Having received my new toy - an IR thermometer from Maplin recently
mentioned here - I set about trying to balance the CH radiators. I
understand that I need to achieve a temp. drop across each radiator of ~
The problem I have though is where exactly to take the temp reading
from. The diagrams I've seen show pipe thermometers attached to the
radiator tails but the tails are painted here and therefore somewhat
insulated? I wondered whether taking the temp from the chromed
connections at each end of the radiator might make sense?
How long should I wait after adjusting a lockshield before remeasuring
The temperature varies depending on the type of surface I point the
laser dot at - do I need to ensure all surface types are the same?
The radiator surface itself reads around 30"F higher than either of the
pipes at each end of the radiator - how can that be?
Sorry for what are probably dumb questions.
