              I have been adding and tweaking valves for years. Doubles on some, etc. Have apt in one pipe steam home so this really helps achieve a better overall balance.

              Thoroughly modernized cast-iron radiator

                    Replacing all the valves on my cast iron radiators in our old farmhouse allows us to exactly tailor our heating load to how many occupants are in the house-- a HUGE savings! Coupled with a "smart" circulating pump (Grundfos Alpha), our condensing boiler sips fuel.
                    The only negative is that some people have a hard time figuring out what the settings mean (i.e. numbers 1-5, rather than actual degrees), but what would be the meaning of degrees down near the floor anyway?

                                I used this product to replace a manual valve on a hotwater radiator in my grandson's room. This valve is not "thermostatic" until a thermostatic actuator is installed on it. By itself it's just a manual valve. Fortuanltely I was aware of this before ordering. I installed the valve AND actuator without issue. It is performing as expected and my grandson's room is no longer overheating.

                                      Purchased these and had them installed to replace decades old plain radiator valves. These thermostatic valves seem good so far, but the heat has only recently needed to be turned on. I can definitely tell that they seem to be keeping the temperature cooler intentionally in some rooms. These seem to be great valves from my research and early initial experience.

                                            A hart to find part. Worked well. Instructions a little hard to interpret, but a simple installation.

                                                  You have to purchase the thermostatic valve body also. This setup works great and was very easy to swap out with the Myson valve I had on the radiator previously. I put these in all of the bedrooms and now people can have their room as cool or as warm as they want it.

                                                        These were put into use in our condo, while also purchasing many for each apt in the building (12 units). The thermostat settings are rated from 1-5, with the side of the box equating these numbers to actual temperature settings. As the steam radiators are right next to the walls, the temperature at the walls is colder than the general temp of the room (no insulation), so these numbers don't apply (not even close). Once we figured that out, we just spent a couple of days tweaking the settings on each thermostat until we got the right temperature setting for the room. Our temperature in the condo is now VERY steady and consistent 70 +/- 1 degree. Most dial settings are between 2 and 3.

                                                        Very nice.

The controller replaces the basic knob and adjusts the temperature automatically. The valve in the room with the thermostat must use the basic knob, and the other rooms can take either type - but the automatic type is the real key to the system "self-balancing" the temperature in each room.

It just keeps putting out heat, add this operator and it will turn off when set temp is reached and turn back on when room temp goes below set temp.

It can be positioned in two orientations which are 180 degrees apart so that you can always see the numbers on the dial to know what temperature you are setting the radiator to.

Each year a radiator or two will not shut off and provides constant heat whike the boiler is running. The TRVs are only 4 or so years old, is there a way to clean them out or do I need to replace the head or part of the head? Is there any regular maintenance that needs to be done on these heads?
