:06:14,440 Let's take a closer look now that the board is up. 36 00:06:20,660 --> 00:06:23,340 If you look under here you can see where our pipe is going and where to get the pushfit on. 37 00:06:28,960 --> 00:06:33,160 We'll pop a hole here, then here, then two here and two here to link our pipes up. 38 00:06:41,40 --> 00:06:46,920 It's important to keep any holes low enough down so no nails cause damage. 39 00:06:48,115 --> 00:06:52,195 I'm now feeding the pipe through, making sure I don't kink it. 40 00:06:55,399 --> 00:07:00,799 I'll be going from the far pipe on the left to this pipe on the right. 41 00:07:00,80 --> 00:07:04,260 It has a URT valve, which means it doesn't matter which way the flow is. 42 00:07:05,800 --> 00:07:08,320 If you're on your own you may need help with this part. 43 00:07:21,913 --> 00:07:24,953 Now I have the pipe here I can pop the insert in. 44 00:07:36,601 --> 00:07:41,41 I'll get my hand under, feel for the pipe and push it right up. It will look like this 45 00:07:58,263 --> 00:08:02,343 I can thread my pipe underneath for the second radiator pipe. 46 00:08:14,132 --> 00:08:19,492 We're doing the same here, with putting the insert on and placing under the pipe. 47 00:08:26,240 --> 00:08:32,480 You can see our connections. Now we need to cut the pipe and make our connections here and here. 48 00:08:47,189 --> 00:08:54,189 We've got the pipework back in. Before putting the boards back down, I recommend taking a spanner and tightening everything up. 49 00:08:56,856 --> 00:09:01,576 Before turning the heating system on to make sure everything works ok. 50 00:09:02,685 --> 00:09:08,925 As soon as you've done that, pop the boards back in and clean up the room so it looks more like... 51 00:09:10,133 --> 00:09:17,933 This! There we go. We have our new radiator in, our boards in, the beds back and everything looks great. 52 00:09:23,748 --> 00:09:30,748 I hope you found today's video helpful it you're moving a radiator in a room or sometimes this can work from one side of a wall to another. 53 00:09:35,67 --> 00:09:42,787 This method or removal can be very beneficial if you're considering any work on your heating system. 54 00:09:42,293 --> 00:09:48,213 If you need anymore help, please visit the Trade Radiators site and thanks for watching. 55 00:09:49,750 --> 00:09:49,250 Bye Bye
