Ask THIS OLD HOUSE

Richard Trethewey replies: The radiators you’re referring to are also called flat-panel radiators; we used them recently at the Manchester project. They’re compatible only with hot-water heating systems—not steam— but unlike freestanding or baseboard radiators, the flat-panels hang from the wall, saving floor space.

As an avid do-it-yourselfer, my husband is always happy when the next issue of TOH comes in the mail. When the July/August 2002 issue arrived, though, it was quite a surprise to see a house exactly like ours featured in “Suburban Renewal” (right).
