: : I hear gurgling noise in my baseboard water heater pipe and I suspect it is air in the pipe. How do I remove the air in the pipe?

: Most baseboard heating systems will have purge valves on the piping at the boiler. Occaisionally, you will find bleeders under the rad covers.
: Good Luck. e-plumber

I've tried the bleeder but only a small amount of air escapes (say about 5-10 seconds) and then nothing. No water and no air sound. I tried again in 20 minutes, same thing, but still no water. After trying to purge the air, now the entire baseboard is cold when before at least some of it got warm before. This is the master bedroom on the 2nd floor, and is probably the furthest distance from the furnace. When I feel the pipes in the basement, the loop pipe is hot and the pipes leading up to the room are hot but it's not getting all the way up. The other 3 rooms upstairs are OK.
