Basboard heat system tube through a wall?

I have baseboard forced water heat. I need to extend a pipe and take it THROUGH a wall. Is this ok? It's an old, former exterior wall, so I'd have to drill through drywall AND the old house frame.

Fire hazard? Will the interior of the wall get screwed up (heated a little in there, moisture, perhaps)?

Is this ok?

Chris,

Should not be a problem. Baseboard heating piping is run thru walls and floors everywhere to get to the rooms it is intended to heat.

There should not be any moisture problem, unless you have a leak. Same as the rest of your heating piping.

GO EAGLES,

Thanks, Rick. I figured it was fine, and thought it was a silly question, but had to ask to make sure.

Eagles?! They'll have a tough time with ATL or the Pack. Although the Steelers will have a tough time with pretty much any AFC opponent. Gonna be some nasty playoffs this year! Good luck!

Chris
