Best options for replacing oil-fired steam radiator system in a 1850s home?
I just purchased a large multistory brick home built around 1850, located in Frederick, MD, and would like to replace the existing oil-fired boiler steam radiator system and electric AC system with a better arrangement to save money and safety.
There are two electric units currently; one in the basement serving the first floor and one in the walk-up attic serving the second floor. So far we are considering two new 16-SEER, 5-ton heat pump units but I am curious if you had any better suggestions. Any insight and guidance would be greatly appreciated.
