Boilers are boilers, be it on a locomotive or in a building. They require cleaning
and upkeep. Even if that hospital could handle cold weather with two boilers,
they would have three. One offline getting serviced or ready to go when another
was due for service. Factory, City Hall, school or laundry, they can't take a day off
every so often to wash out mud and brush the flues. Worse, what happens when the
brickwork collapses and you are down for days?
Those sort of important places had to have backup. Your state capitol building almost
certainly has multiple air conditioning compressors.
The railroads in steam days would have protection engines ready at change points.
Same idea, have coverage just in case.
