Moving a radiator


Postby Dean62 » Mon Jul 19, 2010 12:33 pm

I have created a kitchen/diner. I've taken out the existing radiators that were fixed to the wall that has been taken out and I want to move the radiator to a different wall. So it is just a case of extending the existing pipework for the radiator to the new location which I could do myself.

But do I have to use a CORGI registered tradesman to do this job?

Dean62,
No corgi needed unless you open the gas boiler.

Well it's not CORGI now, its Gassafe register.

No need to be Gassafe registered, for moving a radiator.

EVA - why ?

It's water, not gas.

i can see why eva would think of a gas safe registered tradesperson, but it's not necessary unless he needs to work on the boiler as well. (refilling the system, either from header tank, of filling loop or built-in boiler filling loop is not legally considered work)
