I have a KA-2 with radiant floor heat. But when the temps get way down like we have recently had the office/mud room could use a bit more heat. I was wondering about a small section of radiator that I could run some pex to with a small circulator.
Would anyone have some suggestions on a radiator? Anyone have something that would like to part with?

I have lots of radiators but it would be wicked expensive to ship. search for cast iron radiator on your area craigslist. You should have no trouble finding something local

For a small area like that I suggest a small wall or floor mount toe kick heater. I had one in my living room that I hooked up to a solar system. It put out decent heat for it's size. I did a lot of research before deciding on this unit. I had the type FS-A. You need a 110 volt power source available for the small fan and you can run 1/2 inch copper or pex rated for heating. The coil unit mounts to the wall with two screws and the cabinet sits over it and secures to the coil unit with two screws on the sides. Neat little units. This spring one of my projects is to put one in two of the upstairs bedrooms. I'm remodeling the upstairs and before I replace the floors I'll run more electrical and pipe the hot water to these guys. The one I had was about 4 inches deep and 24 inches long by if I remember right 24 inches high.
