My sons room is cold
Trying to figure out why my sons room is not getting warm. I have a 2 story colonial. His room is on the second floor. It is a 10’x10’ room with a 6 section tubular radiator 23” height, 4 tube wide connected to 1” pipe coming from floor. There are 3 mains in the house, which his room is connected to shortest main 20’ with a G2 on it. All the radiator vents were replaced with new vent rite #1’s to try and balance the system better. I noticed that the vent on radiator was stuck closed and would not let air out so radiator would not heat up. So I changed the vent, and the radiator would heat up after a long while, but not to the point where the room heats up. All the other radiators heat up and work fine.
Is the radiator too small for the room?
Is 1” pipe too small to carry enough steam quickly?
Should I use a different vent other than vent rite?
Any help is much appreciated. His room is coldest in house and takes longest for steam to reach even though it’s on the shortest main and 2nd or 3rd closest radiator to boiler.
