    Cold Hotwater Base

    Thanks, I have put a access panel in the ceiling. The attic at peak 5 feet tall. I did tho prepare that space to add central air to the 2nd floor, ran all my lines inside the interior wall cavity to basement. Bought this house very cheap and plans are to refinish it and move out of town or...

    Cold Hotwater Base

    Nothing on 3rd floor. But a old attic I don’t use and removed staircase to to expand master bedroom. I do plan on taking a rad or two down to basement to provide a little heat for that area. Yes I do have bleeders on the return side. I actually just bled them again here a few hours ago...

    Right. Because I’ve never adjusted the control on individual rads. Just left them wide open. Except in the old room that we’re unused. Still I have a fellow fireman and former HVAC Tech that will be stopping by to look and plan a total re-plum next spring.

    Closed the valve on the CI Rads downstairs and cracked open just a hair. Rad is getting plenty warm enough and it is diverting hot water to the new rads. Leaving heat turned up a while to see how well it works. But That trick is working alittle.

    Yes, when I refilled the system I went around to each CI Rad, and new HWBase and left bleeder wide open until the new water ran steadily with no air sputtering.

    Jeff, I am going to set my 1st floor rads to half open position to see if that boots water upstairs. They are all set to full open now.

    Cold Hotwater Base

    Diehard, I stated I was incorrect because I thought the circulator pump would be on the Feed line not on the return. (learning as I go) When you asked about the arrow direction that’s when I realized I was backwards on how the boiler works. I can tell which lines go up to second floor. This...

    Cold Hotwater Base

    Took several photos for you guys. I was incorrect. The curculator pump photo is included and yes it is pointing down or back towards boiler. The hot feed line and cold return lines runs Tee at the boiler and run to the front of the house and rear of the house. And if you can see in the...

    The boiler is in the center of the house. So yes they have lines coming back, and going to each direction of the home. The line with the ? is a branch off of that. On the CI Radiator, the return is back on the left, you can’t see it too well from that photo.

    1/2” line on top is the fresh water feed. Expansion tank is located on rear of boiler, can be seen on last picture on bottom left. The hot feed line is the copper line coming out from the left side with the quarter turn valve. The return in the cast iron line going into the top back right...

    There is a picture of how the lines come off the main line. There is a main feed line with a line going to each heating device. Then there is a main return line picking up each return line from each heating device. Also posted two different views of the boiler.

    Cold Hotwater Base

    Correct. A line up and a line back. Will post a picture here shortly. Boiler runs off one thermo on first floor. Before remodel cast iron rads did get to temp on 2nd floor. The new hot water base does have a bleeder valve on the return side of the baseboard.

    Coming off the boiler there is a main line that runs the length of the basement with each heating line branching off.
