Moving Hot Water Heating Pipes

Most generally, yes it can be done. However, the design of the system and materials used (you want to change to copper usually means its now black iron piping) will limit what you can do. You definitely need a pro to evaluate what the system is and how it is piped before making a decision as to what can be done. If its an old gravity system, you may be limited. Either way, its a lot of work and best done by an experienced hand.

    Moving Hot Water Heating Pipes

    I have just purchased an older home with hot water heating. The system works great however I would like to renovate the basement and have a network of pipes hanging down that restricts the amount of available headroom. Can these pipes be moved up onto the floor joists? Can I switch to copper or some other type of pipe such as pex....can this be done?
