Our familyroom is always cold. Was built by previous owners in
early 90'. It has baseboard on all 4 walls, and a separate thermostat. It is on a slab, and has a high ceiling (we use a ceiling fan to push down air). Everyone who's been out to look
at the space as a different idea - blame it on the slab, or maybe something is blocking the piping, etc. etc.
The last HVAC guy out mentioned that maybe the water is flowing too fast through the loop and since this isn't a large room, the water isn't waiting around long enough to adequately heat the fins in the baseboards. Does this make sense to anyone? His suggestion was to install some kind of value that can be adjusted. He believes if the hot water is slowed down, it will radiate more heat. He said the pipes to and from the space are equally hot - that there should be a heat loss on the return pipe.
We have a new Buderus boiler, and we're told its more than adequate for the 1,800 sq ft house.
We're puzzled - if seems no matter what we set the thermostat to,
it can't keep up .....
