Combination of boiler and snowmelt system

My local area regularly breaks records for snow accumulation.

We expect flurries anytime from September until May, and it frequently adds up to multiple feet on the ground.

Along with an excessive amount of snow, we deal with dangerous windchill and temperatures that regularly drop down to twenty below zero. The long, snowy and freezing cold winters create a great deal of work and expense. We rely on the heating system for the majority of the year and pay expensive utility bills. I am fortunate that my house is equipped with a boiler and radiant flooring. The boiler is installed in the basement, heats up water and distributes it through a closed loop of pipes concealed beneath the floor. The heat from the water spreads across the floor, rises slowly and maintains a very even temperature. Radiant floor heating is entirely silent, requires no maintenance and won’t cause problems with overly dry air. It accommodates zone control and proves exceptional energy efficiency. One of the best perks of the boiler is that it’s also linked to a snowmelt system. Much like the radiant flooring inside the house, we have a system of pipes hidden beneath the pavement of the driveway, walkways, front steps and garage. It automatically responds to temperature drop and moisture. Hot water is pumped through the pipes to melt away snow and ice. We never need to shovel or plow snow. We have no concerns over where to pile all that snow or potential slipping and falling on icy surfaces. The boiler and snowmelt system saves us a great deal of time and work.
