Radiator Light

Recommended Posts

This is taking the global warming thing a little too far. It still gets cold in Chicago.

That's pretty funny. Unclear on the concept...... One doesn't remove 300 lbs. of cast iron thermal mass and 50x the radiant surface area and replace it with 2 lbs. of fin tube.

One can and will.

There would have to be active components (fan/controller) to duplicate the thermal dissipation of the radiator that was there before. It definitely calls for engineering.

Anyway, I get the gist of the thread. It's another amusing DIY fumble.

True enough. Interestingly, I hardly ever see stuff this stupid. Chicago is big on hydronic heating; most people get it. It's not common to see stuff that idiotic around here.

How about?

Heating system froze, rads cracked.

To be a living age there it has to be conditioned (heated).

So flipper puts in as little as possible. Room has a heat source and meets definition.

Like in sports. Tell me the rules and I will figure out how to play the game. Seem like it was applied to this house.
