Conversion from steam to hot water
I purchased an 1873 Victorian for restoration and living and have a steam boiler. I'm considering the conversion from steam to hot water, but I'm concerned that I'll need to destroy portions of the architecture to achieve that. The first 2 stories of the house are heated, the 3rd isn't (yet). All rooms have steam radiators, single pipe feed and the house seems to be pretty warm in the cold weather. I'm not sure how much oil is consumed and I'm afraid to find out. I'm hearing more about converting and using PEX piping as the solution to modernize the system once a hot water system is installed. I'm open minded about installing a new steam boiler but haven't found a qualified installer in Greene County, NY. Thoughts regarding conversion vs. replacement?
