One too hot room, help..


I have steam heat, one pipe system. I have a room that is toooo hot, since it's a one pipe system I can't close the valve partially, it has to be either fully open or fully closed. I know there are steam vents out there that are adjustable, does anyone know or have tried any of those adjustable vents and would recommend any? Thanks, I figure if I can use an adjustable vent and minimize the heat in that room, that would help. The radiator is not that big, but neither is the room size, lol. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks

I posted a detailed description of how I did this very thing. Radiator Tune Up goes WELL! How I did it.

I used Honeywell valve bodies and thermostatic valves with Vari-valve adjustable vents. Got a good deal on the valves on ebay.

I am very happy with them.
