steam heat radiator

I want to change the valve on the side of my old radiators. Should I do it when there is no heat going thru, like the summer time? Does it matter?

steam heat radiator

you most definitely do NOT want to do it while the the boiler is active and steam is moving through the system; so turn it off. As for whether you do it in summer or winter, it is up to you. I'd rather do it in summer when you don't need heat, and therefore aren't under the gun to get the thing changed quickly.
