Forum Title: Balancing heating question
I am thinking of balancing my heating system. On my landing there is a room stat with a radiator opposite. Does this radiator need balancing too or should the valves be fully open?
Category: Plumber Post By: MIRIAM DOYLE (Vineland, NJ), 01/26/2017 to balance your system you need a pricey little meter, and knowledge how to use it, i am sure you can find out the formulas by goggling hydronic balancing. on the return side of the radiator, should be a valve with numbers/hash's/ or maybe a magic marker where the original test and balance was done. you can also do it with a temp gauge [[this is not as accurate]] take a reading of the radiator heat out put record it turn the valve down, wait a few hours record the temp repeat. till max temp is recorded...this method takes DAYS
