Ravenheat Boiler (low perssure after bleeding)
 
HI

Just moved into a new house and noticed that some of the radiators were cold at the top so i bought a bleed key and bled the radiators. This went fine until i got to the two radiators in the attic. The first one went okay but the second one the air just kept coming out and no water came out. I ended up leaving it but now when i check the boiler the pressure has dropped between 0 & 1 and theres a note on the boiler saying that the pressure should be a 1 bar minimum at all times. I'm trying to find out how i would go about fixing this, is it something i can do myself or do i have to get some one in, also will it damage the system having the pressure so low?:furious:

Any help would be appreciated

Is this a steam system?

Not sure How would i know?

I managed to fix the pressure problem last night. I'm not really clued up on boilers but it was as easy as turning a tap under the kitchen units.

I still have the problem with the two radiator up in the attic though. One is on and is reasonably warm and the other has very little heat in it and it's freezing up here.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Do you have circulators? Hot water will have them, steam will not.
