Steam Boilers

Steam Heating Systems

Steam is actually a very efficient heating source.  Over the years steam usage has lessened a lot from where it was.  Now in more recent years we are starting to see more and more of it again.  There are also still quite a few older homes and housing complexes in Boise, Nampa and Caldwell that use steam boilers for heat.  Whether they are using radiators, Steam coils in an air handler or Finned tubes it all works on the same principal.  You have water that gets heated until it turns to steam in a boiler, the steam then travels under pressure outwards through the piping, heats the coil or the radiator etc., then condenses back into water where it travels back to the boiler or a steam condensate pump that pumps it back into the boiler. 

Chemically Treating Your Steam System

The biggest thing that most people don't think about is chemically treating the steam boiler system. It is key as when water turns to steam it leaves the minerals and particulates behind. This can cause problems and shorten the life of the heating system.  If you have questions regarding Steam Heating or Steam Boilers just give us a call.  If you need your existing boiler repaired, new radiators or piping you can call  anytime, day or night and we will get someone out to your home and get you back up and running.  Call 208-362-6200 today or CLICK HERE and we will call or e mail you back and get someone out to your home or office.

  •  I called Shane at 2:19 to confirm that someone would be at the house at 2:30 to let him in. To my surprise, he was already done with the job and had put the stickers in the house. Not only was he not late, he was early and and finished before he was even supposed to be there. I've never had that kind of experience with any serviceman from any company. He was a total professional to work with, very polite and easy to communicate with. I can't thank you enough for helping me out with this. I already recommend Drake to any of my family or friends, but after this experience, my referral will be more of a mandate :). Your employees are just as pleasant to work with as you and Amanda. Thanks again, I sincerely appreciate you.    James G.

  •  Just wanted to say that your service tech Mike Hayes here in Boise just installed a new outdoor AC unit for us, and he couldn't have been nicer. He got us the best deal possible and he and his assistant did excellent work, and got it done pretty quickly. I'm super happy with the service I got. I've dealt with Drake for plumbing and AC now and both sides have been honest, friendly and efficient. Thanks Mike! I'll always be happy to recommend Drake Mechanical to anyone who needs service.
