This is another important measurement when considering a replacement radiator. If two radiator inlet points aren’t the same distance from the wall, you’ll once again be in a position where pipework needs to be moved.
To measure this, simply use the same centre point of the pipe from your previous measurement and note the distance from here to the near wall. We recommend doing this for both pipes, though the measurements should be the same.
Most radiator manufacturers will have the exact measurements of their radiators available on their website which can help when choosing a replacement.
