I wanted to get another's opinion about a new steam heating system being installed in a home. I have always been fascinated with steam, and would consider myself as having a moderated understanding of proper trapping and condensate return.
My question, is a steam system an economical option vs hot water or forced air in a new house? Square footage would be in the 3,200-3,600 range in Michigan. I'm sure something similar has come up before, but I couldn't find it. I would be using steam for domestic hot water heating and comfort heating.
I'm not asking if it's the cheapest option, just if it is reasonable economical vs hotwater and forced air.
I understand that I would still need to run duct work for the A/C.
