In my 1950s rambler house, all the heating is via water-based baseboard units. These units are all tied by a single piping loop to a boiler in the “center” of the house. The main room has the majority of the units by simple length.
One unit in particular is on a shared wall between the main room and a bedroom. This bedroom is often colder than the rest of the house. I am wondering if strategic holes in this shared wall can improve the temperature in this bedroom.
Specifically, I have heard of the “popcan solar heater” concept, and to my way of thinking, the same idea should work for this baseboard unit, right? So if I drill holes at the base of the wall below the unit that is in the main room, the unit should pull cold air from the bedroom through the unit and warm it. If I also drill holes at the ceiling in the same wall to match, then there should be an air exchange so to speak.
Does this idea make sense? Will this air exchange make any appreciable difference in the temperature in the bedroom, or would I be damaging a wall with no noticeable benefit?
