: It's amusing to see someone applying the shopping techniques
Happy to brighten your day.
: What it comes down to is finding a replacement piece of iron to be installed properly
If I interpret correctly, you are saying that steam is obsolete in residential applications. It will be impossible to find a "modern" boiler and difficult to find an installer.
: I will probably cost as much as running new copper pipe for a new hot water boiler at 94% AFUE efficiency without him having to remove the old pipes.
So you'd suggest converting to a hot water system?
Can the old radiators still be used? In some rooms, they are pretty integral to the architecture. I realize they would be less efficient.
And I think you were suggesting just leaving the old steam piping in place?
