Residential and Light Commercial Low Pressure Steam Boilers
The residential steam boiler
is still alive and well despite the fact that some HVAC professionals refer to it and the steam boiler profession as the dead mans club. However, there are not a lot of HVAC boiler technicians or HVAC companies that specialize in steam boilers because there are not a lot of the steam boilers used for residential and light commercial applications. People have either converted their old boiler steam systems over to hot water or have gone with forced air systems. The concept is simple but the mechanics of it can be frustratingly complex when a problem occurs unless you have the experience and knowledge that comes with working on the residential or light commercial steam boilers. Before we dive into some of the problems that arise with steam boilers
, we’ll cover safety first. After all, HVAC safety is the most important aspect to any home heating system.
