    Hi All, I'm new to this forum and have a question I was hoping you could answer. Six years ago my wife and I moved into this 1600sf condo in Maine. The heating system was an oil-fired boiler that fed into 4 zones-- one zone for each of the two bedrooms, one zone for the entire common area...

    Baseboards and Panel Radiators

    Hi, I'm curious if there are any experiences/insight beyond standard troubleshooting for this issue.
