Abstract


This paper estimates the temperature requirements of an under floor heating system for a room of equal dimensions as those stated in the 2011 paper “Heating a Cold Roomâ€. The temperature of the underwater piping required to maintain 25  against heat loss through the walls is calculated explicitly. It is found that for the parameters stated in the paper, the piping must be maintained at 36.9 . The water temperature required for the room heated by 2 radiators is found to be 63.7 .
