I assume it is steam heat but I would like you to confirm that. What is the brand and model of the vent you bought? Usually a hot water radiator wil lonly get hot at the bottom when air is trapped in it. A steam radiator usually gets hot from one side toward the other but not all the way when it has a vent problem. Give us a little more info.
