Like to hear from those who had/have steam heat and what you did when your oil
furnace needed replacement.
My steam furnace's preheater for our hot water is leaking so my best guess is to
replace the whole furnace since
it is about 30+ years old. Lots of rust and I was thinking of replacing it last
Our current oil fired system has two massive radiators, one in the kitchen and
one in the living room and
another smaller one in the den. They all have one pipe to each. I do have gas
heat in one bedroom. We use about
500 gal of oil per season.
I do like steam heat but is it worthwhile to shift to baseboard? My guess is it
will nearly double the cost of
just replacing the boiler.
Should I go with gas (propane)or oil for the replacement?
Any experience with specific models/manufacturers?
Help greatly appreciated
