So I have learned a lot lately about steam radiators, and how you don't actually have to live with them sputtering or banging all night.
I never knew vents were supposed to shut as soon as the steam reached them, but now I'm confused: if the boiler is running and every vent is shut, won't pressure continue to rise?
As a bonus question, I have read tutorials that say the vent should be sized in proportion to the radiator not the run length, but the maker of the vents say it should be based on run length. Is there a "right" answer to this? I'm just going to switch them around until it feels right.
