I'm going to replace a radiator in a room where there is one already installed. Can I assume that its placement is correct and install the new one in the same location? In many cases, yes! Of course, it depends on how professionally the original sizing/calculation was done. The aim is always to place the radiator under the window. The purpose is for the warm rising air column from the radiator to meet and counteract the cold drafts coming from the windows. Keep in mind that the width of the radiator should preferably cover as much of the window's width as possible. The bottom of the radiator should ideally be about 100 mm above the floor. The top should have at least approximately 60–70 mm of clearance to the window sill. (Pax radiators are available in 2 different construction heights: 300 mm and 500 mm). If the radiator placement must be on an interior wall (due to space constraints), you should still try to get as close to the exterior wall as possible.
Is there any constructional detail I should consider? Check the condition of the wall. Pax radiators may weigh slightly more than previously installed radiators. (See weight table on the tab). There may be a need for screw anchors when mounting on plasterboard walls. The windowsill above the radiator should preferably have air gaps to minimize obstacles for the airflow towards the window.
Who is allowed to install Pax radiators? Pax radiators are installed with fixed electrical wiring and should therefore always be installed by a qualified electrician.
Can Pax radiators be installed in wet areas (laundry room/bathroom, etc.)? Yes. However, the IP rating (IP24) means that the radiator should be placed in zone 2 or zone 3. 
What are the benefits of lowering room temperature? Each degree reduction in temperature results in a 3–5% decrease in energy consumption for heating.
Is thermal comfort affected by air quality and air circulation?

Yes! Stale air that is not refreshed frequently is almost always synonymous with high relative humidity levels indoors. High humidity makes the air feel damp, which in turn leads to raising the temperature and thus increasing heating costs. Therefore, consider ventilation while updating the heating system in your house.
