Signal Hill Boiler Service & Repair
Boilers are old technology. They were first used as power sources for machines in the early 1800s – part of the industrial revolution. The earliest ones were hardly more than a welded cylinder with a fire beneath it. It is fortunate that modern plumbers are far more knowledgeable than those inventors of more than 150 years ago, and that companies such as High Mark Plumbing take boiler service & repair in Signal Hill very seriously.
In those early days, when boilers were first invented, they did not have safety valves to release excess steam or meters to measure the pressure. All of that would come along later. Historically, there were quite a few explosions – sadly, accompanied by loss of life. By the early 1900s, however, new types of boilers were being invented that were more efficient and had built-in safe-guards. Boilers could be used to make steam to power machinery directly or they could be used to drive turbines to make electricity. As the need for electricity in homes becomes greater, there are now modern boilers that can both heat your home and generate electricity for domestic use. With the prospect of such energy savings, boilers are making a comeback. Imagine using a heat pump to power warm the water in a boiler, and having the boiler create heat and electricity at the same time – that is almost like a perpetual motion machine! Of course, reality in the form of friction, entropy, and a few other items will keep it from being truly perpetual, but it is an interesting thought.
