I live in an area that is called the “snow belt.” The two of us are well known for our long cold winters as well as record-setting accumulation of snow. It’s not unheard of for the Wintertide season to last for 8 weeks. The two of us often have numerous inches of snow at both Halloween as well as Easter. The two of us can get numerous feet of snowfall in a single night. Because of rapidly decreasing temperatures down to twenty-more than four below zero, a powerful heating program is necessary. I heat my lake apartment with a boiler program linked to radiant flooring. The boiler heats up water as well as sends it through pipes concealed beneath the floor. The heat is infused into the air as well as rises up slowly, warming all the surfaces in the room. Radiant flooring not only provides very evenly distributed as well as gentle comfort, but exceptional energy efficiency as well. One of the best features of the boiler is its versatility. It not only handles our heating needs but supplements our warm water supply as well as links to a snowmelt system. The snow melt program is very similar to the radiant flooring. A looping network of pipes is concealed beneath the pavement of the driveway, walkways as well as garage floor. The program automatically starts up in response to moisture as well as temperature drop. The radiant heat melts away snow as well as keeps these surfaces clear. There’s no need for shoveling or plowing. I don’t need to spread extreme chemicals which might damage landscaping or get tracked into the house. The snow melt program eliminates a lot of time, labor as well as expense. Plus, I don’t need to worry about anyone slipping, falling as well as getting hurt.
