Yes the air that you let out of the radiator is methane gas, you can fit a automatic air vent to replace the manual type if it’s a continual problem with air. If there are no leeks in your system there should be no problem with sludge this is just a money making term for plumbers! We work on commercial heating systems that are 50 years + & if the pumps are ok then the heating is still working as good as the day there were installed!

Andy. A cheap check for leaks is monitor water intake (tie up the ballcock). If it's not a leak, and the offending rad is close to/above the burner, consider fitting a air vent. If the heat distribution in the rads is good, I'd leave cleaning until last...

Its from the rust forming inside the radiators.
Off topic I know but a couple of lads died when they entered an anchor chain locker which was sealed and the gas given off from the chain rusting killed them. Its on the MAIB site somewhere.
