A mod-con with existing baseboard retrofit Q....
I didnt want to Hijack Steamfitters thread, though I have a similar situation. The home I was at today has a boiler in the basement that has been flooded twice in two years. First Irene, now Sandy. Im pulling all the wood flooring on the first floor and suggested radiant instead of the existing baseboard. They already have radiant under the tile in the kitchen. The idea is to create a small utility room on the first floor and mount a Mod Con in there, so there's no more worries of flooding a boiler in the basement.
The second floor bedrooms and large (vaulted) open area still have SlantFin baseboard which was sized for the 180 degree boiler.... I figure the lower temp water would just take longer to heat the upstairs so setbacks at night are no longer a smart idea, but what happens on a real design day? That baseboard was designed for 180 degree water....
Is there a way to control it to run the upstairs zone at a higher temp for a period of time?
