    We had a kitchen extension added to the house 2ish years ago, as we had electric underfloor heating before we asked for this, currently no idea what the spec is as I can't find the paperwork but it's not upto Heating the area.
    The kitchen is 6x4 mtrs with a vaulted ceiling of approx 2.75mtrs approx btu's 7k average from 5 online calculators

    My question is if I want to run using the pipework from the nearest rad(copper pipe runs under the floor in a cellar type void) would I connect the new rads inlet to the outlet of the current rad and the return straight back via the current return or should I tee into the flow before the existing rad and do the same on the return?
    I would be using 15mm speed fit plastic

    Thanks Ray
