Boilers originated in the early to mid-1800s as a means to power large factories — the textile factories in particular. The original boilers were simply a. welded cylinder that was filled with water and heated. Since steam power was not well understood in the beginning, these boilers had minimal safety devices, and accidents were common. Fortunately, modern boilers are much more sophisticated and include safety valves pressure gauges and other devices that make their operation much more in efficient and a great deal safer.
Modern boilers can still be used to run factory equipment, generate electricity, and produce radiant heat, as well as simply creating hot water. Radiant heat to from a boiler. It is generally considered to be more comfortable and sustainable, when compared to forced air heat. This is simply because the boilers put out hot water or steam that retains the heat even after the heating element has been shut off. This means that the liquid or steam or even the hot pipes continue to radiate heat, whereas warmed air will simply quickly dissipate. The disadvantage to this radiant heat system is maintenance of the pipes and radiators. Vintage systems that have developed leaks that can cause deterioration and warping of woodwork. However, a well-maintained boiler system ensures a continuance of stable heat. In some cases, it is advisible to replace the original boiler with one of the more compact, modern models. These are much more in efficient than models that were installed to as recently as the mid-1960s.
