I live in Southern NY and bought an old house with Steam Radiator Gas Heat. I am lucky to live in a neighborhood with ridiculously inexpensive municipal electric.
I would love to permanently remove my bulky steam radiators and replace with an Electric outfit and eventually remove my boiler. Because I am on a tight budget, its it possible to remove the radiators room to room as I remodel/upgrade each room as I go? Do I just cap them off and hide the pipes below the sub-floor?
I understand that steam heat is efficient and even, however, my neighborhood has pretty much all converted to electric with bills never over $200...which doesn't compare to my HUGE winter gas bills.
Thanks for any info!
