Living in the northeastern area of the country, the winters are especially long and cold.
All of us get temperatures down to disadvantage twenty-multiple degrees, and the windchill makes the air know even colder, then our location sees much more than the national average for annual snow accumulation, however dealing with the weather is an expensive and endless challenge.
I am lucky that our beach home is equipped with a boiler furnace. The boiler uses water to transfer heat energy to the multiple rooms of the house. The benefit of water rather than air is that it heats up faster, retains heat longer and avoids troubles with air contamination and insufficient humidity. The boiler sends the heated water through pipes that are concealed beneath the floors, spreading warmth across the surface. The radiant floor heating eliminated freezing pockets, drafts and stratification. The heating process is especially quiet and energy efficient. It proves a appealingly gentle comfort. Another luck of a boiler is the outdoor snowmelt system. A network of pipes are attached to the boiler and hidden under the pavement of the driveway, walkways, front steps and garage. The snowmelt plan reacts to the combination of temperature drop and moisture and automatically starts up. It makes sure the outdoor area is always clear of snow and ice. All of us don’t need to worry about slipping and falling on the ice. There’s no need to shovel, plow, snow blow or spread damaging snowmelt chemicals. All of us aren’t stuck with gigantic piles of snow that block access to the garage. The snowmelt plan adds convenience and value to our property.
