which radiator valve is better ? automatic or manual for baseboard heating system?


Dear barbev:

I'm not sure exactly which radiator valve that you are referring to for your baseboard heating system, so let me run down all of the valves for you:

o Bleeder valves (for purging air out of the system): these should be manual valves.

o Make-up water valve (for allowing water to come into the system to replace lost water): this valve should be an automatic valve.

o Pressure relief valve (for releasing water when the system pressure becomes to high): this valve should be an automatic valve.

o Zone valves (for shutting off water to a particular heating zone): there are the automatic valves that are controlled by the thermostats for the various zones, and then there are also manual valves which allow you to shut off zones independently.

If this doesn't answer your questions, just let us know.
