Bit of a long shot, but is it possible to get an idea of heat output on a standard style panel radiator? Size is 1400mm X 600mm with 10mm feed pipes. Bad pic of it below. I've found info for them online, but are these ones likely to be very similar spec?

Want to know if changing it to traditional 2 bar column radiator of same size would give out more heat? Or be more efficient at giving out heat?

No, as a rule of thumb you'd need a column rad 40% bigger than a double panel rad to emit the same amount of heat per hour into the room. The cost per kwh is mainly down to how efficient your boiler is.
