Webster System (in wall) Maintenance
Last summer I bought a home with Webster System radiators (convectors) that are recessed in the wall as described in this catalog (https://heatinghelp.com/assets/documents/85.pdf
). The home was built in 1952 and the current boiler was installed in 1993. I doubt that any maintenance has been preformed since then. Steam heat is very unusual in this part of Jersey and it took me a while to find someone who would agree to come out and service the boiler. They did a basic flush and systems check, but I have been learning a lot more reading the resources on this site.
The heat seems to be working well. I have heard a little knocking but not too often. Reading the forums it seems it would be wise to replace the thermostatic traps on the radiators. Is this something I should wait till spring and do it all at once? There are a lot of them and he system has 2 zones. I suppose I could do the smaller zone and see how it goes. How do I choose a replacement part, I really have no idea where to start?
I also think the water level is far to high on the boiler, but thats a question for another post. Thank you for any advice you may have.
