We just purchased a home with the third floor that has been recently renovated. The heating for the third floor is baseboard hot water. The rest of the house is radiators. The rest of the house gets hot, but the third floor doesn't. The pipes going to the third floor branch off the main system in the basement. The new pipes start to get hot in the basement, but only for a few feet. The rest is cold. Must I bleed just the new pipes? If so, how?

Copper finned baseboard and radiators are not recommended together, unlesss it has a seperate zone with a seperate thermostat. Look on the baseboards to see if there is a bleeder ell. Is your circulator pump running? Hopefully Harold wioll post with his links.

There appears to be a valve at the end of what I think is the return of the new piping. I assume this is the bleeder valve.
