Converting to tankless

I have an old oil fired boiler and want to change to a tankless system. The boiler does both heat and hot water would I need two systems or one. Also I am in the process of designing a kitchen and bath remodel and would like to do in floor radiant heating. Can any one give me some suggestions

    A good answer...

    ... to your questions would fill at least two books.I suspect that's why nobody has answered you so far.  There are questions of fuel type; efficiency improvements to the home (so the heat maker/s get sized right); type of system/s; condensing or non; sizing; and so on. 

    Why are you thinking tankless is the way to go? Condensing tank type might work if you have gas, or a good boiler with indirect, or...  I imagine smaller questions will be easier for us Wallies to deal with.

    Yours,  Larry
