i have 2 radiators to fit in my house which are for a lounge that is 2.9 metres wide x 3.9 metres long average height ceiling..forgot to measure lol... can you plz advice me what size you think i will need for this room ie 1000 double
also have a rad to fit in the dining room which measures 6 metres long x 2 metres wide.. same again in this room plz what size should i purchase..
the rads i shall buy from screwfix as im happy with the quality + pegler terrier trv & wheelhead valves..(note that part of the dining room is open plan with the hob/cooker within this area as its an l shaped kitchen/diner & the return leg of the kitchen measures 1.5metres x 2 metres & has an 800mm double rad already fitted in that area...) cheers again :)

oh right i didnt realise this cheers again andy i can proceed to order from this :D
yeah ive matched up the btu to the appropiate size rad on screwfix although i could do to query a few things which are as follows
1) kudox & flomasta rads...what is the difference in quality ? as there is 33% off kudox rads at screwfix...and they look the same to me(done the rest of the house in flomasta need them to look very similar at worst... flomasta rads are proving alot more expensive now than ls yr when i bought 7 or so...
+ would like the more slimline double panel plus rads if i can as the double panel rads are obviously more long as i get the same value btu rads that i require is there no harm in choosing these for there looks...heat output is the most important thing tbh :) advice plz cheers again
