Removing 1 Radiator on 1 pipe steam system
We have a 1-pipe steam system, boiler recently replaced, and overall it's working well, except in our bedroom where it's just way too hot. There are 10 radiators total in the house (3.5 stories) and the master bedroom is the only room with 2 radiators in it. We kept one of them turned off for the entire Winter and were plenty warm. So I'm thinking about removing that one, to gain more space. If I don't want to remove the whole riser, would it be ok to remove the radiator and leave the riser in place, and just cap it where it comes out of the floor? Would I need to add a valve? Could it potentially cause problems because there's no longer a radiator holding it up? I have a feeling the pros on here will hate this whole question for several reasons but ok, have at it
