Hereof, how far should a radiator be from the wall?
The distance from the wall to the radiator should be from 2 to 5 cm. In some cases, the wall surface must be coated with special heat-reflecting material before installing the radiator.
Beside above, how many radiators should be in a room? In most cases 1-2 radiators will suffice, however for larger rooms you may require more. The amount of BTU's required per radiator will depend on how many radiators are within the room – so divide the total BTU requirement by the number of radiators to calculate the average BTU's required per radiator.
Besides, should radiators go under Windows?
While you no longer need to fit your radiator under the window, there is some logic in doing so. Historically, radiators were fitted in the coldest part of the room – the exterior wall – where cold air would enter and drop to the floor.
Where should you place radiators in a room?
The traditional place to position your radiator is the coldest part of the room. Whether that's beneath your window or against the wall. This is due to conduction, with incoming cold air causing more effective heat conduction and pushing the hot air from your radiator into the middle of the room.
