Having a gas boiler in your home offers many advantages, but it also requires control and maintenance, like any other electrical appliance. To prevent any incidents in the home and to prolong the life of the boiler, we recommend you leave cleaning, fault finding or repairs, to a qualified technician.
On of the necessary tasks to ensure that the heating system works well is bleeding the radiators. This should be done when the water circulates through the heating circuit makes funny noises in the radiators. These noises are caused by an air bubble that has become trapped between the panels and reverberates due to friction as the liquid passes through. To remove this air bubble, you should open a small valve that you'll find on the top.
To remove the air from the radiator, prepare a container to hold the water. Then, open the bleeder valve very slowly by barely half a turn - if you open it completely, the water would flood out of the radiator - until you hear the classic whistle of air when the pressure comes out. When water starts dripping, close the bleeder valve immediately. Repeat this, taking great care as many times as necessary to remove the air bubbles. Air doesn't come out of every radiator and sometimes you'll only hear the whistle of the air.
Once the air has been removed from the circuit, open the stopcock to fill the circuit and so reach the right level of pressure. To clean, you must remove the dust, the fluff and the grease stuck to the radiator. One way of putting an end to these impurities is to run a vacuum cleaner with the narrowest nozzle it has over the surface.
