    I was hoping someone could advise me on the following?
    I wish to replace the radiators throughout my house and I have read somewhere that if space is not an issue it is better to use single panel radiators as opposed to double. If this is the case is it ok to use two of them in a room to get the required BTU output?

    The only reason to use single radiators as opposed to double, for the same heat output, is that you can position them so that the room is heated more evenly. I personally would always go for double, to keep as much wall space as possible free for other furnishings. The only time that I would deviate from this, is if I have a large expanse of window, and I want to minimise draughts, I would want the radiators to span as much of the under-window area as possible.

    Thanks for that, I would much rather use a double panel at the end of the day.
