Bleeding a radiator

9 posts in this topic

Hello all,

 

I have a technical question: Does anyone know whether radiators have to be on and warm when bleeding them?

Advance thanks for useful answers.

It is based on water pressure, not in temperature.  While different temperature might slightly change the pressure, it is not really that relevant.   However, if the pump is not switched on and there is no water circulation, you might have issues bleeding them depending on the layout.   It is easier to bleed them with the valve open.

Oh my goodness me I made a boo boo. Sorry Frau Fruit, who'd've thunk there are 'many' existing threads on bleeding a radiator. Please accept my sincerest apologies. Won't happen again.

Thanks Krieg, that's a big help. I wanted to try it today but thought it might not work because the heating is not on. Now I've got my work cut out for tomorrow.

Cheers and happy Weekend - Berlin will probably be sunny. Lucky us!

Just in case...for Americans on here ( not you!! ), " bleeding " is also Brit slang for " bloody ", which is slang for -erm, I forget! Erm, when you´re swearing..
