All my radiators are hot at the top and cold at the bottom.

Customer Question

All my radiators are hot at the top and cold at the bottom. I know that when they are hot at the bottom and cold at the top i should bleed them, but what should I do in these circumstances?

Hi my name is Brian. This is a circulation problem often caused by the design of the heating system. Did you have the system Power flushed or just chemically flushed? is there a bypass valve on the system if yes turn it down. turn the heating pump up to number three. Saying all this but radiators are always a lot cooler at the bottom.
