If you're a homeowner with steam heat, know that I wrote this one for you. If you'd like to fix uneven heat and squirting air vents or want to reduce your fuel bills and silence clanging pipes, then arm yourself with this book and smile. This is not a do-it-yourself book. Here's what you'll learn:

  • How your steam-heating system works (and why it might not)
  • What each component does (or what it's supposed to do)
  • Why high pressure in a steam-heating system won't work
  • How the choice of fuels can affect your system
  • What causes all that noise (and how to get ride of it once and for all)
  • Simple ways to lower your fuel bill
  • What you can do yourself
  • When you should keep your hands in your pockets
  • How to find a steam-heating pro (and how to avoid the knuckleheads)
  • Things that should be in every contract you sign for steam-heating work
  • The right questions to ask when replacing a boiler
  • How to fix, move, clean, paint and/or replace an old radiator
  • How to have a hot-water zone added to your steam-heating system
  • How to know if you can have your steam-heating system converted to hot-water heat
  • And a whole lot more!

Arm yourself with this book. You will not be sorry.

Must-read for learning about steam heat November 21, 2014
Reviewer: Margo Valdes from Worcester, MA USA  
I read this book for professional development while living in NYC and working with multifamily buildings with steam heat. Since then, my husband and I have moved out of the city and purchased our own building with steam heat. We ordered the book right away to read it together. It's well written, informative, and perhaps most importantly, entertaining!
