    Hi

    I’ve been trying to balance my radiators and after the hearings been on for a 10 mins and settled most of the radiators are reaching around 50 degrees while 3 are just 26 degrees.

    question is do I restrict some of the ones reaching 50 degrees on the lock shield or open it to allow the water to flow faster round the system?

    thanks

    Restrict the rads that heat up quickest by their lockshields.

    Make sure the cool rads are fully open at valves.
