I want to add a new radiator to our existing system, (capacity permitting- seems to have enough spare though) which is a small bore pipe system with each radiator on its own pipe run.
My easiest option would be to add the new radiator to the pipe run of an existing radiator nearby, rather than the disruption of running a fresh pipe from the source.
My question is,
(1) Do I join the radiators in series or parallel. I suspect parallel is preferable so that each can be independently controlled. Is this possible/desirable/legal etc? I plan to fit a TRV to the new radiator.
(2) Is there a minimum distance which has to be observed between a radiator and an electrical socket?
htg: Thanks for your advice. Might I also ask a follow up question, if you have any experience of running a vertical radiator ~1800mm tall x 400mm wide ~4500BTU off its own (!! - thanks) small bore pipe? The rad I have in mind has I believe a 'standard' large size connector, but presumably can be adapted with a suitable coverter. The particular rad can be seen here: [url] http://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?mid=15 ... nvt/159912.
I am wodering if there are any particular issues with this set-up that I need to be aware of?
