  1. my dads home built in 1930 or so is a three 3 family home with two apartments upstairs and first floor is a single apartment where they reside and also have half finished basement with bedroom. one of the two tenants upstairs complained that it was not that warm last winter now that this winter is almost upon us i was looking into possible causes of this condition. ive noticed that the vent on the main in the basement is spitting brown water and vapor and was wondering if that could be the cause of the radiators not really gettiing at full temperature thus not warming that apartment fully.(its a single pipe steam system) or could it be the radiator vents.also no isulation on steam mains in basement..its seemed ok to me when i was up there but i like the cold weather so im not a good judge. im probably going to change the vent anyway. also on first floor they have two radiators turned off because it gets too warm,it was renovated so i just think its well insulated.my mom raises thermostat to 78 degrees or more sometimes , im thinking thats a little too high
