In order to ensure that the home is warm this Christmas season, make sure that the radiators are ready for winter. Since heating has not been used for while, air that has entered the system can form bubbles at the top of the radiator. Air can be let out by turning the radiator key in a valve at the top. If there are cold spots at the bottom or centre of the radiator, it is likely that sludge has built up and requires system flushing.
