OK, so now that the radiators are out of the house, I've got one more question...
The three bedrooms have seven section radiators each (or did originally). One bedroom's radiator was replaced at some point with a modern, non-ornated, radiator that doesn't match the rest of the house. After the remodel upstairs, one of the bedrooms will be a smaller room than it was originally, and we'll have a five section radiator that matches the others left over.
So long story short, can we use the five section left over in the shrunken bedroom?? In other words, was there a formula the old timers used to determine how many sections were appropriate for each rooms radiator???
Thanks in advance!
