Steam traps are a critical component of your heating and cooling system that discharge condensate without releasing steam from your system. These mechanisms are essential during the harsh winter when every ounce of hot air is cherished.
However, ongoing maintenance is often overlooked. Without proper care, these mechanisms become inefficient and cause energy costs to skyrocket. In the worst cases, trap failure can cause water to infiltrate the impeller, making the entire system fail.
