    I see that as a great opportunity for those who understand older systems.

    What a shame.. steam is one of the best and most comfortable methods for heat in my opinion... Funny how a system that was king at the turn of the 20th century is now "bad"

    Not bad at all, just in need of some knowledgeable attention.

    Two pipe systems with TRVs are efficient.

    Those savings numbers are real. The Calvert Court project we did ten years ago saved about $10,000 in fuel in the first year of operation. And that's just a 32-unit building!

    But we'll never see anything like that program in Baltimore.
