I live in a brownstone built in 1900 converted to separate apartments in early 1970’s (I think). We have a single pipe steam heat system and recently replaced the boiler.
My unit is one that’s ridiculously hot and I’ve been trying to figure out how I can adapt my radiator setup to be able to adjust that.
However I don’t know what sort of radiator this is and unlike standard ones I’m familiar with where the air valve can be replaced with a TRV (plus an air valve) I’m not sure the same thing can be done with this one.
The dimensions of its metal outer container are 56”x22”x8” and here is what the inside looks like:
Given the size of this, if it’s ancient maybe I’d consider something smaller that will bake my space less and be adjustable, but if I can install an adjustable valve on this thing as is even that would be an improvement but my understanding is that sensor isn’t supposed to be inside the covered unit to properly read temperature.
Any advance or words of wisdom about what I’ve got here would be appreciated.
