VIDEO: Steve Maxwell on why refurbished cast-iron rads are making a comeback
Cast-iron rads, refurbished and ready to easily install, are cost-effective, environmentally responsible, and physically beauttful. Why did we ever fall out of love with them?

Steve Maxwell has sent us an excellent feature article about refurbished cast iron rads. It will appear in our next print issue of Canadian Contractor. Sorry to tease you with that, and not have it up online yet, but here’s a video in which Steve tells us why an old idea in home heating is about as cutting edge as it ever was…
Cast iron radiators aren’t something most people think about when considering a new heating system, but cast iron radiators have a lot going for them. They may be an old idea, but they still make sense because people will always love snuggling up to something warm on cold days. And who doesn’t like to dry mitts, hats and coats quickly and well? Reclaimed iron rads are available from specialty refurbishing shops for new construction and old. The shop I chose to buy from for my project is in a place called St-Jean Port-Joli, Quebec, Canada.
