Question

Help with bleeding baseboard heat system


I was told to 'bleed' each baseboard by simply turning the slotted screw on the small round valve (?) on the left side of each rooms baseboard heater. I have a gas system. I was told to open the unscrew until the water started coming out. I did this in 6 rooms (a ranch), none of the water was 'hot' or even warm. Is that because I have my heat set at 63-65? at 66 I can finally feel a little warmth on the bathroom baseboard, but the bathroom is still very cold, the toilet seat has never been warm or not cold. Do I need a regular plumber or a heating specialist or a gas person?
thanks anyone

A heating company.

Your system pressure may be too low.

If you know where the pressure guage is on the boiler, look at it.
Generally, you want it between 12 and 18PSIG.

And toilet seats are not warm at 65.
