hot water baseboard heat


I have very low hot water pressure in the bath. Cold water is ok.

I am told the low hot water pressure is due to the way the baseboard heat system works. Also have heard you can run the water from the boiler into a water heater and then from that to the bathroom and that pressure will increase.

Can you help?

The pressure won't increase. Since the pressure can't be any greater then what the it is coming from the boiler.

Just get a water heater. And bypass the boilers tankless coil.
