Hi, not sure if this is the correct ng, please point me in the right
direction if it isn't.
I have a problem with the radiators in my house. I have just moved in so am
not sure of the system. I basically have to bleed the radiators upstairs
every few days to keep them hot. The air pressure coming out seems to be
getting lower. There is a gauge on the boiler that was at about 1.5 bar but
it has gone down to below 1 bar now. Does this mean it is a sealed system?
How do I increase the pressure? Presumably I need to add some water
somewhere to replace all that air that I've been taking out!
The highest radiator is only a couple of metres above the boiler (boiler up
high on ground floor and only have two floors). The gauge reads about 0.2 -
0.3 bar (3 - 4 psi), but I'm sure it was on about 1 bar when I first moved
in (about 15 psi).
Where do I add the water? There are six pipes coming out the bottom of the
boiler that just go straight down and into the floor. We don't have a
hot-water tank, it heats the water as it's used.
