Highmark Plumbing would like to draw your attention to Boilers in Burnaby. That might sound like a title for a science fiction movie, but it is actually a marvel much greater than that.
Using containers of water to produce domestic hot water or even heat for homes and factories came about toward the end of the 1800s, as part of the industrial revolution. The boilers produced steam or hot water that flowed through pipes and radiators in factories where a direct flame could set off an explosion or fire. This was particularly true of flour mills and fabric factories where there was a lot of combustible dust in the air. Even though they were marginally safer, those old boilers had some problems. Fortunately, engineers have greatly improved the designs.
Today, the term “boiler” can apply to a hot water heater; or it can be part of a heating system. Modern boilers even come with the Energy Star stamp. They can provide both domestic hot water and heat for buildings. With that said, even these safe, efficient water heating devices need periodic maintenance – just to make sure that they are running properly. If you use a hot water heating system in your home or business, spring is a wonderful time to get it serviced. A little forethought is a wonderful thing – it can keep your boiler system running perfectly throughout all seasons.
