Your Place: More on running shower, dishwasher at same time
Another possible solution to a problem from a reader who couldn’t use the shower and run the dishwasher simultaneously. Kevin Knudsen of Hawthorn Woods, Ill., believes the problem may lie with the flow rate, since the reader with the problem said he had plenty of pressure.
How much to replace hydronic heat with forced air?

Does anyone know the approximate cost of replacing a hydronic (boiler) system with forced air and a furnace? It’s about a 3000 sq. ft. home. Thanks!

Hello Jen:

Contact three HVAC installers in your area for an accurate bid.

Why do you want to go from the Best Heating System to the worst? Do you need cooling too? If this is the case, ask about ductless air conditioners. If the hydronic system is condemned, it can be repaired with PEX tubing rather than copper, if this is your concern. honestly, hydronic heat is warmer, quieter, and unless they install humidifiers, it does not dry out your home or blow dust everywhere.

To install forced air, the company will need to install duct work in the attic and/or basement. Don’t let them talk you into a heat pump; go with a fuel furnace and if you want cooling, get air conditioning. To get it to work properly, you will want supply and return registers in each area and bedroom.
