Installing baseboard hot water radiator help


My neighbor has a brand new Buderus natural gas boiler, but only her first floor has radiators on it. I'm sure the boiler is spec'd for at least the entire house.

I have some brand new radiators in my basement and I'd like to help her install them in her upstairs.

I assume in theory this is very simple? Just pop in a T in the basement and extend the pipe upstairs and loop it around, eh? Then run the return tapped into the existing return?

Any advice here? I've become pretty good at sweating joints and running pipes all over the place. Would be cool to get her hooked up.

Thanks.

Installing baseboard hot water radiator help


thanks. yea, i was thinking that would be wise.
so, just T off the hot coming out of the boiler, put a zone valve on it or something?
should be the valve be wired with a thermostat?
