    Could someone let me know how much it would cost to have thermostat controls put on eight radiators and what has to be done.

    many thanks

    8 x Cost of TRV £5-20
    1 X bottle of inhibitor £8-20
    4-8 hours of the engineers time £25-£60

    add it all together. £148-660

    now you know why its so hard for us to give prices ;)

    thanks for replies. I'll be getting it done in the Spring as there doesn't seem to be any control on the ones I have at the moment, it's either full on or off completely if I turn the knob fully. Just opening it a little and it's full on again.

    Didn't realise it was so much work though, not to mention all the tea :)

    Installing thermostatic valves won't alter that much; they react to roomtemperature and turn the whole rad off and on.
