I have recently moved and the living room seems to be taking an excessively
long time to heat up compared to the rest of the house.
The raditaor is a basic double panel 700 high by 1100 across without any
conventor panels or fins whatsoever. I am therefore unsure what the BTU of
such a radiator is, as Myson etc dont seem to produce a finless radiator.
The room is approx 14ft x 12ft, adjoing the linking between the hall and
kitchen. House is cavity wall (filled).Two sides are internal walls, one is
the adjoining neighbour and one is an outside. Room faces west/southwest
There is a pvcu window (double glazed window and door) that is equivilent to
about 8ftx5ft in size.
Floor is laminate on a suspending wood floor (doubt it is insulated), and
there is a Baxi gas pebble effect fire in the room (i.e chimney losses).
Is the radiator I have sufficient to heat this size room? What would be the
recommended output to change to if required?
