change steam radiant heat to outside wood water heat


Has anyone ever change a steam radiator system to a outside wood furnace and ran water through the registers?

Do you plan on using a circulation pump to move the water or do you want to keep it steam?

A one pipe system and a circulation pump will not function. You will need an independent return line.
