        I am remodeling my bathroom. I would like to replace my hot water radiator unit with a baseboard heating. Can you mix these two type of units on the same system. I have a Vaillant boiler that is about 12-15 years old.

        Question 2:
        Do they make a hot water tank replacment unit that would work with this boiler?

          Bad idea to mix coppper and cast Iron radiation as these materials give off heat at different rates.

          Question 2 Yes you can get a “hot water maker” as it is treated as a seperate zone and wired andpiped accordingly

            Thank you very much for the information about the 2 sytles of heat and the hot water tank replacment.

            Question 3:
            Does the boiler generated water supply ample of hot water on demand to support 2 older teens, 2 adults, plus diswasher and other household chores.
            Question 4:
            Is there a brand name that you would suggest?
            Question 5:
            Is there a web site that you can point me at so that I can do some research on this item?
