i am in a position to redesign my radiator network somewhat because i gutted a lot of my house.

i am curious why radiators are often positioned right below a window when it seems very energy inefficient to me since the window seems like it would draw a lot of the heat out. particularly in one room i have two radiators and i want to eliminate one, i am thinking the one below the window since i think it would be better to position then towards the inside of a room for heat efficiency.

thanks

So that you don't freeze when you walk by or sit near the window. The heat is put at the greatest loss area, generally the windows.
