Help with Hydronic heat.


I have an addition that we have been heating with a propane wall heater but would like to just run a baseboard or two into the addition. So my question is can i just tee off of an exisiting zone (not on the furnace itself but on the piping near where I want them) or do I have to add another feed and return pipe

Additions are best served by their own zone.

Never mind there is an unused cast iron radiator on the basement I'm just going to cap the return line. Shark bite elbow the feed line, tee the return line closer to the adition and then use pex to go to the addition to hook up the radiator. I was told that you could use pex for this type of application which is good because my local home improvement store has the oxygen barrier stuff for 48 cents a foot.
