“Steam heating systems come in many varieties and sizes. Steam systems need regular maintenance, or small problems will occur. When the small problems are not addressed, they will cause other small problems to arise. A large steam heating system with scores of small problems will not heat properly and fuel consumption can increase dramatically, but worst of all, the banging in these systems, as my mentor would say, is like the ‘hammers of hell.’” Jacob (Jake) Myron wrote this book as an easy-to-understand self-help guide for those in the occupation dealing with steam systems. He feels a huge gratitude to this industry, and he shares his over forty years of successful experience in this book to give something back to his beloved profession and colleagues.
