I am replacing an existing radiator with two vertical ones on the ground floor and was wondering how to go about this without loosing to much heat output. The CH system is a pressurised system from a water tank on the 3rd floor, i live in a 3 storey town house, its a 10mm plastic push fit two pipe system and the manifold is located under the floor on the 3rd floor. It is pretty much impossible to run a pair of new pipes back to the manifold without ripping the whole house apart so i was thinking of doing the following.
1. Disconnect the existing radiator flow and return pipes and put a T connector on the ends of the existing pies 2. T off the flow pipe to both radiators 3. T off the return to both radiators
Both the new vertical radiators will have TRV's fitted. I know this may not be the best way to do it but i know it is better than connecting them in series and easier than ripping the floors up and destroying the walls in the rest of the house.
