the existing radiator elements are just over 100,000 btus. Is that an answer to the right question? ha.
: Alright, first things first I guess, sorry. The heat loss of the home is about 40,200 btu/hr. How can I calculate how much radiation is throwing off heat? Any resources for that?
: Thanks for all your prompt responses.
: : You are missing the important point:
: : WHAT IS THE HEAT LOSS of the house?
: : HOW MUCH RADIATION is throwing off heat?
: : You start from there for GPM.
: : Then you look at the buffer tank or low-resistance manifold piping,
: : which is boiler pipe from buffer tank or low-resistance manifold to boiler,
: : buffer tank or low-resistance manifold pipe to boiler with pump in it
: : - pipe from buffer tank or low-resistance manifold to radiation with pump and expansion tank in it
