radiators & gas boilers

In reply to Radiator for heat by Katherine on November 21st, 2000 07:38 PM [Go to top of thread]

our ancient oil boiler has finally died.We want to
change to a gas one and keep our radiators.
How do we know if we have steam or hot water ?
Last time we looked into this, the salepeople were
so confusing. They all had different products, with
different features whose importance we found difficult
to evaluate. The house is only 1200 sq ft, we get
lots of solar gain, and rarely, here in southern
Va., need to turn the heat on till Nov. Bryant has
a gas boiler on their website with 90% efficiency,
aluminum heating unit instead of steel or iron.
So what's wrong with this idea ? Will it be too
expensive ? Is there anyway to find out what I
should be paying for these things?
And how about our equally old radiators ? They seem to
function fine, but have had no maintenance in 20
yrs. Many layers of paint. I'm afraid someone's going
to tell us we need new ones or renovations. As you
can tell, money is an issue, but of course we'll pay
what we need to to get a new system. We just don't
want to get gouged. the current boiler is inconvenience our
basement - will we be charged extra for that in
