High Mark Plumbing is on the spot with your boiler repair in Downtown Vancouver BC. You might ask exactly what a boiler is and what it does. The short, easy answer is that it is a device for heating water that can be used for multiple purposes, including heating. Boilers provide radiant heat, which generally feels warmer and remains more constant than forced air heat. With that said, boilers do require maintenance and repair.
Consider, for example, the plight of the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, located in Peekskill, New York, USA. The mission had been established in the 1860s. In the 1970s, it had more than 400 members. Today, the center has dwindled to twenty-four members, many of whom are more than 65 years old.
Time takes its toll of all things. By spring of 2016, only four of the mission’s eight boilers were working, and the sisters were told in November of 2016 that if the wood warped any more from the leaking steam that they would be lucky if the altar didn’t wind up in the basement! Thanks to a grant for religious houses, they could launch a mailing campaign to reach former students and other associates. By December 8, 2016, workers had been able to get one boiler going by using parts from the other boilers. A new boiler was donated, and funds from a Gofundme campaign was also made available so the sisters had heat for the winter.
