Southwest Calgary Boiler Service & Repair
Highmark Plumbing has your Southwest Calgary boiler service & repair. Our skilled plumbers understand how boilers work, including those vintage boilers that were put in around the 1950s or earlier. Boilers are old technology by modern standards. They were first used extensively in the early 1800s as part of the industrial revolution. Those early boilers were scarcely more than a cylinder filled with water that was heated by flowing hot gases over the surface of the liquid. Fortunately, modern boilers have come a long way since those early models.
Although boilers are older technology, they are making a comeback because of their efficiency and sustainability. Boilers create hot water that can be used as part of a radiant heating system simply to supply household hot water or hot water for a large building, or even to turn a turbine to create electricity. In fact, nuclear power plants utilize boiler technology to turn the turbines that create electricity. Boilers used to be huge ungainly things that lived in a basement, but modern boilers are much more compact and can be situated in a small space in your basement or even installed in a closet on the same level as your living space. Your modern boiler comes with pressure gauges, safety valves, and thermostatically controlled heaters. This is a huge advance over the original models and meets many of today’s standards for sustainability.
