(Old-fashioned) radiators in a Pretty Good House?
We are considering plumbing in two reclaimed 8″x12″x38″ radiators in the upper floor bedrooms of our pretty good, passive solar home near Ottawa. The house is heated by a radiant slab in the basement and will have a 2″ radiant slab on the main floor.
We are wondering if the considerable mass of old fashioned radiators, or the possibility of them having a higher designed operating temperature might make them inefficient or ineffective in our system.
We have a Stiebel Eltron Tempra 12 Plus boiler.
Any advice on mixing the old with the new would be appreciated, thanks.
