Adding a Radiator to an existing one pipe steam system

Kat24Kat24 Posts: 1Member
I have a well insulated three season room that I am considering adding heat to to extend it's use through the winter.

On the opposite side of the wall adjoining the three season room is a steam radiator. I am wondering if it is ok to replace the current L joint to the existing radiator with a T joint, and then have a pipe added to run from the T joint through the wall to a new small radiator to heat the three season room? The additional piping run would be no more than 2' long. The three season room is approximately 200 sq feet. So in other words I'd have two radiators running off the same pipe.

I am researching ideas as this is a job I'd have to hire out. Which brings me to a second question -- who do I call to work on an older rad steam system? Is this a job for a plumber or should I be looking elsewhere?
