wall heating units

Just got done remodeling our house we bought last year.... I kept these old wall units because they add character... The coils are set into the all so I also didn't want to have to move the plumbing downstairs. These units sit in the wall about 4-5 inches under each Window. We have some of the windows replaced. I have noticed these metal 'boxes', are giving off a lot of cold. Is there something I can do to insulate these? I have oil whe u take the face off these units its basically a baseboard coil in it. I bleeder is on top.

Wondering what my options are. Will be switching to gas hopefully this year. But these metal cases get so cold.

Not without ruining your nice work. I doubt if there is any room behind the metal box and the sheathing of the exterior walls, so it is what it is, as they say.
