adding baseboard water to a steam system
I have a problem and question. I recently lost 2 radiators on the second floor (steam riser was hidden in a old window weight sash box and had to be cut and capped, long story I wont bore you with the details). I have plaster/lathe walls, had a plumber over he said the least destructive way to get something back in the walls to get heat back to the 2nd floor from the basement would be to add a hot water heater to my boiler ( peerless series ec/ect model # EC/ECT-03-W/S). Think he said he could pressurize the hot water heater with the boiler and make the whole second floor a separate zone leaving the 1st floor as steam heat and 2nd floor as water baseboard heat. Is this a good idea or should I have the walls broken out and new risers added to the main to reconnect the 2 radiators I lost. Although those radiators cant be in the same spot anymore and wont be under windows, Thanks for any feedback in advance
