Benefits of Steam Heating Systems in Boston
While steam heating systems are not installed in new homes in the Boston area very often, they can offer a number of benefits to your home, some of which include:
- They have very few moving parts, which makes them more reliable and durable that new heating systems as long as they're properly maintained.
- They provide clean, dust-free heat, which is a huge plus to homeowners who are sensitive to allergens that can be circulated by forced air heating systems.
- They're very energy efficient, and they can save you money every month on your heating costs.
How Steam Heating Systems Work
In steam heating systems, boilers heat water with gas, oil, or electricity until it turns into steam. That steam then travels through pipes to radiators or convectors which then heat the room. As the steam cools, it condenses back into water, and returns to the boiler to be heated again. Hot water heating systems operate on the same principle, using hot water instead of steam to heat the radiators in your Boston home.
Steam Heating System Maintenance
Steam heating systems have a long lifespan compared to other forms of heating systems, but they still need to be serviced annually in order to ensure problem-free and efficient operation. Our professional Boston heating experts recommend that you have your steam heating system tuned up at least once each year, preferably in the early fall before you begin heating your home regularly. Our tune-ups will help you find any smaller problems with the heating system before they develop into much more complicated issues, and they'll keep your heating system running as efficiently as possible, which will save you money on your heating costs.
