      I currently have a steam based modulating Zone heating system. The Boiler is a Weil-McLain oil-fired natural draft steam unit. Throughout my home I have individual modulating units called “SelectTemp” that are made by a company called Turbonics. These units are about 50 years old, parts are available but it is no longer feasable to keep them running.

      The low pressure modulating units have a 3/8 inch supply which steam enters a small turbine then through a heater core and leaves through a 3/8 inch return line. No electric required.

      I am trying to find out if there are any decorative steam radiator units that would be able to plug into the existing steam infrastructure, without having to rip my house apart

      The 3/8-inch lines will deliver c.7000 btuh to Runtal or Burnham radiators placed in front of the old units.

      To do this you must change your system to hot water.
