Lightbulb Remove paint

Remove excess layers of paint.
The paint tends to insulate the radiator.

improving the efficiency of cast iron radiators

I seen on one of the home improvement shows, I think it was ask this old house, that there is somt type of valve that can be put on the radiator to make the unit operate more efficeintly. But, i have not been able to find the web site or the valve.

The valves you are referring to are made by, Honeywell, Danfoss and Ammack. They make non-electric thermostatically controlled valves for Steam 1-pipe, 2-pipe and hot water systems. If you search the web for radiator valves or thermostats you will see these companies and their products.
