I have a house that is heated with radiators. The top floors of the
house get warm, too warm where they have windows open to cool off. In the
basement we have a lady living there who complains of cold. I went there and
it does seem a little cooler. The radiators around throw off a bit of heat,
but they are not really hot to the touch, more like hot bath water. I am not
that familiar with this type of heating. Would I be best increasing the
water temp at the boiler? I was even going to suggest to her to put a small
fan at the base of the radiator to blow the heat off the radiator and
disperse the heat quicker around the apartment.
Long term I might see about putting a gas fire there or a bigger
radiator. Does anyone have any advice as we want to make her happy but in
the middle of water I can't jeopardize the heating system with upgrades.
