The biggest problem with a steam system for heating is that a lot of people do not understand them. The biggest reason why you want to convert your heat source as steam from steam to hot water because for many homes this is a very efficient way to provide heating. There are no health concerns from heat that is generated from a closed system. A modern HVAC system is a reliable system, but it is transferring heat by moving air around inside of your home. This means that all of the dust particles, pet dander, germs, and mold spores are actively flying through the air that you breath. It should be easy to draw the line to the health problems that an HVAC system can create.
Steam to Hot Water Conversions
The efficiencies of hot water heating system is far more efficient then a steam heating system. With the capability to reset temperatures with the outdoor temp and to use multiple smaller boilers and bring on only the boilers that is needed for a greater efficient system versus one large boiler.

Simple is beautiful
Like we mentioned earlier, not a lot of people really don't understand how these systems work. That means that not a lot of pipe fitters can really fix them. Most of the systems we see have been patched together with ill-fitting pipes and replacement parts that provide too much pressure in the pipes. A lot of these repairs are easy to make. The result is a system that will last for another hundred years. The trick though is again in the knowledge of how to properly diagnose problems and then perform the heating work needed to make the system like new again.
