Should I replace these radiators?
I am remodeling a kitchen, and I would like to know if I should keep or replace three radiators. My steam system is a one-pipe steam system, but it has several of these baseboard two-pipe radiators that are fed using copper pipes from the steam mains. They are all on the first-floor of the house. Our local plumber told me these radiators are really for a hot-water system, but somehow they were made to work on this steam system. They make minor water-hammer noises, but other than that, they work fine. I've attached pictures of them.
The room is 11' by 25', and as part of the remodeling we will be adding foam insulation to the walls and ceiling.
Thanks for your help,
