CENTRAL HEATING


Postby alan.brown17 » Sun Jan 25, 2009 10:52 am

2 OF MY RADIATORS ON THE GROUND FLOOR WILL ONLY GET JUST OFF COLD I HAVE HAD A NEW BOILER FITTED AND IT IS STILL THE SAME
I USED TO GET THE SYSTEM GOING (JUST) BY LETTING THE AIR OUT THE RADIATORS BUT NOT THIS TIME .THE 2 RADS IN QESTION ARE ON THE SAME DROPPER
I CAN GET THE RADS HOT BY UNDOING THE VENT ON THE FURTHEST AWAY FROM THE BOILER (COLD RAD) AND LETING THE WATER RUN FOR ABOUT 30MINS INTO A BUCKET,THIS THEN LETS THE HOT WATER IN TO THE RADS.
BUT THEY ONLY STAY HOT FOR A FEW HRS.
CAN ANYONE HELP.
MY BOILER IS A POTTERTON CONDENCING BOILER

Hi Alan,

The rads need balancing, time to google.
