please help steam heat / coil


When i bought my house the main part of the house is steam heat, but the extention that was added is baseboard heat where they used the coil to heat, had no problems till we built a small doorma above that room so the problem now is = they taped into the existing curc pump and what happens is if the that zone runs on its own it works fine, but when the steam side runs too the pressure builds up to about 40lb then the Relief valve leaks water please help

You may have too much air in the line. You need to get a HVAC company out to help you. To able explain what to do on here will be very hard and don't want you to do any damage to the system.
