Complete Mechanical has your boiler service in Lynnwood. Boilers are interesting devices that have been in use since the 1800s. Fortunately, since those early models were not very safe to have around, the design has been much improved over the last century or so. Boilers now incorporate safety valves, thermostats, pressure gauges and other devices that improve both their safety and efficiency – especially when compared to historic models.
Boilers fulfill a variety of functions. They can heat water, create steam, be part of a radiant heating system, and run turbines that create electricity. Correctly set up, they can perform multiple functions, such as heating water and powering a turbine at the same time, or be part of a radiant heating system. Boilers are often used to provide hot water and heat to large buildings. They make use of the propensity of steam to move from a high-pressure area to a low-pressure area, without used of pumps or fans. Steam or hot water heat is often perceived as feeling warmer than forced air heat that is set at a similar temperature because the water and pipes tend to hold the heat and release it slowly. When combined with a heat pump, this can make boilers highly efficient heating systems. A heat pump offsets the cost of heating the water, especially for large boiler systems.
