I just started rented a gas radiator house and I'm having trouble with the radiators' heat output (kitchen not enough, bedroom too much). There's no knob to easily adjust, I took off the knob and tried tightening the bolt, but it seemed to do no good, can anyone help??

Sounds like you have a steam boiler. There should be adjustable vents on each radiator. If a hot water boiler, you may have air in the radiator. Needs to be bled out. See if you can tell which kind of boiler you have. Some old steam boilers are converted to water and never properly set up to eliminate these kind of problems without calling a professional.

lopesy may be talking about a setup of gas used to heat water, but not to boiling. It simply circulates hot water through radiators along the baseboards. I lived in a house like that. It had an ordinary thermostat in the hallway.
If some rooms get warmer than others, it would be desireable to control the amount of hot water going through those radiators.
