In simple words, vacuum breakers keep the integrity of the steam piping system in general due to a physical phenomenon we will explain to you later.

This in many cases solves several issues, brings many advantages and increases the reliability and endurance of the pipelines in the steam system. Keep reading to know more. 

Why would you need a vacuum breaker installation in McAllen? 

In many commercial and residential businesses there are steam-based heating systems to be warm in the coldest months of the year. 

To do this, a system of this type uses water that is heated in a boiler and the resulting steam is stored and directed through specialized steam piping. 

In order to function, a steam heating system requires different parts: the actual pipe lines, a radiator and valves and of course, the vacuum breaker. 

You see, in closed systems like steam piping vacuum is bad, and if it gets generated thanks to steam condensation and for other reasons, the entire system would be at risk. 

This is when the vacuum breaker comes in. In detail, the vacuum breaker is basically a check valve that allows air to get in through the pipes, avoiding the feared vacuum thanks to inlets. 

As a result, the pipes will work properly and condensation, temperature variation and other instances that create vacuum will be avoided. 

Clearly, any steam-based heating system in a house or business needs a vacuum breaker. At J. Villarreal Plumbing, you can count on a specialized installation service of these devices, by skilled and professional contractors in the field.

What would happen if a vacuum breaker installation is BROKEN?

In case the vacuum breaker in your steam heating system at home is compromised, the entire ductwork, boiler and other devices would be at stake, even your security. 

Specifically, when a vacuum is generated in the piping, steam changes temperature or condensation starts, there is a possibility for water and steam hammers to occur. This would break the pipeline. 

In other words, this device maintains the integrity of the entire ductwork by avoiding vacuum to get into the closed system. 

There are plenty of benefits the vacuum breaker has, too: it prevents water and steam hammers, it regulates uneven or fluctuating temperature and it allows complete condensate drainage.
