hot water

Dont know just what you have there. Could be at the end of all the baseboard's look and see if you have a small like valve that has a screw in the top of it. If you open this a little it should let the air out when you get water shut it off. You can also have a small valve that has a small square like top. For this you need the key to open it up and let the air out. you have to go around to all of them till you get water out of them. and make sure that water is turned on at the auto fill that you should have there.

Like Ed says, check the pressure in the system. Should be at least 10 psi. Then look for the bleeders. They could be on each piece of baseboard or you could have a more elaborate system. If you have the baseboard bleeders, turn the thermostat back before you bleed them to be sure the air is all in the baseboard.
