Many people tell me steam is an old technology and a very inefficient way to heat. I respectfully inform them that a well-designed steam system can be very efficient. When water turns to steam vapor, the steam zooms through a building at speeds up to 40 miles per hour without using a compressor, pump, fan, or blower. What does it cost to transport steam throughout a building? Only a few ounces of steam pressure. Did you know that the Empire State Building in New York City at a height 1,250 feet and 103 stories heats their building using 2-3 pounds of steam pressure and also has a LEED Gold Certificate? When looking at the next shiny thing for your next heating project, remember the advantages of a tried and true system, steam.
