The old steam men would never have dreamed of leaving their steam piping uninsulated. Why, that would have been just plain foolish! Why spend good money to make steam, only to have it condense and die in the basement piping? It didn’t make sense then, and it certainly doesn’t make sense today. It is a most definite fact that steam pipes need to be insulated to achieve their highest efficiency potential, In fact, many steam systems won’t even run effectively without it. It’s that important. Rest assured, we include an estimate for insulation work with every steam boiler we quote. We don’t just install boilers, we take a holistic approach to your entire system.
