Did you know that bleeding your radiators can actually save you money in the long run by increasing the efficiency on your heating system? If you want to bleed your heated towel rail yourself without calling anyone out but aren’t sure how to do it, then make sure you take a look at this video.
Jimmy the plumber takes you through the process from beginning to end, showing you how easy it can be. Really, all you need is a radiator key (or flathead screwdriver) and a small cloth.
An important thing you get to see and hear close up is the sound of air escaping from the radiator. You can actually hear when the hiss stops and take that as the cue to tighten up the bleed valve again. This video is useful as it shows you close up!
Jimmy also shares a couple of tips to make this process even easier! This guide is also applicable to regular radiators, as Jimmy mentions in the video. Enjoy.
