Radiator Vents...Need a Big One
I could use some help on a couple radiator vents. I have two radiators that are problems. One at the end of each main.
On one main I have one radiator upstairs that is about 20ft from the end of the main in the basement (and main vent) and is the smallest radiator in the house. Even with an adjustable vent all the way open, it takes forever to heat up. I want to increase the size of the radiator vent to help get all that air out of the 20ft of piping and to get it to heat up faster.
On the other main, I have a single large radiator on that main and the main is pretty long....it goes to an addition attached to the house. There is NO main vent. No place for a fitting either...so the radiator does all the work. It has an adjustable vent opened all the way up it still takes a while to warm up.
Sounds like I need two big radiator vents. Any advice? Thanks!
My mains are an unbalanced mess, yes, and that will be fixed by a pro when funds allow...but for now I want to make the best of what I've got.
