More kick space heater stuff

I am in the process of piping a zone for my house which consists of (2) small BR's, (1) 1/2 bath and a bath / laundry room. I will bu using fintube in the BR's and 1/2 bath however, a kickspace heater would be ideal for the bath/laundry room. I was going to pipe a 3/4" loop. Should I just tie in the kickspace heater in the loop (using reducers) at the beginning or end of the loop? Also, are they noisy to the point of irritating?
Thanks

This subject just came up recently. If you go to the Beacon-Morris website, there are suggestions for piping up kick-space heaters. It depends upon what kind of system you have - e.g., 2-pipe, 1-pipe series, or monoflo.

The Beacon-Morris units have a two-speed fan. On slow speed, they aren't overly noisey.

These come in different sizes, but they are more for supplemental heat. A kick-space heater may not be adequate for your bath/laundry room. You can do a quicky heat loss calculation for that room.
