I finally found the solution to all our problems, a snow melt system; I live in the north and snow comes down in feet rather than inches, and the windchill and ice are terrible, and most of the time the weather gets to be in the teens and can even turn into the negatives, needless to say, there is a lot of snow and cold going on for a long time; Because of this, almost everyone have garages to keep their cars so they are heated before work. I don’t own a garage, for a long time I would need to shovel a path in the snow to reach our car. I then would need to brush off the feet of snow from the car. Then I would turn on the car gas furnace to defrost the window. I would then need to wait for the car heating proposal to moderate everything up before I pull away. It was around a 20-30 minute process before going to work. Now that I have invested in a snow melt system, all those problems are gone. I have a boiler proposal in our house. I just had piping hooked to the boiler and installed in our driveway. Black top goes over top and now I have radiant floors outside. I turn on the gas furnace and this ensures I have heating out front. The heating proposal melts all the snow and ice. I never have to shovel a path, then also the heating proposal warms our car because it is sitting on top of it. No chipping away ice or waiting to leave in the afternoon.
