We have a very small bathroom on our first floor. And it has a 2 pipe radiator. To get some space back in the renovation, we are putting in radiant floor heat and taking out the radiator. (Long story)
The recommendation seems to be to cap off both pipes. But I wonder why no one recommends that we connect the 2 pipes under the floor so the water at least circulates. The pipes that run in the basement ceiling help keep the basement warm in the winter. If we just cap off the pipes, does that mean the water won't circulate anymore and the basement will be colder in the winter?
How does the 2 pipe radiator work. Is each radiator self-contained? None of our plumbers really explain it well. Aside from the possible side effect of making the basement colder, I don't want pipes sticking up out of the floor. Can we cap the pipes under the floor? All I see ****** are mostly articles about 1 pipe radiators and that's not what we have. Can anyone explain how it works? Thanks!
