Hi, I recently moved into a new home and the radiators don't seem to be getting hot enough particularly in the living room. The radiators above the kitchen where the boiler is installed do seem to get hotter than most but those in the living room (other side of house) and the hallway seem coolest. That said there is one in the attic room which is only getting warm too. Is it possible to check easily whether the pump is working in the boiler?

I've tried turning off all the radiators except the living room and that didn't make any difference. I've bled the radiators (they didn't need it), and have increased the pressure in the system to 1.5 but still we are chilly :?

I'm starting to think I need to get the system flushed but that will be expensive so thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas first. The hot water is working fine by the way.

Thanks in advance for suggestions

Matt
