One of the main advantages to using steam boilers is that they require no external energy sources to create flow. The benefit of this is that you won’t need to invest in expensive pumps and regulators, the nature of the steam allows it to create flow naturally so that it can reach all areas of your home or business. Another benefit of the steam boiler is that it can heat areas that the average gas or electric heater can't reach. For example, it can heat through walls and floors, which is a great way to create a warm and inviting space within your home or business.
Steam boilers are best used in areas such as open plan living spaces, stairwells, attic rooms and private outdoor courtyards. These types of spaces are perfect for the steam boiler because they allow even flow of the steam throughout the entire area.
