TRV Valves not Working on any Radiators?

Postby sva » Thu Sep 07, 2017 7:02 am

Hi all

We’ve had this issue since we moved in around 2 years ago, none of the TRV valves work on the radiators - that’s 6 in total.

I’ve had a cursory look and the pins don’t seem stuck, I can push them down and they pop back up.

We had a guy in and he said the best thing to do would be to isnstall a thermostat downstairs to control the heat of all of them - however there are some rooms we want to switch off or keep very low.

What are the chances of all TRVs going? How much would it be to replace them? Could it be something else?
