I know there is a heating group but don't know what it's called so
thought I'd pop in here (been a while since I've asked anything in
here) and ask if anyone can help me with this and also perhaps lead me
to what the heating group is called.
We had a kitchen redo this past year. We had had runtels put in
several rooms a couple of years before because this is a cottage and
these runtels take up a smaller space in some areas of our home.
We did not have the runtel put on our outside kitchen wall because
this is where the eating table is now and I can't stop the heat from
coming out of the runtel -- and I hate sitting near heat of any kind.
My question is ---
Is there any way to have that runtel put on the wall but be able to
have some kind of shutoff so that I can turn it off and on?
I know that if I had a cellar I could probably go down and turn some
valves -- we don't have a cellar - it's a dirt crawl space actually
and to be honest -- at the young age of 62 - I don't want to crawl
Last winter here was very very warm (coast of southern Maine) and we
sure didn't need that runtel at all -- never know what kind of winter
will have this coming one so thought it would be smarter to have it
there than not have it there -- however, I really don't want the heat
from that if I don't need it -- especially with the oil prices now.
We have forced hot water.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
