I am just a homeowner looking to maintain my current system as long as possible without problems. We had a new heating system put in ten years ago. I noticed that when the heat came on last week, there was a pint/oily smell at first and the circulator pump was making a strange noise.
I have a Bell and Gosset pump and I lubricated it using the proper lubricant by putting about 5-7 drops in the two vertical funnels/straws on top. It does sound better than before, for now.
I was wondering if there is anything else I should do for the system?
I always bleed the radiators. Should I also drain the circulator pump by opening the valve located directly beneath it? If so, how much water should I allow to come out and once I drain it, is there anything I need to do like add water somehow?
Thank you very much,
