A: I am sorry I cannot give you a definitive answer as there is no consistent relationship between square footage of floor space and how much heating capacity needs to be installed. There are just two many other factors that must be considered. As I am sure you can image the same room if located in Alaska is going to need more capacity than the if it were located in Florida or the same room with an 8' ceiling vs a tall cathedral ceiling. Now let me tell you how to get the answer to your question. You do a heat loss calculation. There are many free programs on line that you can use to do this. I use the Slant Fin heat loss app that I have on my phone. It available for free at the apple or droid app store. You enter the length, width and height of the room. Along with information including, geographic location, building material, widow size, if there are heated rooms below or above, outside doors, etc.. The program will then calculate the amount of heat that specific room loses on coldest hour of the coldest day of the statistical year; in BTU's. Now you know how much heat you need to put back in to the room in order to keep the room warm. Based on the amount of BTU's you need and the temperature of the boiler water, you can determine how many feet of baseboard you need to run. For example this baseboard puts out 580 BTU's per foot using the typical 180 F boiler water. Therefore if the heat loss calls for 5800 BTU's of capacity I know I will need to install 10' of baseboard. 5800 BTU's / 580 BTU's per foot equals 10' of baseboard. As a plumber, when I do a heat loss calculation, I do it for all the rooms on that zone because they are all control by the same thermoset and I want them to have an even temperature relative to each other.
A: Technically it depends on the temperature of the water and the flow rate. If you open the PDF of the brochure that can be found on the Home Depot product listing page under the header "Info and Guides" you will find a chart that illustrates output at different temperatures. However, as a plumber I can tell you that in the vast majority of systems I assume 580 BTU's per foot. This is because the vast majority of systems run at 180 F. Taking this logic a step further if I go to a house and there are two zones, each with 50' of baseboard. That means a total of 100'. I multiply 580 x 100 and get 58000. I then know that if I replace the boiler I need to use one that has an output of 58000 BTU's to supply the two zones. Chris 978 651 3301
A: It is referred to as a 135 degree inside corner. It is Home Depot SKU 202783270. If you put that number in the search block on the Home Depot web site it will come up.
A: Slant Fin did make a wood grain finish decades ago, but not anymore. Today I would recommend you use the conventional product in white and then have a local artisan paint the wood grain pattern you desire. The stock white finish can be painted.
