How To: Bleed a radiator

Your radiator can stop working if it has air in it, making your central heating appear broken. To release this air you need to bleed your radiators. To do this:

  • Find the valve at the end of the radiator
  • Carefully turn the valve, using a radiator key. Stop when you hear the air escaping.
  • When the valve starts to drip, tighten and close it
  • Check your water pressure

Lower water pressure is a common problem, which can cause boilers to function improperly. A reduction in water pressure can be caused by bleeding your radiators, or by a leak in your boiler system.

To check the pressure, you can use the water pressure indicator. This should be located on the front of your boiler. It could be either displayed digitally or by a dial.

The indicator should read somewhere between 1-2 bars of atmospheric pressure. If it is below this, your boiler needs refilling.

How To: increase water pressure

  • Find the cold water feed to your boiler
  • Locate the small tap on your cold water feed. Carefully turn this, until your boiler pressure indicator increases to read between one and two.
  • When it reads between one and two, close the tap
  • Check to see if your boiler has started working

Sometimes these two checks are all that is needed to get your central heating working again.

So, you should carry these out before contacting an engineer. If however, you are struggling with this and need extra assistance, we will gladly support you.

Moreover, if these checks have not resolved your central heating issues, and you are still experiencing problems, then please contact us.

We will strive to locate the cause/s, and find the solution.
