Your radiator will need bleeding if the top of the radiator is significantly colder than the bottom. Make sure you know how to top up your system should it be necessary before you start as you may cause your system to shut down due to low pressure. It is rare that a radiator should need bleeding as modern systems do not require it like they did many years ago.

You will know if your radiator needs bleeding as when the heating is on the bottom of the radiator will be warm/hot and the top will be cool/cold. If the top of the radiator is warm/hot but the bottom is cold/cool then this is a different problem and not air in the radiator. If your not sure how to bleed them call an engineer.

If your radiator is suffering with cold spots, or your heating system is noisy when it fires up, this may mean you have air in the system. Bleeding the radiators may assist with this, however, it’s always a good idea to chat to a qualified engineer who might be able to recognise a fault.
