This Old House

We live in an 85 year old home at the Jersey Shore. The home was built with lathe and plaster walls and no insulation. We have a hot water gas fired boiler to heat 2,600 square feet. The system uses original cast iron radiators to distribute the hot water. Just slid sections of Reflectix between the radiators and the outside walls. The radiator covers hide them so they’re not visible. Expecting to have the house heat up faster and save on heat loss.
