Hot Water Baseboard Air Bleeding?


Hot water baseboards are traditional cast iron radiators that are no longer common in the new constructions; they are mostly replaced with forced hot water baseboard style radiators. In order to function properly, the hot water baseboards need to be turned on air bleeding so that all the air gets out of the radiator and can then be filled with hot water.

To bleed air from a hot water baseboard, first turn the boiler off. Check if the self-feeding water valve is connected to the boiler. Then open all the valves that lead to the heating zones in the home. And finally, drain the water into a bucket.
