Steam... What a night !

Just came in from a cold, rainy..snow (little) and super dampness that goes right through you.. To be greeted by the warmth that takes the chill out of you like nobody's business , Steam Radiators quietly releasing the best feeling warmth I could think of...
I just may go back outside for a short time just to experience it one more time as the season winds down. .. ..
And for a moment I wonder... Are Steamers just about the happiest people you know?

    Yep. Grew up with steam heat. Putting those snow-caked mittens and suits on the radiators to dry quickly and run back out into the snow-fort. Memories .....
    Still service them ..... nostalgic.

    It has reached the shoulder season here in northern Maine, stopped heating the slab with wood boiler.  I've moved to using the wood stove. I love reading a book in the chair in front of the fire. Something about that wonderful long wave radiation that heats you through!
    Serving Northern Maine HVAC & Controls. I burn wood, it smells good!

    I've been thinking about all the fun I've had working on steam boilers since I was moved to plumbing from the HVAC side of my company, several months ago. I'm really getting back to my dream of moving up north to work on these old steamers.
    I just earned my GED and am looking for a apprenticeship with one of these steam gurus on this site!
