    Old radiator output vs new radiator

    Old radiator output vs new radiator 6th Mar 10 at 4:41 PM
    Currently I have in my kitchen an old double radiator (no fins) - size is approx 590mm by 800mm.

    My mum is redoing her bathroom and is replacing her radiator with a heated towel radiator so has a reasonably new radiator I could use. It's a single panel, single fin of approximately 600mm by 700mm.

    Can anyone tell me if I lose/gain much heat by replacing my old double radiator with no fins with a new single radiator with single fins?
