    It depends. What will your new steam system be? If you go with the new Burnham Megasteam they have a specific way to pipe a HW zone off their boiler. Just simply follow their instructions and you will be fine. :)

    Are you having the install done and if so are they familiar with steam?

    You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.

    Staying with oil ?

    Best way in my opinion is to pressurize the zone with a coil .



    Another option is a heat exchanger .



    If the zone is lower than the boiler , I'd connect it directly to it . Gotta use a relay and aquastat to make sure the boiler don't steam if the water zone calls alone .
