Residual heat from boiler and radiator piping
With the new system I was planning to put an old cast rad in the basement to supplement the heat. But in sizing it I was wondering how much the boiler and piping are going to contribute to the warmth of the basement. This might be a stupid question but, Could I leave the radiator out and the system would respond to the heat loss through the PEX. As we have always heated with wood in this house I have no feel for how much residual heat a boiler/piping put out. The basement is just for storage and I have a workshop down there.
1st floor 19k
2nd floor 9.7k
The first floor radiators are all piped through the basement (home run) with 1/2inch fostapex. About 220 ft total.
The boiler is a Vitodens 200 B2HA-19 running continuous on ODR. Radiators are on TRVs.
Is it worth considering or is it negligible?
I assume it could be calculated but am not sure where to start.
