Thanks for the comments. The beadboard is fir, the baseboard is poplar. Yeah it throws the heat. I had it all plumbed in Tuesday night. I wimped out and used steel pipe for the risers and then new copper to the existing copper for the old baseboard. I wanted to do steel pipe all the way back to the boiler header, but I didn't want to be cutting and threading pipe all week. More projects to do. I couldn't believe how easy it was to fill and bleed. Took no more than 20 minutes. Glad I didn't go through the trouble with the monoflow tees. It heats up quick enough. As far as performance I had the thermostat set at 68 deg. yesterday. Went out with dad and when I came home the wife said she had to turn it down to 60 deg. Breezeway was over 80 deg. I cannot believe it got cool enough in there to trip the thermostat. Mid sixties here yesterday. Computer room stove I let burn out Mon. night, so no supplemental heat. My conclusion is the radiator actually throws enough BTU's out to actually heat soak the room. (ex. walls, furniture), another factor is with the EK 2000 the circulator doesn't stop untill all the heat is out of the water. So just because the thermostat stops calling for heat, water is still circulating. Today I have the thermostat set at 65 deg. and it's going to be in the 30's tonight. We'll see how it does. The radiator by the stairs I'll do that one after winter. This close to cold weather I really don't want to play with the main house zone. Now that I have the house taking care of it's time to think about barn heating options. Take care. Matt
