Hot Water Radiators


I rencently refill my hot radiator system in my three story home, and found that now my front living room, front 2nd fl bedroom, and front 3rd fl bedroom is not getting hot, after bleeding radiators. I also have radiators in my remodeled bathroom, and back room, that is not getting hot. All others, kitchen, dining room, middle 2nd fl bedroom, and 3rd fl bedroom is hot. What should I do?

Hot Water Radiators


What type of steam system do you have? One pipe to each radiator or two pipes? Is there a circulation pump?

Was it working before you filled it?

How did you fill it and how did you determine how it should be filled?

Do you have an instruction manual for your heating system?

Hot Water Radiators


main thing is bleed with the system off...no circ running just let the auto RED pressure reg water feed pressure push the air out. then go around to each radiator closest to the boiler first then work your way up....with a cold boiler you should have a 10lb to 12lb reading on the boiler guage....might want to drain the expansion tank if you can valve it and dump the water inside before restarting it up
