My husband and I bought our 80-some year old house about 2 years ago. The house currently has hot water baseboard heaters but we'd love to replace them. The baseboard heaters are very long, prevent us from pushing things up against the walls, and they were never installed correctly so the covers are always falling off. My husband would like to get new panel-style radiators that we can mount on the wall. I'm wondering if we should just go to our local salvage center and buy some old cast iron radiators. Does anyone have experience with this? How much do the panel-style wall-mounted radiators cost? And where would we buy them? I've been poking around online and I get the impression that we'd need to purchase them through a heating contractor, but my husband wants to install them himself. Maybe we'd be better off getting a contractor to do the installation? Any advice is appreciated!
