Before buying radiators count how many tribes, you will need for each room.Calculation based on the lead knee 1 for every 2 square meters.That is, if the area of the room is 12m2, it will take 6 to its knees heating.When the question arises about the metal of which will be your battery, keep in mind that in the houses put aluminum, and in the apartments - bimetallic.Cast-iron batteries are gradually receding into the past.
battery must defend from the wall at a distance of not less than 2.5 cm, or heat the battery is low.Also
, improper installation of batteries will be too close to the floor.Leave 8-10 cm so that air exchange is not disturbed, and under the radiator was easier to clean.If you usually place the battery under the windowsill, then do not put it too close to him.
So, mark the site of attachment bracket 1 and 2 below the top.On the wall brackets are attached with dowels or by drowning in the wall brackets with the subsequent incorporation of cement.Vertical mounting level check.If the battery will hang unevenly, it will not only ugly, but is not functional.In this case violated the heating engineer.
