How long should it take for the radiators to start getting warm?

+3 votes

Switched central heating on, set thermostat, a bit of time has elapsed (maybe a quarter of an hour), not feeling any difference yet.  No thermostatic valves on any of the radiators. 

Never open doors if you don't dare to walk on through ...

I will have to ask my boyfriend who will call in an hour.  I hope it is not too cold there. Here I would freeze as it is under 20F.  But have natural gas heat so had the furnace man in for a check. Maybe its your boiler?  I remember my bf had to get a new one last year. There are probably furnace people who check them where you are in England. Check google. Not good to be cold in winter!

It can't be the boiler as I just washed some dishes and the hot water works fine.  Plus I had a gas engineer check the boiler earlier this year and he didn't spot any problems.
Ok, that is good to know. Will get back to you soon when Paul called me very soon.
Thank you.
Is there a key on the top end of the radiator that you could open and close to let air out? That could help.  Also he has an electric hot water tank and a boiler. He said if none of your radiators are not working it still can be the boiler. Here's a link;
