I live in a 1927 Dutch Colonial. We bought the house 2 1/2 years ago at which time a new furnace had been installed. At some point the previous owners had changed the radiators to convectors. Not baseboard but larger units. They are covered units that take up a similar amount of room to a covered radiator. I am wondering if replacing them with radiators would be beneficial to heating the home.
I have to insulate the walls still, after I replace the knob and tube, as they have none but our attic has been insulated with two layers of fiberglass batts. Any thoughts?
