How do you bleed baseboard heaters?

Answer

First make sure the heat system is off, then start at the top floor in your house and by using the key that comes with the radiators you will open the little valve on the side of the heater. You will want to have a pot to catch the water and as you turn the key you will hear air hissing, just let the air come out until water comes out then tighten it up and go to the next one until you work your way down to the ground floor.

You will need to start by taking the key and open the bleeder valve while the system is running. When you only have water and no air coming out you will then need to go and bleed the air off your furnace. Repeat this in a few days.
