I have a 1920 2 story colonial in central CT. It has the original cast iron steam boiler (was originally coal fired, it's now oil fired). It also has the original one-pipe, cast iron radiators. I'm thinking about installing a new Dunkirk oil fired steam boiler. However, with oil nearing a pre-buy of about 4.70/gal., it doesn't make much sense. How complex (ie; expensive) is it to remove everything and install a gas fired hot water baseboard system? I would assume the new lines (pex?) could be routed where the steam lines were. Could the existing one-pipe radiators be converted to two-pipe for HW?
Lastly, any opinions on skipping all of this, leaving my existing boiler and installing a pellet stove insert in my FP? Sorry for being long winded.
