Calculating length of Slantfin to replace cast iron radiator
Posted by Bill on October 31, 19100 at 22:09:23:
I am in the process of remodeling a bathroom, and would like to replace a cast iron radiator with baseboard hot water heater. Could someone help me in determining how long a radiator I need to install to adequately heat the room? The room is 6' by 9', north facing, with one vinyl thermopane window, 30" by 60". The 2 by 6 wall is clapboard sheathed, with blown-in cellulose insulation. the interior wall has two sheets of half inch gypsum, and a layer of plaster.
