1927 home, where to start?
I just purchased a 1927 home with an oil boiler and radiators through out the house. It is ~3400 sq ft and 2 stories. I know that in the basement there was water damage that caused flooding and I'm sure ruined the boiler and water heater. The oil tanks are in the basement as well.
All I know about radiant systems like this is what I've read over the last couple of weeks. And that my middle school had one when I was a kid. :)
I'm hoping that someone can help guide me on "next steps". My plan is to have the system repaired. I've not great desire to change from oil to propane, but am not opposed to the idea either.
Here are a couple of pictures of the basement, you can see the water mark on the tanks and boiler. Any recommendations on where to start would be great.
