July 31, 2018 12:48 pm

While it is true that there are many ways to heat your premises, each varying solution comes with their own sets of advantages and disadvantages. They may require more energy when being used, which in turn will cost you more to run. They could come with a hefty initial investment, be difficult to source spares for or could simply not be as effective as you would have hoped. Steam boilers are one such solution, and they are often overlooked as the best way to heat buildings effectively while not running up much of a cost. But if you’re not convinced, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few excellent reasons why you should use a steam boiler over other heating methods.

No Need for External Energy Sources

One of the main advantages to using steam boilers is that they require no external energy sources to create flow. This means that you wont need to invest in expensive pumps and regulators, the nature of the steam allows it to create flow naturally so that it can reach all areas of your premises where it needs to be.

Can be Used in Tall Buildings

Steam is incredibly lightweight, and hot air rises. This means that when using a steam boiler, you can create flow to the upper areas of your premises with relative ease. This is particularly useful in tall buildings where other heating methods might struggle or be ineffective, making them ideal for larger setups that need a cost effective heating solution.

Cleaning and Maintenance is Simple

When it comes to steam boilers, maintenance is particularly simple, and can be done with very little downtime. When servicing a boiler, you won’t need to drain it or its pipes first, you simply need to stop the flow of air into the troubled area. This means that it will run effectively more of the time, and maintenance will not have to cut too deeply into your schedule.

Additions Can Easily Be Made

The design of boilers allow for additions to be made with relative ease without needing to change anything about its original design. This makes additional installations easier, cheaper and much faster to conduct, saving you a lot of money in the long run.
