I have a 9500 sq/ft home with one pipe steam. I am going to keep the steam and upgrade that boiler hopefully next year. The house has a separate apartment that I am going to eliminate the steam radiators on and install hydro air or baseboard for a separate zone. I would also like to replace my 10yr old h/w heater (100 gallons) so I thought an indirect would be the way to go. I also want to be able to add radiant floor heat for two bathrooms in the future. It doesn't make sense to me to run the large boiler for just making the hot water, especially in the summer. My thought was to go with a separate h/w boiler to supply the 100 gallon tank, baseboard or hydro in the apartment, and the two bathrooms in the future. Does this configuration make sense. I have been told that indirect h/w heaters are much more efficient than the direct fired one I have now, which has a 2gph nozzle on it. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
