Similarly one may ask, how do I reduce the heat in my radiator?
- Ensure that the radiator boiler is on and operating.
- Find the wheel valve. This is located at the side of the radiator where the hot water enters.
- Open the wheel valve by turning it counterclockwise to provide more heat. To lessen the heat, shut down the valve by turning it clockwise.
Secondly, how do you turn off a radiator in an apartment? To turn a radiator off, locate the thermostatic valve on the left side and turn the valve clockwise until the dial reads 0. Next, find the second valve on the right side of the radiator and twist it clockwise until it won't turn anymore. Once both valves are closed, the radiator will be completely turned off.
