    I need to hang a radiator (160cm wide, 50cm high, total weight around 35kg) via two brackets to a plasterboard wall. The wall is external, so that it has studs (about 12mm deep and 50mm wide) behind the plasterboard and then bricks behind the studs. I am lucky enough to have studs in...

    Hi. I bought a one-and-a-half story 1930s house a few weeks ago and found that the baseboard radiators on the main level are very noisy when the hot water heat is on. The upper story radiators are not nearly as obnoxious. It's very distracting and sleeping is a problem. I had a guy from a...

    I am considering replacing my oil steam boiler and radiators with a hydro air system. I keep hearing that steam heat is the most comfortable. Am I crazy to change over to hydro air? Background: - Original steam heating system from 1939 (when house built) - 3600 sf house located in NYC...
