What one is better, double or single radiator? What is the difference and does it cost much more to heat a double?

Thanks

if we assume a double is exactly double the output for simplicity then yes it costs 2x as much to run buuuuttt
once the room is warm enough it will turn off so in effect will just warm up quicker so cost slightly less or slightly more
now iff you double say half the radiators in the house and the boiler is only just big enough then the new radiators will give out more heat but may run colder so warm up quicker being doubles but the singles giving out less heat will take longer than before to warm the room
