This year, the All Ways Steam Team was excited to attend Chicago’s AHR Expo—one of the oldest and largest heating and ventilation shows in the world. AHR Expo offers a unique opportunity for the entire industry to get together. It plays host to vendors and exhibitors from every state in the nation, plus representatives from 165 countries around the world.
In the first chapter of our new Boiler History series, we looked at the invention of the steam boiler and its rise from a simple kettle on a fire to a turn-of-the-century mechanical marvel. We left off with pioneers like George Babcock and Steven Wilcox, and firms like the Stirling Boiler Company and the Grieve Grate Company, competing to produce the best boilers, while Americans were coming to depend on the safe, reliable heat they provided.
If colder temperatures and shorter days have your boiler working overtime, then it’s the perfect time to make sure you’re taking all the necessary steps to maximize your energy efficiency. In addition to shaving money off operating costs, these tips will also help extend the life and effectiveness of your boiler. That means your overall cost of ownership will be reduced and your bottom line will benefit.
‘Tis the season for giving! As the holidays draw closer and we prepare to spend time with the people who matter most to us, it’s important that we remember those families struggling to make their days merry and bright. Families with children who are hospitalized with injuries or illnesses might be having a hard time finding something to jingle about this Christmas season, but now there’s an easy way for you to help.
As many of you know, WARE enjoys giving back to the community and supporting charities that are dedicated to helping others. That's one of the reasons we began selling fun t-shirts for those who work in our industry. It's allowed us to create a line of hip, clever t-shirts devoted to the boiler industry worker while giving back to a local charity.
