    Perhaps consider a flush before fitting new radiators I would imagine some sort of sludge.

    there ok but i would ignore the warranty, make sure you inspect them for damage tho

    Ignore because they're not likely to honour it, or because warranties on rads not likely to be required?

    both as they will want system water tests and they will blame it on corrosion

    If your house warm enough on single rads theres no point changing them to doubles , just keep them as singles .

    i thought doubles were cheaper to run [in the long term ]

    On what basis, it’s based on heat loss and correct sizing
