Steam radiators not heating up
I've got a problem with 2 radiators in my home. The home is 80 years old, 2 stories, gas fired boiler, with one pipe steam radiators. I bought the house one year ago and my plumber replaced all the radiator steam vents last winter. The house thermostat is in the dining room and unfortunately, that's where one of the radiators that's not heating up well is. The other is in the kitchen. I've replaced the steam vents again with adjustable ones and that hasn't helped. The pipes were not completely insulated, so I've done that but it also hasn't helped. The pipes to these two radiators get hot when the boiler is on, so I know there's heat getting to the general area, but the pipes coming out of the floor aren't very hot, and as I've said, the radiators are too cool. The second floor of the house is uncomfortably warm since the boiler has to work hard to heat the dining room and my gas bills are too high. Does anybody have any suggestions for next steps? Thank you!
