Replace radiator with one that takes up less space?
I’ve read a lot of really helpful threads on this site, some of which had to do with replacing radiators. We’re hoping to replace our weird cylindrical cast iron radiator with something that takes up less floor space.
We would settle for a more typical rectangular radiator, like the other ones in our home, but wasn’t sure if there is a better solution for this space.
We currently have steam radiators throughout our first and second floor and the system seems to work reasonably well. However, this radiator is a bit of an eye sore and we’d like it to blend in a bit more. I’ve seen some stuff about cast iron baseboard, or low-profile cast iron radiators, but wasn’t sure what would be the right choice here.
Please excuse the mess. We just had some work done in that area, including redoing the walls which were old wainscoting that was falling apart.
Thanks in advance!
