Adding Heat in Basement

nycpa Member Posts: 108
Hi, I have a steam heating system that heats 9 radiators in two floors of the house. I have a finished basement with no heating. I wanted to add heating to the basement also. Is there a way for me to do this using my existing boiler? If so, how would it be done? I remember friends houses having baseboard in the basements. I attached a picture of my boiler. Thanks.


  • hot water loop from a steam boiler

    if you look in the shop here you can order a copy of "the lost art of steam heating", and there is a section describing a hot water loop with radiators from a steam boiler. it works well but you have to follow certain steps to enable it to function properly, and not upset the rest of the system.--nbc
