How do I turn down the heat to my sinks and showers from a oil burner heater set at 180°F for baseboard heat?
I have a Crown Bahama oil boiler that was installed in 1990. I have baseboard heat, so the boiler is set at 180°F.
The problem is that the same temperature water goes to my showers and sinks. I have to warn everyone to prevent scalding.
I would think that there would be separate zones, one for baseboard heat and another for sinks and showers, but no one seems able to give me an answer. I would love to be able to have this fixed.
