In Reply to: Re: Should I convert? General advice wanted. posted by Harold hydronicnetwork.net on February 27, 2004 at 13:14:56:

Um, I am exploring my options with insulation: blowing in, replacing windows, etc. but there are certainly limitations to what I'll be able to accomplish, though, given the 2X4 exterior walls and relatively large window spaces.

Replacing the old boiler: What are the advantages and disadvantages of converting to natural gas from oil. Is it typically worth the headache to get rid of the oil tank?

Is it typically possible to retrofit a multi-zone system, or would I probably have to run new pipe throughout the house?

Do you have any experience with new radiators? Is there any real performance advantage to be gained? The smaller size is appealing, but I'd need something more to justify getting rid of the existing originals.

RE: air conditioning: Thanks for the link to the unico system. It's something we're considering, too. In St Louis AC is used from may through october, not two months. Are there things to watch out for when specifying such a system?
