boiler & radiant heat options

I could use some advice, as plumbing is not my strong point! Last week, we found out that our 20-yr. old fuel oil boiler sprung a leak and therefore needs to be replaced. Living in the country, the...

Yep - I'm sure :) Baseboards weren't installed when the rough-in took place, and the photos I took were from the drywall to the mounting bolts. I plan to give AM Standard a call today just to see...
