A very nice, but pricey baseboard radiator. Lots of heat and its sleek lines are perfect to help it disappear along the walls. We have an historic home and worried that it might be too contemporary. But when the room is put back together, it's not jarring at all. Well designed to hug the wall and deliver a lot of heat in a small space. Perfect!

The previous owners of this 1734 home had installed an earlier version in another room of the house. In order to hide the coils when looking down, they had an angled strip of metal fabricated to work. Runtal must have taken this hint, because this newer version has a perforated shield on the top edge that does the trick, making it even better than the original one we have.

Bought two UF 12 radiators for a low temp hydronic system I put together in my home running off a hot water tank.

The install was easy, I found that teflon tape alone was not enough to seal the plugs and the valves to the radiator and I ended up using rector seal no 5 instead.

I purchased these because I needed a hydronic baseboard radiator and didn't want to use sharkfin as they look dated.

My Complaint:
On the 12' radiators there is a joint in the top mesh cover welded to the radiator and the radiator tends to flex more at this point. The radiators come with 4 mounting brackets. 4 is not enough as there is alot of flex in these radiators due to the length and I wish I had 2 more mounting brackets per radiator to keep them straight along the wall.

I emailed Runtal a week ago about getting more brackets but haven't received a response yet. I guess I will have to call them next.

Comments about 3 ft UF-8 Baseboard Radiator:

The people at supply house were very helpful. These radiators are easy to install and work fantastic. We have them in a mixed system (Old style 1926 radiators and these. The high efficiency baseboards could not keep up). the radiators are close to the wall and 1" shorter than the radiator length.

Comments about 4 ft UF-2 Baseboard Radiator:

These baseboard heaters look great, save space, as they are half the depth of a standard baseboard heater. They also have a large thermal mass & hold the heat well. The 4' section we purchased was about 25 lb vs 3 or 4 lb for standard baseboard heater.

  • 3.5 ft UF-2 Baseboard Radiator

    Q:

    I want to use these where the supply and return sides are on the bottom for some locations and the side for others. Do I need to order additional parts to make that happen? Also, do the air vents come with these or is that something that should be ordered?

    Q:

    Can these radiators be painted?
    Asked on 5/30/2015 by Anita from NYC

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, Radiators can be painted after sanding with fine grit paper to dull the high gloss and by wiping with solvent or a tack rag. Use only oil-based enamel paint (alkyd, acrylic, urethane, epoxy) –do not use latex or lacquer paint Use urethane or epoxy enamel for radiators located in harsh environments. Spray the paint to achieve an even coating, and let dry completely before heating the radiator.

  • 4 ft UF-2 Baseboard Radiator

    Q:

    My existing baseboard heaters are supplied with 3/4" pipe and the system is a single zone. The bathroom is in the middle of the house where I want to replace the old baseboard with a 4ft unit. The sp says it is 1/2" threads on the supply pipe. Will this slow down the flow to the whole heating system in the house?

      A:

      I know in my radiators a majority of the heart comes from the fins behind
      the solid fronts. I world's think you would end up heating the interior of
      the walk rather than the room. They are only an inch deep...just hang them
      on the exterior.

      These radiators could be installed in a niche if you want to take the time
      to build one. Still need an inch or better clearance above and below for
      air circulation.

  • 2 ft UF-2 Baseboard Radiator

    Q:

    Can all UF series "baseboards" also be mounted on the wall like a wall radiator? Also can these be piped from the rear? Lastly, are the valves absolutely required or can you just pipe a direct connection and hide the copper pipe with vertical trim pieces?
    Asked on 9/23/2014 by Stephen from Marblehead, MA

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The UF radiators are a wall mounted radiator. Each unit is shipped with the wall mounting, which is recommended to mount the units 3" above the floor. The pipes can not be piped from the rear, only the bottom or the sides of the unit. Consult with local code to determine if the valve shut offs are required, as not all locations need them installed.

    Q:

    Do the end caps extend the length beyond the 48"?
    Asked on 9/21/2014 by Radiator Lover from Massachusettes

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, the end caps will extend the baseboard slightly depending on which one is used. The caps require a 2" over lap so the 6" end caps would extend by at least 4", and the 12" end caps would extend by at least 10".

      You can join up to 7 baseboards in series, or up to a combined total of 30,000 BTU's. You can use a 1/2" threaded nipple to connect the two baseboards together.

    Q:

    I am a senior citizen with a small old house. Can this type of Baseboard Radiator be used to replace the cast iron radiators seen in many older homes? I have two of the 'cast iron oldies' in my living room and one in my dining room. They take up a lot of room and are hard to clean.

      A:

      We replaced several of the old radiators in our house with the Runtal flat units. They are great. You just need to match up the BTU output of the new radiators with the output of the old ones to get the same amount of heat. Several estimators are available online to compute how much heat your "oldies" give off based on number of tubes, water temperature and length.
      Runtal also makes excellent flat panels as well as baseboards. We have 6" baseboards in the bathrooms. We removed the wide old radiators in some of the rooms and placed the wall mounted larger panels in their place . They only extend about 2" off of the wall and actually are quite modern and attractive. You will get much more heat off of a larger panel vs a long run of 6" baseboard.
      Hope the helps.

      A:

      Assuming you have hot water heat then yes. These will not work on steam I
      don't think. Also, they do not have the mass of cast iron. They are heavy
      gauge steel. That means two things. One, they are somewhat more susceptible
      to water quality and O2 causing rust and Two, they will not retain the heat
      as long which may cause your boiler to cycle more often. I would ask your
      heating contractor about it since you may need more of this stuff then you
      think. There are also cheaper alternatives that may work just as well or
      better. Not that this is a bad product. I like it but I found you sometimes
      need more of it than you think to keep the temperature up.

      Hi,
      My husband is a general contractor and he said that yes, these can be used
      to replace your old bulky cast iron radiators. We have cast iron radiators
      in the older part of our home (built in 1932), but we chose this product
      when we built an addition on our home. My husband says you just need to
      make you purchase the correct size, meaning that the supply and return
      lines must be in the same location or very close proximity to that of the
      existing cast iron radiators.. A plumber should be able to confirm the
      exact size you would need.
      Hope this helps!
