In the are where I live, the long and cold Wintertide weather is a priority. I spend a unbelievable deal of time, money and effort combatting the amount of snow, ice and cold hot and cold temperatures. Our Wintertide season often lasts from early November until sometime in May. My beach house is outfitted with a boiler, which is a hydronic furnace. The boiler uses water to move heat energy, providing a really efficient, clean and bendy solution to the demands of local weather. Inside the home, there is a series of pipes concealed beneath the floors. The boiler pumps sizzling water through these pipes which spreads the heat evenly across the floors. The radiant heating plan takes up no living space, makes no noise, and effectively handles any weather. I’ve also invested in a looping plan of pipes hidden under the floor of the garage, walkways and driveway. The set up and operation is much the same as the radiant flooring inside. The exterior pipes melt any accumulation of snow and ice, keeping our driveway, walkways and garage safe and clear. There’s no need to hire a snow plow service, run a snowblower or spend minutes shoveling. I don’t need to utilize snow melting chemicals, such as rock salt, which can cause destruction to landscaping. There’s also far less fear of someone slipping and getting hurt. The snow melt plan is set up to activate at a particular moisture level and outdoor temperature. It automatically starts up, melts away snow and ice, and shuts back down. Because of the efficiency of the boiler, the snow melt plan costs really little to run.
