When bleeding radiators which one should you start with if there is an order. I have always bled radomly but I might have not been doing the right thing.

Start from the lowest and work upwards. Make sure the pump is not running i.e. system off.

Always start with the radiator furthest away from the boiler.

It does not really matter a great deal unless re-filling after a drain down.

Fit the automatic bleed valves and you'll never have to do it again.

If your system needs frequent bleeding you need to investigate the underlying cause before more serious problems occur. A properly maintained system, even an old one should not require venting on a regular basis. If you are finding that you need to do it often then autovalves will vent it but that is treating the symptoms not the cause.

Keep plenty of mopping up equipment handy, just in case of errors or spillages.
