Does anyone know if there's such a thing as a toe-kick radiator that
works for a steam system? My kitchen is severely lacking in wall
space, and I'd love to get rid of the four-foot-long radiator. I've
seen toe-kick radiators for electric and hot water systems, but my
understanding is that for steam, you need the thermal mass of a bunch
of cast iron, as the pipes cool quickly when the boiler shuts down.
Ona positive not, I fired up the boiler for a test this morning, and
it worked fine, as it has every year since it was installed in 1985.
