i have an approximately 15 to 20 year old boiler in my 75 year single family old house (with single pipe steam system).
various parts of the boiler are starting to go: the flush valve and limit already have shown problems, other things may
start to go soon too, such as automatic water cut-in. rather than fix these little problems one at a time as
they happen (and they will happen in the heating season, when its more difficult and time sensitive to get repairs)
should i just get a whole new boiler system all at once -- during the summer when i can afford to
shop around for a fair deal?
or should i just wait until the whole thing goes, and fix the little problems as they occur?
i've been told i probably have a few years left in the boiler itself. i'm reluctant to pay for constant repairs when it may
be more cost efficient (and fuel efficient) to get a new system.
if so, any recommendations on the best products to use?
