Baseboard Water heating system question - hmedic


New to the site, but looks like what I am looking for. I cant figure out how to start a new post, unless I just did it without knowing it. Here is what I got - I am a contractor widening door ways for a disabled veteran. He failed to inform me before we traveled out here for the week that he has baseboard water heat. I get how it works through all the stuff on here and am not affraid to cut and move copper lines, but on four of the doors I am widening they have baseboarrd heat in the way when I move the door opening over the 5-10 inches I need to in order to achieve the widening I need to. So I am needing to cut the lines and move them each closerby 5 -10 inches, not a ton, but I am assuming I need to shut off these vaules at the boiler??? Drain the system??? then cut the lines and make my changes??? then refill the lines - I assume this is done at the hose spickot valve by the boiler???? purge the air from each of these little screws on the 90's at the baseboards???? - then is it good????

On the main index page (Boilers - Home Heating Steam and Hot Water Systems) there is a little yellow box above the word Boilers that reads, + Post New Thread Click on that "button" to open a new thread.

In essence what you wrote is the procedure but in practice it is a bit more complex. We would need to see several pictures of the existing system and all the piping to give detailed instructions.
