Quick explanation: we have an oil fired system which produces steam to heat the house and also heats our hot water which goes into a holding tank.
Problem: during the summer when there is demand for hot water, the furnace? boiler? fires up to heat up water. Steam is produced as well and this starts it's way up into the house. Our basement is uncomfortably hot in the summer because the steam pipes have steam in them. I have 8 radiators with Vent-Rite # 1's and have turned them all to their most closed position.
Question: Is there any way to stop the steam from being created or from traveling up and out of the furnace/boiler?
