      I was wondering if someone could help me.
      I have recently moved to an old house and seem to have a problem with air in my central heating system. This seems to be concentrated to two small radiators upstairs.
      I have to bleed at least one of them every day. When I bleed them most of the water is clear, sometimes a small amount of black water comes out first though.

      It’s an open vented pumped system with a holding tank and header tank in the loft, a Potterton Suprima boiler in the garage and a coil Emersion Tank on the first floor. The hot water and heating are triggered by a central control unit and the room temprature by a thermostat (both in the hall)
      There are 5 rads upstairs and 4 downstairs. There is no pressure gauge which is why I think it must be an open vented system.

      The boiler seems to make a lot of vibration noise when it’s operating. Is this connected?
      Is there something I can do because when there is a lot of air in the system it seems to affect the effectiveness of the heating in the whole house

      Yes, you can make sure the system is filled to the top and the air is released from the radiation.
