How Do I Maintain Air Quality in a Newly Finished Basement of a 1925 Home with No Ductwork?

On the plus side, a 1925 house tends to be fairly drafty. Not an ideal thing if you live in MN, but it can be considered a benefit as it typically means you have plenty of airflow in the home.The main air quality issue in your basement will likely be mildew/mold. That will depend on your climate (is it humid?) and the quality and type of finishing that was done in the basement.If it is a humid region, definitely invest in a quality dehumidifier. If you already have central air, and it can handle the extra space, definitely add the basement space to the HVAC system to help circulate. Having heat in the basement is good too, as the warmer air will eventually rise through the house pulling in newer air into the basement space. Other things you can do would be to install ceiling fans...a relatively cheap way to help increase air circulation.

And as others have stated, definitely get a Radon test

I just bought a house built in 1925 but it has just been professionally renovated, including finishing the basement as living space. The home has a boiler for radiator and baseboard heat. There is no duct work for ventilation nor AC. My question has to do with whether or not it would be advisable to install an air to air exchanger in the basement.

Most Frequently Asked Questions on Radiator
Do you want to know about radiator? Here are some frequently asked questions.1. RADIATOR FAN NOT TURNING ON?the sensor for the fan is defective replace it !2. Do I have Radiator problem?-- Water leaks -- Check your radiator hose connections and the hoses themselves. If the hoses are rock hard and cracked at all, replace them ASAP. Also check the radiator overflow bottle because it could be leaking. -- Engine -- Check your oil. If it is "muddy"...gray or cloudy in appearance you have a blown head gasket. When a car overheats the headgasket usually gets blown. -- Fan not turning on -- Bad thermostat. -- Radiator -- Check the radiator hose pipe connection at the tank. Check any seams along the edge of the tank. Check the core fins for signs of wetness. Might need a flashlight for this. If you see antifreeze coming from any of these locations your radiator needs to be either repaired or replaced. If this is the case I suggest taking the car to a radiator shop rather than your auto repair shop. The auto repair shop does not necessarily have the equipment to repair a radiator. As for that water pump fiasco... Mechanics generally do not accept parts brought to them by the customer because they do not make any additional profit from a parts sale. The mechanic said what he did as a "beat around the bush" way of telling you that. ie...your mechanic screwed you over. The water pump you purchased was probably just fine. The mechanic said what he did so he would get permission from you to get the "right" water pump. btw...check the water pump on your car to see if it is the exact same one you bought. It is possible he used the one you brought in and charged you for a replacement.3. Losing Coolant, Top off monday...check coolant light today.?Have the hoses and radiator checked, has the water pump been replaced ever? You need to go to a garage and have the problem diagnosed. A blown head gasket is an expensive repair, hope its not headed that way. If you are leaking, do not bother to replace with anti-freeze, just add water. Anti-freeze does not lower your temp in hot weather, thats why racers do not use coolant whatsoever. Anti-freeze is only for cold weather. Good Luck.4. How much to repair a radiator?Not to fear. You can repair those old brass rads. There are still shops aroud that repair them. Any old school mechanic can repair it. If you use any kind of glue forget about soldering afterwards without a lot of sanding. Any repair shop sees that stuf on there and your getting quoted double.5. What is the safe temperature to store UNOPENED Gerber baby food?Room temperature. 20 C (68 F) to 25 C (77 F), Obviously if it's a little warmer or colder, I would not panic, it's summer. The jars make it through all sorts of conditions from warehouse to truck to store. Basically do not freeze them and do not store them over a heating vent or radiator or something. It's essentially like jams and jarred peaches. They are fine at room temperature because they are sealed and air tight. Store them in a dry cupboard. They will last there until the expiry date or best before date on the jar if there is one.6. My 1995 Ford Escort needs water every day. Does not overheat. No Steam. No water in oil. What do I check?Should not hear rumbling in radiator, thermost half stuck, or low in water. Lose water and do not see, check under the carpet, could be heater core7. Fan not working but also not stiff?Thermo-sensor is the element which gives information for the fan to start to blow or to switch off. It is located at the engine block (I suppose it's the case with your car too). There's relay which deals with fan power supply. So, if block exceed given temperature at the place where sensor is located then this little device sends signal and relay switch the fan on. Radiator has nothing to do with fan not working. Either the sensor is faulty or relay or the very fan. Also there might be some wire loosened. Try to directly connect fan's () terminal to battey (). Use wire. If fan turns freely then check sensor and relay.

Find Answers to the Hottest Questions About Radiator
Considering that radiator may still be new to many people, we provide ten common questions and answers about radiator for you to get started.1. Cost to replace radiator hose?You have a car that is 23 years old. Unless you have already replaced one of the radiator hoses then replace them both at the same time not just one of them. They are easy to replace and all you need is common hand tools. This would be a good time to replace the thermostat and flush the system and install fresh coolant. Mix the coolant 50% antifreeze and 50% distilled water2. Poll: What made your day today?i have put red and blue LED lights all behind my computer desk and radiator and it looks really smart i am loving them....you cant see the bulbs just the lights3. My car radiator is leaking??There are additives to slow the death process but most do not survive. It will have to be replaced4. transmission fluid in radiator?yOU NEED A NEW RADIATOR THE BOTTOM OF IT HAS ROTTEN OUT CAUSING THE TRANSMISSION FLUD TO MIX WITH THE ANTIFREEZE,NOTE MOST CAR TRANSMISSION LINE FEED INTO THE RADIATOR TO KEEP THE FLUID WARM.5. How do u flash a radiator?drop your pants and shake your penis at it. or if your a chick lift your skirt6. Do I have a leak in my radiator?if the radiator was leaking it would show on the ground. check the floor on the passenger side for anti-freeze, the heater core might be leaking. check the oil and is it blowing white smoke out the tailpipe? it could be a head gasket or intake leaking.7. where is laguna radiator cap?No cap. all access is via the expansion tank. Note warning on tank cap about pressure and opening hot!!8. how do i isolate each radiator on my heating system to flush radiator by radiator?Isolation valves are on the inlet and outlet of the radiator, if they have separate thermostats, they will be zone valves there too. I wouldnt isolate each radiator..I would open them all and then open the bypass by passing the autofeed at the boiler, then open the return valve going back to the boiler and let it push through9. Radiator is leaking?IF YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS LEAKING. THERE IS A RADIATOR REPAIR GOOP THAT YOU CAN BUY AT A AUTO STORE FOR UNDER 5 DOLLARS. I USED IT STILL HOLDING GOOD FOR ABOUT 8 MONTHS NOW10. Coolant reservoir empty radiator full?As said already the expansion tank should have coolant in it to the minimum line or above all the time. They are a sealed and pressurized system so it should NEVER lose coolant unless there is a leak somewhere. As for the location of the leak you need to look everywhere first thing in the morning for any damp spots on the cooling system and engine block. If there is none then the water pump could be leaking when the engine is running BUT . . . . You say a coolant hose burst and when that happens engines overheat within seconds. There is a very good chance the head gasket has failed. get a local garage to check the coolant for exhaust gasses as that is a sure sign it has failed11. what is in front of my radiator?ac equiptment or tranny fluid cooler12. how to pressurize your radiator?the heat from your engine will pressurize it. Is their a leak somewhere? You should not need to pressurize it by yourself13. How could my vehicle lose all coolant and oil overnight?It could not . The oil and water are in two separate systems. It is possible that they might mix if a gasket were to fail, but the two fluids will still be there somewhere, mixed in the sump or radiator, or on the floor underneath14. replacing radiator from my car?i never saw that before. all the ones i ever saw was the lines screwed off15. Transmission Fluid in Radiator and Coolant Overflow?Hi so time to get it to a Dodge dealer for some diagnostics16. Question about coolant in reservoir and radiator?yes. depending on the type of cooling system, all it would take is a failing radiator cap

Some Questions About Radiator Answered
Do you want to know about radiator? Here are some frequently asked questions.1. Leaking radiator question?I am a Licensed Automotive Service Technician and I do not approve of temporary repairs, however I will tell you how you can continue to drive your vehicle in it's current state without doing any damage for the purpose of driving it to a place where it can be serviced. First, do not put water into the radiator, you must use properly concentrated coolant. The reason for this is due to the boiling point. Water will boil at a lower temperature than than properly concentrated engine coolant, this will slow the rate at which the coolant level will drop. Second, do not operate the vehicle with the radiator cap on. The purpose of the radiator cap is to seal the cooling system so that a pressure can be held, this again is for the boiling point, the greater the pressure the more energy or heat is required to boil a liquid. For exaple at high altitude where the pressure is lower the boiling point is also lower. Why is this relevent? Because when the radiator cap is installed and the engine is running the cooling system is under pressure. This pressure naturally want to nuetralize with the lower atmospheric pressure that surrounds it, this means that the high pressure coolant will leak much faster with the cap installed. You will find that if you remove the radiator cap the leak will be very slow, this of course depends on the location and size of the leak, however leaking nonetheless. The third step is the easiest. Turn the cabin heater on max. Put the temperature setting to the hottest (red), and turn the blower setting to the highest speed, ensure the ducts are all open, obviously point them away from you and open the windows if it is a really hot day. This step is important because all that heat you are blowing away is comming from the coolant, in essence you are accelerating the rate at which the coolant is being cooled. Do not put the defog/defrost setting on as this will automatically activate the air conditioning compressor which will add to the work load of the engine and subsequently increase the heat, that is not good, do not do that. And finally, keep an eye on the temperature guage if it nears the high level indicator with its range, if it suddenly spikes or if you see excessive steam turn off the engine right away. You will be fine fine, do not abuse you car by driving it to work every day in it's current state, take in and get it fixed.2. Why won't my car's A/C blow out any hot air during winter or cold air during summer?Although your cooling system (radiator) should be filled to the top when the engine is stone cold and plastic coolant recovery bottle 3/4 full, neither one has anything to do with the air conditioner operation. Turn the air conditioner off and see if you get heat in the Winter time. When you get no cool or hot air the system could be low on refrigerant. A trusted private mechanic or dealer of the should check your cooling system for refrigerant leaks or compressor failure3. radiator versus floor heating, what is better?Radiant heat, hands down, is best!4. Can I drive without a radiator fan?get the fan fixed unless you want to blow a head gasket and if your lucky get away with a $1,500 bill5. Can leaving a radiator on with things covering it be a hazard?It would really depend on how warm/hot he keeps these rads. Leaving cloths on it is probably not the best thing to do....I suppose if they are on it all day, there is a chance it could leave burn marks on the clothes. ...but I am not sure they would catch fire or anything like that. Again...it really depends on the temperature he keeps the rad6. Are home radiator heaters any good?All you need is a pipe heating cable. You just wrap it around the pipes and it will keep them warm so they do not freeze. Some have an automatic thermostat, this way they cycle on and off as needed. It is cheaper to buy and cheaper to operate than an electric heater.

The Hottest Questions About Radiator
Considering that radiator may still be new to many people, we provide ten common questions and answers about radiator for you to get started.1. How do you remove the radiator cap from a car radiator and replace the antifreeze?Push down on the cap and turn it counter clockwise, to the left. Make sure the vehicle is cool or has cooled down before taking off the radiator cap. You can get seriously burned if you are not careful. You can just add antifreeze to your Grand Prix. Make sure you get the right antifreeze. There are two different types os antifreeze and if you mix the two they have a tendency to gel and it's bad for the motor. Just ask at a parts store what type of antifreeze your vehicle needs.2. is used radiator worth gettingSome things to consider since you asked. A new radiator will cost you under $100. How much for a used one? Do you have to spend the time to remove the old one from a salvage yard vehicle and or pay shipping? Also factor in how long you want to drive the car, a few months, years? The used radiator does not come with a warranty and is as old as your current one and could leak at anytime.3. Radiator coolant looks hot but is cold?Maybe the head gasket is blown and they removed the thermostat to reduce the symptoms. ( During warm up with a thermostat, there is a big pressure increase that pushes the coolant through the head gasket) Without the thermostat you could test drive it and never notice anything... now you are screwed.4. HELP! in home radiator heat issues?call your landlord, you may not have much control over this as the boiler may not be set to come on yet5. 1999 ford taurus radiator flush?You need to find the leak. Flushing the system is a waste of time. You need to fill it and keep it filled up. A leak should not be that hard to spot. ...6. where is the radiator drain located at?newer vehicles do not have a drain but you can unhook the bottom hose and drain it that way, also on older models you have to look on the bottom passenger side of radiator and you will see the pecock just turn it counter clock wise and it should start flowing out from there7. what is the best RADIATOR brand?I've never heard of a radiator that only lasts a "few years"! And I've owned a lot of cars. You are not using straight anti-freeze are you? Most radiators should last almost as long as the car unless damaged in some way. You might be able to find the original radiator for your car at a junkyard.8. Questions about a radiator on a Civic?they probably put radiator stop leak thing in it which sure as hell dont work i tryed it it clogged all my hoses messed up my water pump and burned out my thermostat i was pissed So know that he has the car it would b the best idea to get the radiator,thermostat,timing belt and water pump changed that way he dont have to wrry about it till like 150K and just to change a radiator its easy but if u want to change everything else take it to a mechanic9. 02 wrx koyo radiator help!?Why exactly does it have such a huge radiator? I have never had cooling issues with my stock one even on a past car with a front mount in front of it. I honestly would suggest selling it and getting a new stock one if it keeps giving you trouble. I have also seen a few monster builds at local shops with the stock radiator and they are at track events pretty regularly.10. The radiator seems to be full of a mixture of motor oil and radiator fluid. Should I ditch it after repairs?wow! That's serious. Most likely you have a cracked block. You need a new engine! Get a junk yard engine to save some money, then after replacing the engine, you will not have to sell it. Oh crud! I did not see until now the rest of your post. If it is a 2012 under warranty, then get rid of it. You got a lemon!

Venting Computer Equipment, and Negative Pressure in the Home?
Negative presure is actually a serious problem. Modern homes are tight enough that a negative pressure device like a dryer venting has the potential to pull negative pressure on the house and interfere with gravity (convection) exhaust stacks on fuel furnace, water heater, etc. This is why heat exchangers are a thing, and many machines are now direct vented, with double vents, inner for exhaust, outer for combustion air. (Bonus, the exhaust heat warms and dries the combustion air).Also, it is a shame to throw away perfectly good heat. The cheap way is to block doors open and set blowers/fans in doorways to pull the heat around the house. In summer, open basement windows. However this is not a reliable solution and requires a lot of awkward fans-in-pathways and manual arrangement. Other venting plans are up against a basic fact: air is not a very good thermal transfer fluid. Water is ideal, and adding antifreeze doesn't hurt much. from here on out, when I say water, I mean antifreeze, ideally propylene glycol which is basically edible. A spill will bring vermin rather than kill cats. Surprisingly little water flow will do a fine job of cooling a PC, even several chips plumbed in series. (Another way of saying this is, heating water is hard). If practicable, use water-cooling on the equipment. This detailed "whole room water cooling" video series goes deep into the nuts and bolts of it. They do a few things I don't agree with, like dingdonging together a bunch of PC radiators instead of just getting an old automobile radiator (with attached thermostats and electric fans) from a junkyard. But the basics are the same: cooling plates on the hot running chips, pumps in the PCs, a hot/disposal water trunk, and a cool/makeup trunk. Now in the simple version, you plumb all the heat outside, to an automobile radiator. Keep its built-in fan thermostat and fans. Wire it off a 12V supply, so the thermostat operates a 12v relay which supplies power to the fans. Plumb it so water reaches the thermostat last. That way the fans only run if they're needed, just like in the car. In the more complex version, you make stop(s) and get to the automotive radiator last, but first, you make a tour around the house and use the water-heat "any which way you can". Now this is very similar to hydronic heating systems used in wealthier homes in the US, and multipurpose boiler" systems in the UK. I'm not an expert in those systems, so I'll explain the general gist. And they may not be in this sequence. You take hot water either to a heat exchanger in the furnace, or baseboard heating around your house, whichever is more practical. In the normal state, water flow bypasses your furnace or baseboards and goes onto the next thing - that way it doesn't overheat your house. When your house thermostat calls for heat, it stops bypassing and flows througH the furnace/baseboards. You'll need a 2-stage thermostat (or 3-stage if you already have 2-stage). You would want to program this as the first stage. When the house is not warm enough, the thermostat will call first to use this free waste heat. If that works, the thermostat will cycle it on and off (bypassing or not). If that is not enough, it will then call for your normal heat to fire up. You need a diverter valve. During a call for heat, the valve operates and forces water through the circuit. If the little pumps inside the PC's can't push water around the heating circuit, you may want to have a booster pump turn on with the diverter valve. If the booster pump is a type that tends to block flow when it's off, you may not even need the diverter valve! Next stop is the water heater. The bypass valves will be a bit more complex, because if your heater is already 60C, you don't want to run 50C water through it. Or you may have an on-demand heater and let your system "help it out", but in that case don't heat standby water 24x7, as this will breed legionella. (A recently discovered problem that reared its ugly head in the Flint, Michigan water crisis). There's a real science to getting hot water right, without scalding or breeding legionella. Then you go on to any hydronic floor heating you may have. Now, this is a bit of a problem, because if your servers aren't running for some reason, or if the furnace/baseboards have already taken all the heat out of the water, then no floor heat unless you have an alternative heating method. The other option is to do the floor-heat circuit first before the furnace/baseboards, since the furnace has a plan B, and the floor heat does not.Now if everything bypasses, or if the servers are making more heat than the non-bypasssing things can use... Then the heat winds up outside at the aforementioned automobile radiator. The only other serious concern is condensation. You don't want fresh cooling water arriving inside the PC colder than about 10C, as it risks causing condensation inside the PC. This problem could be reduced by careful ducting around the outside radiator, so it doesn't convection cool very well, and needs the radiator's fans to run to be effective. When the fans cycle off, it shouldn't do much cooling. If all else fails, have the PCs gravity draw from a tank of water above them, and have the radiator discharge into that tank. That way the tank temperature changes slowly. Then a bypass valve on the radiator when tank temp is below 15C. The tank is to keep the bypass valve from rapidly cyclingI've got some computer equipment that burns really hot (90 celsius exhaust), and I thought it'd be a great idea to recycle that heat to keep the house warm in the winter.The equipment is in the basement, and I routed the exhaust through 6" insulated duct into a heat register that blows in the home. The problem is it's too damned hot! As a test, I've put the thermostat at 19 degrees - and the house is at 24-25. Furnace hasn't run in a few days.I'm considering venting outside instead, tapping into the exhaust for my HRV. I worry though, that sucking air in the basement and pushing it outdoors like this could have adverse effects such as negative pressure.Should I worry about this? Sucking air in from inside the home, and pushing it straight outside?Thanks for your guidance.·OTHER ANSWER:I've got some computer equipment that burns really hot (90 celsius exhaust), and I thought it'd be a great idea to recycle that heat to keep the house warm in the winter.The equipment is in the basement, and I routed the exhaust through 6" insulated duct into a heat register that blows in the home.

What Happens If I Drive Without Antifreeze in My Car?
Without water and without antifreeze or just without antifreeze? I'll assume that you mean without either, but there is a big difference.This is really simple though. The engine will overheat, quickly, and the seals and gaskets will give out, letting fluids leak in and out of places they should or shouldn't be (like the radiator and water pump, for starters). Eventually, parts of the engine will stop working all together and depending on how long you let this go on for, the engine will need to be taken apart and repaired or it may just need to be melted down for scrap metal, to put it simply.What happens if I drive without antifreeze in my car (no water / no antifreeze)? This is my main question. I've added some follow up questions that are specific to my situation but for the main question I just want to know in general what happens.HISTORYLet's say someone thought that the low antifreeze light was the low windshield washer light and drove a 12 mile trip to work and home from work in the middle of winter for a month? What happens if they drive in the summer?UPDATEFor the record, for me, I realize now that I was driving with low antifreeze except for maybe one or two trips (of about 40). I believe a few trips I ran completely out because the temperature shot up 10 to 20 degrees over the span of a mile. I pulled over as soon as I noticed this and could pull off the road or into a gas station and added coolant.I was able to take it in to get fixed. The mechanics ran pressure tests on it and found the coolant leak in the water pump. They replaced it and it's running fine since then. However, the engine seems to knock / rock very loudly sometimes at start but eventually dies down but that may have already been happening. I don't know. Anyway, no leaks.NOTEI took it to one shop and I said that I had a radiator leak. They ran pressure tests and said the radiator and water pump were leaking. I took it to a second shop and they said that only the water pump was leaking. Is the first shop's pressure tester unreliable?·OTHER ANSWER:What happens if I drive without antifreeze in my car (no water / no antifreeze)? This is my main question.

Water Spilled on My Laptop's Keyboard Duplicate
If your keyboard does different things, it means that its electronic circuit is different. The printed circuit itself of course doesn't change (unless a short circuit occurred); so, this means that there is still water inside your keyboard that conducts electricity between the contacts of the circuit.Unless you can the keyboard out and/or apart to remove the droplets of water and moisture, you will likely want to wait for it to dry. This can be speed up with heat (some extra degrees above a radiator), although excessive heat can shorten the lifetime of the components (do not cook!)This question already has answers here: After spilling water on my Dell Vostro Laptop, 2 keys are not working (5 answers) Closed 4 years ago.Friday night, the night before a long day of travel, I spilled water on my laptop just before I was about to close it down and put it in my bags. I waited a few minutes before fetching paper towels to soak up whatever I could, but did not immediately unplug and disassemble and turn upside down. I'm running a Lenovo IdeaPad, which has a spill-resistant keyboard (I think, because the keys are all separated from one another in independent slots) so it didn't feel like the end of the world at the time to just dry it off, pack it up so that it faced downwards, and go on yesterday's drive with it in the back.However, while the computer itself is not behaving strangely, several keys do not work or are associated with the wrong keystroke. The backspace key, for instance, types 48 instead, while the Enter key creates an endless stream of the number 4. Could this be a sign of deeper damage that I am not aware of? Should I just get a USB keyboard to fix the problem?I have had similar trouble before but went through the proper procedure for fixing it and after a week or two the laptop was on its feet again and a USB keyboard held me over until then.Edit: The laptop is running Windows 10. Right now when I log in, the backgrounds do not appear, several taskbar icons are missing, and the start menu does not come up when clicked. Other than this and the keyboard issue, it does not appear to be badly damaged.·OTHER ANSWER:This question already has answers here: After spilling water on my Dell Vostro Laptop, 2 keys are not working (5 answers) Closed 4 years ago.Friday night, the night before a long day of travel, I spilled water on my laptop just before I was about to close it down and put it in my bags.

Do you want to know about radiator? Here are some frequently asked questions.1. Coolant flush/radiator drain for 99 deville?99 Deville2. 1965 chevy c10 radiator?find a radiator shop and have a new one built using your top and bottom of your radiator, should be less than $2503. HELP: Flushing radiator / MILK SHAKE?If you just flushed with water, you may just need a good raidiator flush from a car parts store, the water on the floor points to a bad heater core (behind the glove box)4. Chevrolet Prism Radiator Spits Water in Reservoir?You have a LEAKY HEAD GASKET that is forcing compression into your cooling system. The most common cause is the use of "universal GREEN"coolant. These coolants will literally eat holes in your cylinder head and head gasket and radiator and water pump over time. STOP USING IT!!! Your engine was designed to use coolants with No silicates, and NO phosphates. Your engine is a SUZUKI engine. Flush out cooling system and use TOYOTA coolant, it will be compatible with ASIAN made engines. NO DEXCOOL either!! HINT: Sometimes you can correct this coolant loss by purchasing a NEW set of head bolts and installing them in the SAME sequence as required for head gasket relacement. DO this AFTER the engine is fully warmed up. BELIEVE me about the coolant. I have rebuilt MANY MANY Jap based engines that were eroded from the use of the GREEN coolant!!! You are ALREADY a victim, I can tell! I have other tips. E-mail me for them!5. Aluminum vs CopperThe thermal conductivity or heat transfer rate of copper is 92% versus aluminum which is approximately 49%. However, the copper fin bonded to the tubes, or water passages, using lead solder is very inefficient and slows the heat transfer rate to just slightly better than that of aluminum. This can be a disadvantage of copper if the bonding process does not allow the copper fin to touch the brass tube, and why not all copper/brass cores of similar design, but different manufactures, transfer heat equally. Copper/brass radiators, because of their weight and durability, have been around a long time and can be easily disassembled and reassembled for cleaning purposes. Not the case with aluminum, unless speaking of the O.E. version that comes with crimp mounted plastic tanks. As a result the life expectancy of the aftermarket aluminum radiators will be far less than that of copper/brass. To better understand the function and performance of any given radiator it helps to understand the "cooling" process and think of it in a way that allows for comparison. The words cooling, or better cooling, or efficient cooling are thrown around a lot in advertising and promotional terms but for the most part un-quantifiable at best without a reference or yardstick to measure by. To measure and control the cooling processes you have to take several variables into consideration. Variables include engine temperature production at different rpm's, or engine operating btu output, coolant absorption rates, coolant flow rates, or gpm's, and coolant temperature reduction rates that will vary with the size of the radiator and the amount of (cfm's), speed, and temperature of the air flowing through the radiator. The only device to actually compare one radiator vs. another with absolute control is to have a wind-tunnel that can duplicate actual driving conditions under various specified conditions. U.S. Radiator built radiator dyno or test stand in 1999 and tested every core design and manufacturer, in both copper/brass and aluminum, for plain and simple temperature drop, inlet to outlet, at specific and controlled parameters. So what did U.S. Radiator learn? First and foremost, they discovered that where the radiator is concerned core design and NOT material had the greatest effect on temperature drop. While all radiator cores might look the same they perform differently based on tube spacing and fins per inch. Heat transfer points where temperature is actually allowed to leave the radiator are where the fin is bonded to the tube. The more transfer points, the greater the temperature drop. A 60's core for example had a 1/2" tube spacing (ie, 1/2" fin between the tubes) and by going from a two row radiator to a four row core design they were able to double the heat transfer points which resulted in a 15-20% increase in temperature drop without changing the other variables (air flow, coolant flow). In the 80's the Japanese came out with a core design in response to the need to down size, which has become the standard, and was efficient enough to allow the re-introduction of aluminum (a less efficient heat transfer material) at the O.E. level. By changing the tube spacing to 3/8", a design referred to as High Efficiency in the industry, more tubes or water passages and fins were allowed across the face of a core with a specific width in inches. The design was simple enough but proved to be very efficient in that more heat transfer points created greater temperature drop inlet to outlet. At this point the move to aluminum construction was purely financial in that raw materials are purchased "by the pound" and a finished aluminum radiator weighs about 25% of a copper/brass unit (dollars per pound being almost equal at that time) and resulted in huge savings to the O.E.'s . This is why we've seen most copper/brass manufacturers either switch to aluminum or fold up their tents permanently. It is important to note that this decision was based solely on financial savings and should not be confused with more efficient. and not intended for use by individuals who are not experienced in the particular field.

Most Commonly Asked Questions About Radiator
Here are top 10 questions about radiator asked by people online.1. Is there a radiator for the Heater of my 1993 Toyota Corrola?Sounds like you might have had a dirty cooling system at one time, if I was you I would try the thermostat first and go from there. You radiator could partially plugged but is your car running hot?2. What is the purpose of the radiator overflow bottle?Yes. The coolant recovery system consists of this overflow bottle. This allows the coolant that normally escapes from the radiator, due to expansion from the heat of operating temperatures, to be retained. When the engine cools the excess is drawn back into the radiator due to a vacuum effect from the cooling thus maintaining the system at full capacity,( providing there are no leaks in the system). This is a continuous process and provided the level in the reservoir is maintained you should not have to add coolant to the radiator. Never introduce liquids to a hot system, it can cause a need for major repairs3. Radiator fan kicking in at high temperature?you have prevalent fan at an analogous time as vehicle reaches working temp,ordinary;start up vehicle and watch the Fan it is going to ought to work together at an analogous time as temp reaches mid-style;No then discover the Rad Fan Relay and the Fuse;Fuse will possibly be under Hood in skill Fuse field-sturdy then detect the Relay this is in field or exterior;observe you are a Gambler while you are working this motor vehicle with temp Bumping warm ; An Overtemp will blow a Head Gasket and might warp the pinnacle,Head Gasket substitute 1000 funds;The Temp Senser feeds in the present day on your interior temp show; 2nd step initiate vehicle after it has cooled, 0.33 step choose for on Air-Cond,and turn the choose for on Fan that Blows throughout the time of Evaporator ,this is interior the vehicle,At any temp the extreme velocity Radiator Fan will ought back on and save on,it is with Eng at Idle and Hood open; confident sturdy -No detect the Senser that Feeds percentM. returned area of Eng,Disconnect the Elec Plug. you will ought to have Continous extreme velocity Fan ;4. Why does my radiator shudder?I agree. It's probably air. Is the radiator firm on the floor? I mean is one leg slightly off? Maybe a board has dropped, or the carpet is very matted, causing it to shake.5. What is the best radiator sealer?I have had the best luck with sealers containing sodium silicate (water glass). These also tend to contain copper particles, are packaged in clear bottles and have the word "copper" in the name or prominently listed as an ingredient (e.g. Copper Seal, Liquid Copper), so it is easy to spot them on the shelf. The U. S. Navy used Bar's Leaks to seal the heat exchanger in the first nuclear submarine (USS Nautilus). That saved the first successful mission to cross the North Pole under the ice.What is the best radiator sealer?6. Do I have a leak in my radiator?Yes you have a leak. The big question is where. If you never see coolant on the ground it may be an internal engine gasket such as your cylinder head gasket. The bubbles may be a good secondary indicator of such problems. Have your cooling system pressure tested as well as testing the coolant for signs for hydrocarbons. The hose blowing off also maybe a sign your head gasket is blown. Have it checked out now while your engine is still repairable. As far as the tank staying full it may have to much pressure to draw it back in to the radiator. Due to blown headgasket. Check your engine oil and if it is white and milky you have a blown head gasket for sure. Hopefully it's something more simple then it seems :)7. problem with radiator, please help!!!?DON'T FLUSH THE RADIATOR, no matter what your mechanic suggests. 9 times out of 10 you will be replacing it a month later. Your radiator will rust and crack over time, but any build-up in there is keeping those weak spots sealed. A flush will remove all of that and weaken the radiator. The most likely problem is with your thermostat, especially if you just replaced the water pump. Start there, it's not too expensive.

Find Answers to the Hottest Questions About Radiator
Here are top 10 questions about radiator asked by people online.1. Radiator fan not kicking in?you have commonplace fan whilst motor vehicle reaches working temp,ordinary;commence motor vehicle and watch the Fan it would have interaction whilst temp reaches mid-variety;No then discover the Rad Fan Relay and the Fuse;Fuse would be under Hood in ability Fuse container-solid then discover the Relay it could be in container or outdoors;observe you are a Gambler while you are working this motor vehicle with temp Bumping warm ; An Overtemp will blow a Head Gasket and can warp the top,Head Gasket replace one thousand funds;The Temp Senser feeds on on your interior temp exhibit; 2d step commence motor vehicle after it has cooled, third step elect Air-Cond,and turn the elect Fan that Blows in the time of Evaporator ,it quite is interior the motor vehicle,At any temp the intense velocity Radiator Fan could come on and proceed to exist,it quite is with Eng at Idle and Hood open; particular solid -No discover the Senser that Feeds %M. lower back ingredient of Eng,Disconnect the Elec Plug. you might have Continous intense velocity Fan ;.2. radiator is wasting water but there is no leaks ?If it is just straight water in the cooling system, it tends to would issapear'. The best way to fix that would be too put a natural based coolant in instead3. 1996 toyota camry radiator?if it's coming around the fan it's not the radaitor, more likely the water pump4. Can I paint a radiator with matt emulsion?Special! Special! Special! Special!5. How difficult is it to change the radiator fan?Normally, the fan will not spin at the same RPM as the engine. This is the purpose of the fan clutch. On the fan clutch sits a little thermal spring that engages the clutch to spin the fan at the same rpm as the motor when the motor gets hotter than normal. Being able to hold onto the fan while the motor is running, is normal (not recommended, but normal). You can test the clutch by heating it and then trying to spin the fan while the motor is off. If it is still easy to spin, you could have a bad fan clutch, or you did not heat it enough. It is kind of a crappy way to test. You not having cooling issues leads me to guess that your clutch is alright. But I do not know what type of climate you live it, nor do I know in what condition your clutch is. They can actually be difficult to replace. Easy theory, but actually doing the job may be harder than you think. They are threaded onto the water pump pulley (just one big threaded stud). To remove you need to either be really crafty, or you need a wrench designed to hold the pulley in place while you loosen the clutch and fan assembly. No, the pulley drive belt is not enough to keep the pulley from turning (it will either slip or you will turn the crank of the motor). Usually they are on there pretty tight! When I replaced my water pump on my truck, I could not remove the fand and clutch from the water pump while in the truck (I had to remove my radiator shroud and remove it all in one piece) then I had to weld the old water pump impeller to the casting to keep it from spinning then broke it loose with a 2ft breaker bar! Seriously. Once you get the old one off, remove the fan and bolt it to your new clutch unit. Then thread it on the water pump.6. Radiator fluid in my cylinders?Chances are that when you drained the radiator your thermostat was closed and your block never drained. Be sure you do a very good job clean up and you now may have to pull the oil pan to completely clean this out7. Can A Radiator hose be clogged or bad radiator ?Bad thermostat. Maybe bad thermostatic switch that controls the fan. Is the fan coming on? Excess pressure could be a bad head gasket blowing exhaust gases into the cooling system. Rare but could be or yeah old plugged up radiator.
