    Baseboard on steam

    generally doesn't work well unless it's connected two-pipe. If you have a one-pipe system you will need to run return lines to the baseboards. This can be costly.

    If you're having trouble with the system and think switching to baseboard will help, think again. Switching may actually make things worse if not done right.

    Tell us more about the project. Why did you want to use baseboard? What kind of steam system is it?
