    • Find the bleed valve, its usually a small red or silver handle that fits into the key, and should be located on one side of the radiator.
    • Ensure you have a cloth or small bucket to catch any leaking water.
    • The radiators normally come with a bleed key or a radiator key, if you cannot locate it, your nearest builders merchants should have one.
    • Bleed the radiator by inserting the radiator key and slowly turning it, until you hear a hissing sound, when you can see water dribbling out, the air locks will start escaping.
  • Once water has dribbled out, tighten the valve back to its original position, carefully as the water can be boiling hot.
