Hi all - Do any of you have steam radiator heating? My steam radiator has been horrible lately banging (so loud) every 30 min or so 24/7. I lived here the past 2 years and it was fine but this year it has been unbearable and waking me up every hour at night. I keep putting in work requests but nothing has been fixed. Any help would be appreciated I’m on the edge

Look up how to level it — depending on your setup it’s something you can do yourself. Or truly worth paying for a handyman to do if your building is sluggish. My quality of life went up sooo much when I had mine fixed!

We learned a combination of radiators to switch off and which to leave on. It was a pain but I think the only other scenario is for the building to bleed the system entirely.

Yea, I moved into a apartment with steam heating this past August. I’m used to it after months and barely notice it now. Just one of the many quirks of being in a very old pre-war, at least in my case.

I found a unit bordering Gowanus/Park Slope. I just started reading about the Gowanus canal toxicity & EPA clean up. Would you recommend staying away from the area?
