You've changed your closets or brought your warmer close to the front, taken out the boots, scarves, and heavy coats, and all of the sudden you realize that you had a problem or question with your hot water or steam heating system at the end of the winter and figured you'd resolve it next winter. Looks like next winter is almost here...
If you're fortunate enough to have a steam heating system, yet unfortunate to have not yet met the contractor that knows how to maintain, service and install it, well...you've come to the right place.
Trends change, technologies improve, or attempt to, but It seems that everything old is new again. In our continuing effort to bring you valuable information about your heating equipment we've stumbled across an article written by New York Time's reporter Edward R. Lipinski on February 18, 1996, which merits reading.
While nothing has changed in the maintenance of steam systems, we felt compelled to share this article with you. While it's true that many consumers like new modern technologies, you can't ignore the fact that there's nothing like a steam system that works well.
