I recently put in a whole new garage floor, driveway and sidewalks at my house. This gave the opening to install a snow melt system. I live in the northeastern section of the country, where the Winter season season lasts for more than half the year. The dire frigid and tremendous accumulation of snow are a main priority. I spend a lot of time, cash and effort trying to combat the dire conditions. My condo is equipped with a boiler gas furnace, which is entirely powerful and energy efficient. The boiler uses water to transfer heat energy through pipes beneath the floors. The radiant flooring spreads the heat evenly and avoids drafts and temperature stratification. It is a closed system, so it doesn’t introduce any air contaminants, such as dust, pollen, dander or bacteria. The device is honestly concealed beneath the floors, taking up no living space, never detracting from the decor or getting away in the arrangement of furniture. Because the heat rises gradually and warms all surfaces in the rooms, I can set low temperature control settings and still appreciate perfect comfort. I also get to appreciate the benefit of zoned heating. I don’t need to pay to heat empty rooms and can adjust independent temperature controls to personal preference. I have now linked the boiler to the snow melt system. The pipes are entirely similar to the radiant flooring in that they are installed beneath the cement. The idea starts up automatically in response to moisture and temperature. I never need to plow or shovel, and there’s far less worry of someone slipping, falling and getting hurt. The garage, driveway and walkways are always completely clear.
