I live in an section that is called the “snow belt.” We are well known for our long frigid winters & record-setting accumulation of snow. It’s not unheard of for the Wintertide season to last for multiple months. We often have numerous inches of snow at both Halloween & Easter. We can get numerous feet of snowfall in a single night. Because of temperatures down to twenty-several below zero, a powerful oil furnace is necessary. I heat our lake home with a boiler system linked to radiant flooring. The boiler heats up water & sends it through pipes concealed beneath the floor. The heat is infused into the air & rises up slowly, warming all the surfaces in the room. Radiant flooring not only provides legitimately evenly distributed & 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 tepid water supply & links to a snowmelt system. The snow melt system is legitimately similar to the radiant flooring. A looping network of pipes is concealed beneath the pavement of the driveway, walkways & garage floor. The system automatically starts up in response to moisture & temperature drop. The radiant heat melts away snow & keeps these surfaces clear. There’s no need for shoveling or plowing. I don’t need to spread extreme chemicals which might destruction landscaping or get tracked into the house. The snow melt system eliminates a lot of time, labor & expense. Plus, I don’t need to worry about anyone slipping, falling & getting hurt.
