Mixing 3/4 and 1/2 inch pipe on a hot water system?
Two questions if i may about my hot water radiator system
1. First floor mud room radiator has 1/2 inch while all others in house have 3/4 inch.
Meaning, a 3/4 to 1/2 reducer has been installed in basement plumbing leading
to the mudroom radiator.
Could that impact overall system performance?
Could that impact mud room radiator performance / efficiency?
The mud room gets very cold but I attribute that to poor insulation in that room.
We are installing insulation and under floor heat mats soon
2. Second floor hotter than first floor. (as much as 6 or 7 degrees)
Have tried adjusting 2nd floor valves with minimal success.
We have no door leading to 2nd floor so that solution is out.
Am thinking first floor insulation issues causing thermostat to trigger boiler
longer thereby making 2nd floor hotter.
My guess anyway but very much appreciate your thoughts
