In Lowell, Massachusetts it snows quite a bit, however the winter time season arrives early & doesn’t let up, but i am used to shoveling feet of snow & dealing with ice, during the winter time getting to work is a mess.
I shovel a path, push snow off my car, & then deice it.
It takes me around twenty extra minutes in the day. I just don’t like it! Recently I started looking for solutions. I found an automatic car start & a snowmelt system were ideal. I already owned a boiler system for house heating in Lowell, then now all I have to do is add piping to the obiler & have it stretched to my driveway. The piping goes under the blacktop or cement. Then the boiler heats water that flows through the pipes to create a heating effect. It then heats the driveway to the point that the snow melts once it hits it. Then you never have to shovel, then another benefit to having a snowmelt system ist that since my car is sitting on a heated surface, no ice adheres to the windshield. I don’t have to preheat my car for melting purposes or to be better to the engine. Also I get a freshly melted path to my car every day, and having a snowmelt system has saved me time, energy, & effort. I easily savor being able to make something in Lowell a lot easier than before, then changing to a snowmelt system was actually easy too. I suggest it to anyone who lives in cold states like Massachusetts.
