Bleeding Hot Water System
Posted by John Macin on December 21, 2003 at 14:22:05:

Hi, I have a gas boiler hot water system with baseboards that do not have bleeders. Some of the baseboards in the upper-floor rooms are not getting warm at all. I suspect I need to bleed the air.

There are purge valves in the boiler room on the pipes that bring the water back to the boiler. (These purge valves look just like the picture above).

Must I use a professional to bleed? Could anyone give me instructions on how to do this?

Thanks very much,
John
