Small, Old House - Radiator heating Question ?
I have a 1926 home/cottage/bungalow - around 1300 sq. feet. I have a radiator in the kitchen, one in each of two bedrooms, and two in the living room, one in a full bathroom. No radiator in the dining room, however, I can see in the floor that there was one there.
Anyway, every single radiator in this house is placed under a window. Is this normal? It has never made sense to me in the six years I am living here.
Second question -- Two years ago, I re-did my kitchen. I had the old, original radiator removed because it was huge. I replaced it with a lower, slimmer unit. I was told that size doesn't really matter and I don't notice a difference but I am wondering because I'd like to replace another huge one in my newly remodeled bathroom. Does anyone know if a shorter, slimmer one will work just as well? Of course, it is under the bathroom window :-)
Thanks for any help!
