    Hmm

    Hi there!
    just wondered if anybody had any of these Swedish granite radiators at home and could tell me the inconvenients, if they work well and if they are worthy. I know there's a company called LVI that makes them.
    would really appreciate the users opinion.
    many thanks for your time!
    regards
    Esther

    never heard of them --
    however, if they are made of stone, then their mass must be heated by some source -- same as with oil filled radiators & heavy cast iron stoves, or heavy stone stoves -- the only advantage is that they are slow to cool down

    likewise for heavy fireplace inserts -- their advantage is usually that considerable of the insert sticks out into the room & most of these have circulating fans

    in other words, there will be no cost savings during operation, just more expensive to buy, than say a $35 500watt elec heater -- which type has been used by my family for 70+ years

    oh, yeh, such looks fancy!
    harvest rainwater,make SHADE,R75/50/30= roof/wall/floor, use HVAC mastic,caulk all wall seams!
