Vehicle Heater and Industrial Heater Repair Specialist

Newquay Radiators and Exeter Radiators have been repairing Heaters since 1982.

Our highly trained technicians have over 100 years experience between them and they carry out each job to a high standard.

Whilst their aim is to meet customer requirements, they also provide advice on any options which could improve the performance, efficiency and longevity of the heater.
