Central Heating Question
Rads - same size different wattage output?
Hi - You have two itentical size rads, say for example 600x1200mm double panel, double fin rads but one brand has a wattage output 500 watts higher than the other - Q. Does this mean that for same quanity of gas burnt, one rad will pump out 500watts extra heat at no extra running cost?
If the above assumption is correct then I should be comparing the wattage output when comparing itentical sized rads as opposed to just purchase price?
Thanks in advance for your reply
Radiator (A) will dissipate the heat quicker than Rad (B) thus giving a higher wattage or BTU output.
