However, if you have only recently acquired a building or home that includes a boiler, or if you are thinking about installing a boiler, you might want to learn a little bit more.

The short definition of a boiler is that it is part of a hydronic heating or power-producing system. Water, which is held in a tank is heated and either circulated through pipes and radiators or produces steam that is circulated through pipes and radiators. Hydronic systems can be part of a radiant heat system, or they can be used to produce electricity or to move mechanical parts. The first boilers were made in the 1800s. Since many of them were simply big tanks without gauges, safety valves and other features we take for granted today, they were prone toward explosions. Accidents can still happen around boilers, which is one reason why it is so important to have regular service visits and to make sure your boiler is maintained in good repair. A service visit includes checking thermostats and safety valves, flushing out the boiler tank, and cleaning accumulated calcification and other plaque from inside pipes.

Thanks to their heat exchange components, boilers are making a comeback. Modern boilers are compact and well supplied with safety features. But like all mechanical things, they just do better with regular check-ups – especially if your boiler is becoming just a little bit elderly.
