Old NYC, oil fired, steam boiler to hydronic radiant floor system
Is it possible and/ or cost effective to convert an oil fired, steam boiler system to a hydronic radiant floor system in an older NYC condo building? If so, can it be done without alterations to the boiler/building infrastructure, but rather via renovations, manifold etc all done in the apartment unit?
I have received contradicting answers re: this from 2 contractors (1 Independent vs 1associated with Home Depot)..
Obviously, I'd like to hear "Sure, we can do it all in your unit without touching the building's boiler, no problem" from the independent specialist, but the other guys were saying you can't do steam boiler/ radiator to hydronic radiant floor heat..and it would require adjustments to the building's systems (i.e. outside of the apartment).
I'm sure somebody has come across this before.. Any ideas?
