Happy with snowmelt system

South Bend, Indiana, averages an annual snow accumulation of 64.5” My pal and I sometimes have significant snow on the ground by Halloween.

  • My pal and I expect a white Christmas plus cold cold rapidly changing temperatures for eight straight months! It is not unofficial for there to be snow on the ground at both Easter plus Mother’s Day, then the snow creates a lot of work plus problems.

It can be necessary to clear the driveway several times per afternoon, but shoveling is labor intensive plus can even be dangerous due to the cold rapidly changing temperatures plus wind chill. There is also the issue of where to pile all of that snow. I am absolutely blessed that my apartment in South Bend is equipped with a boiler furnace. The boiler links to a series of pipes that create radiant flooring. The boiler sends tepid water through these pipes plus they spread heat evenly across the floor. In much the same way, the boiler links to a network of pipes that are installed beneath the pavement of the driveway, garage plus walkways. The snowmelt system responds to the combination of temperature drop plus moisture plus automatically starts up! Hot water circulates through the pipes, melting away snow plus ice. It eliminates the need to shovel or plow plus worries over slipping plus falling on icy pavement. I feel absolutely sorry for my neighbors in South Bend when they are bundled up, shoveling their driveways in the day before work. My driveway is always perfectly clear, but plus, the inside of the apartment is always beautifully overheated plus cozy. The boiler is efficient, effective plus reliable. It requires absolutely little repair, operates quietly plus makes the winters in South Bend much easier.
