Thought I'd share this- The Lovely Naoko knows the best way to dry out her gloves.

    Cast is a blast!

    The kids rooms, run the same temp as the radiant slab downstairs.

    I remember, as a child, after a long hard day playing in the snow. Laying on top of one, drying  off, and thawing out. I miss that.

    Our Weil Mclain rads look like these six column ones that solid_fuel_man has. They're great for resting your cold tired butt on when you come in from the outdoors. Those rounded top rads don't look near as comfortable.

    hmm, that could be the solution to my not enough delta t across the unit heater to push as much heat as i need across the hx that isolates the glycol loop out to the garage.

    When visiting my daughter in Minnetonka, when the temperature, (with no wind chill), was -30 F outside, putting my hands on the Amtrol indirect hot water tank was heaven, after snow blowing.
    Interesting enough was the Burnham hot water boiler next to the tank, was not as warm!—NBC

    I love the fact that the colder it gets the better it heats and feels.

    During a particular cold night during a polar vortex I could feel the two radiators in the living room from clear across the room. I had just came down the steps and as soon as my face came out from behind the wall to face them I could feel the radiant energy.

    Of course all of these are heated by wood.... I sand blasted and painted them with automotive paint. 

    @flat_twin good eye, those pictured are Weil McLain. I have a couple of square ARCOs as well. All 1950s salvage....the boring ones.
