Exclamation My natural gas steam heat boiler

Hi,
Can some one please help me asap? I am renovating my kitchen and bathroom and ran into a big problem, well it is for me anyway. there are steam radiators in both roomds that I want to remove and I have no idea how to drain the system and then refill it. Capping off the pipes isnt a problem I got that much figured out. My kitchen has been torn apart since late april and it is driving me crazy I have to carry my dishes to my basement to wash them because the radiator in the ktchen is where the sink goes and I' stuck *"PLEASE"* someone "HELP"!

What are you going to do for heat in the kitchen after you remove the radiators?

If it is steam, then their is nothing but air in the radiator. If it is water, that is a different story.

The one who could best help you at this point is a heating contractor that KNOWS STEAM HEAT! He will probably advise you that you can't just pull and cap existing radiators.

Hi Lura,

I am curious how easy is it to perform this. I may need to do it one day.

If steam it is easy to remove and cap. It is the putting back together and working properly that is the problem.
