Our system is a gas hot water system. We have a "boiler" which sends hot water thru copper pipes thruout the house. This heating season we have notice the family room is a degree or two below the thermostat; in past years it is usually right on or a little higher.

We also have notice more of the water flowing sound when the pump comes on. Do we need to have the system "bled" to remove the air? could this be a cause of the temp being a little lower?

Yes, air displaces the hot water, which causes a drop in heating capacity.
