Steam or water system for old Hotel
Just met client at new building he bought. 100+ year old building. appx 24 rooms upstairs where old cast iron steam only rads had previously heated it. He still has radiators but all piping has been removed and old boiler gone. Start from scratch. He is not upgrading buiding as far as windows, insulating walls etc. He would probably insulate attic as all this work is on 2nd floor. Main piping can be ran in 16ft high retail spaces below and the branches up to each small artist work rooms(ie old hotel rooms. 200sft appx each. Interesting concept that we have radiators already and he would entertain new 1 or 2 pipe steam system. Or spend the extra $$ and buy new wall panel radiators. Steamhead, any others, input would be great as to consensus. Cost is of course concern but not totally decision maker. Aesthetics are part of it also. Thanks, Tim
