shifting radiator position?

bethb Member Posts: 1
I am moving into a new condo and one issue is the direction of a radiator in the living room. I don't want to replace the radiator, just spin it around so that it runs the length of the room north-south, instead of the width of the room east-west. Is that possible? Is it expensive for a plumber to do? I'm afraid my furniture won't fit in the room the way the radiator is currently positioned!

    It depends....

    If it is steam, it might not be easy or feasible.

    If it is hot water, it has a 50/50 chance of being moved.

    If the space below you is an occupied unit, you will need their permission to do the work.

    If the space below you is a concrete floor, it could be VERY expensive.

    Best see the advice of a practiced professional.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.
