Decorative c. 1920 Cast Iron Hot Water Radiators

I am planning to update the heating system by removing the gas-fired pumped hot water heating system with heat-pumps. This transition will happen in May/June 2022.

All from a 4 story brownstone in Brooklyn, NY.

Available: 18 decorative cast iron radiators of various sizes. See attached list w/sizes. Didn't include pictures of all, but attached should give you the idea of what's what.

All in service today (especially today being so cold!), without leaks.

$2000 for the lot. All will be disconnected and drained. Must be picked-up in Brooklyn.

If you interested, I also have fully functional 25-year old Utica 100,000 BTU gas fired hot water boiler, complete with pump, 1-year old gas valve, controls, etc... Free if you take it with the radiators.

    Too far away for me to consider.
    Great looking building. The rad fit in so well with that era of decor.

    What prompted this upgrade. I assume minisplits...

    Before you tear these out, you'll need to live with the heat pump for a winter. Given heat pumps' extreme lack of comfort, I bet you won't make it past mid-December without re-starting the boiler.
