I'm in the process of rennovating a garage apartment in a 1920s era house, and found three old cast iron natural gas powered steam radiators. I am torn between actually using one or more of them for heating the space, using them for decoration somehow or selling them. Does anyone know: (1) anyone who still knows how to hook them up/make them work; (2) how much they would be worth to someone who wants to use them in their own older house; or (3) how much they would be worth as scrap metal (they weigh about 200+ pounds each). Number 3 is obviously not the one I want to use, but times are tight, and I could use help paying for the other parts of the rennovation. I would appreciate the collective wisdom of the forum on this issue. Thanks in advance.

I can't remember the name of the store at this moment, but there is and architectural/antique business on Ruiz St. The have literally hundreds of salvaged doors, thousands of parts, windows, moulding, banisters, mantels etc....and I would put money down that they have old radiators. This place is huge. You may want to look them up under "antiques" and talk to them about your options. Just look for the address on Ruiz. If I can remember it I'll come back and post it.

I've seen some creative uses for those old great radiators. Good luck!

The place on Ruiz St. might be Architectural Warehouse Antiques.
