Don't Let Noisy or Banging Pipes Keep You Awake At Night – We Repair & Maintain Steam Heating Systems
Steam heating systems can be very temperamental. We have the knowledge and experience to solve knocking and banging pipes: a common nuisance with steam systems. The knocking and banging is often caused by improperly pitched pipes or radiators; or, improperly installed system piping.
The Advantages of Installing A Steam Heating System in Your NY Home
Steam and hot-water heating systems have few moving parts, making them more reliable and durable if properly maintained…often more reliable than newer, more complicated heating systems. They also provide clean and dust-free heat
, a huge plus if you or members of your family have problems with dust and other allergies.
Boiler Systems Operation
In steam heating systems, a boiler heats water by means of a gas or oil-fired burner and turns it into steam. The steam travels through pipes to radiators or convectors, which give off heat and warm the room. As the steam cools, it condenses back into water, and returns to the boiler to be heated again.
Steam Heating System Maintenance
While one of the advantages of boiler systems is their long life, these systems should still be serviced no less than annually
to ensure trouble-free operation. At Frank & Lindy, we:
- Check the safety valve, and pressure or water level gauge;
- Check the controls;
- Inspect & adjust the burner;
- Inspect the chimney & flues for possible blockages or leaks;
- Check the air valves to regulate the heat;
- Make any and all necessary repairs;
- Recommend and install a new boiler when the old one runs out of “steam.”
