BB might be a genius...
Last night I got home, cranked the thermo from 62 to 72, and got
aggravated as the boiler went to 190 degrees, but the radiators were
I figured what the hell, bleed all of the radiators again, what do I
have to lose?
NONE of the radiators had any air in them at all - still, I drained
about 6 oz. from each one - all of them spit out clear, hot water.
That did nothing, I figured...but 10 minuted later, one of the luke
warm radiators became too hot to touch! Then the temp started to rise!
Another 20 minutes, and the temp in the house was 75 degrees!
I remain confused - if that bleeding of water made something happen,
how? (I am not complaining, mind you...)
The system is essentially a big loop that runs back trhough the boiler
that keeps all the radiators hot - how does air get introduced? And
what can I do to keep this from happening? (I am not convinced that I
fixed anything - I can see myself having to bleed 8 radiators every day
to get them as hot as they were yesterday...)
I hope when I get home from work and go from 62 to 72, that they will
My fingers are crossed....
