Steam

Steam heat is an older style heating system, typically installed in homes and buildings constructed before the 1950s. Water is heated in a boiler until it becomes steam. Steam, which is a gas, rises through the pipes into radiators. The steam causes these radiators to become hot, which warms the building.

Advantages

Although steam heat is rarely installed in new homes or small buildings, it may be the heating system of choice in a high-rise building. This is because of the difficulty in pumping hot water to the upper levels of a high-rise building.

Disadvantages

Steam heat is often noisy, and buildings with steam heat often warm unevenly. Steam systems are typically not readily converted to hot water heating systems.
