Bleed the heater properlyWhen the power of the radiator wears off, good advice does not (always) have to be expensive. Rather, it is sufficient to have a vent key and a small container at hand.
Because it is quite possible that air is in the pipes of the radiator.
If this is indeed the case, it is important to vent the heater quickly.
Only then can an efficient heat output be achieved, which can also reduce energy costs. Air in the radiator can be recognized by the fact that they do not get evenly warm and produce bubbling noises.
Air and water
To ventilate the heater properly, you need a small vessel, a vent key and possibly a cloth. Before starting to bleed, the radiator should be completely turned on. Then use the vent key to open the vent valve located at the top of the radiator. As soon as the key is turned, whistling noises are audible.
This is the air that escapes from the radiator. It can also happen that something
Water escapes, which is collected by the vessel. Even if the water in a jet flows out of the radiator, and not just drips out, this is completely normal and can vary from heating system to heating system. As soon as there is no more air, only water, the radiator is completely vented.
Basically, there should be no more air in the radiator
are located. If gurgling sounds continue, the process can be repeated. Afterwards, the full power of the radiator is completely restored after venting.
Energy saving is in the foreground
However, if you can hear the sound of a blubber, or if the radiator does not get really hot even after a long heating period, it may be because you have to top up with water. The water is refilled directly at the heating system.
Especially before the heating season in autumn, it makes sense to ventilate the heating properly, as this can significantly reduce energy costs and heating costs. Because when there is air in the radiators, the energy consumption also increases automatically.
