    I recently took a cast I radiator out of my kitchen. Did a remodel and it did not fit anymore. Small kitchen. I want to place a heat source back in the room. Can I retro a toe kick in the new existing cabs? My basement is open. I figure I need to drill up from the basement in the right spot to hook up the 2 water lines and 110. Cut the toe kick and feed everything in from the toekick and connect downstairs.

    Any concerns?

    That is how to INSTALL it, but do not expect to get the same heat from it that you did from a cast iron radiator.

    Great. We just want some of the heat back. It is a small kitchen and we would like to warm the floor. We thought about doing a little under floor radiant but that would require a mixingvalve and a new circulator. This just seemed easier as the old monoflow loop is just below the floor.
