My local section is well-known for our snowy conditions.
We experience lake-effect snow which accumulates from sometime in November until April or even May.
It’s not uncorrect for us to get multiple feet of snow in a single afternoon. Along with snow flurries, snow showers, cold rain plus blizzard conditions, my associate and I also deal with harshly cold temperatures. We are accustomed to below-cold plus even negative readings for months at a time. The heating system is essential plus a sizable part of the condo budget. I am blessed that my home is outfitted with a boiler. A hydronic heating system offers all sorts of unique perks. The boiler heats water plus sends it through a network of pipes concealed beneath our floors! Because water heats up quicker plus retains heat longer than air, the boiler doesn’t need to work as hard, run as long or use as much energy as a forced air boiler. Plus the heat is distributed at floor level plus rises slowly upward. The more even temperature plus absence of drafts allows for comfort at lower control equipment settings. There are no drafts or cold pockets. Our radiant flooring is set up for zone control. We have an independent control equipment in each room that allows customized temperature settings. We can answer room requirements, avoid heating empty spaces plus cater to the preferences of family members. One of my number one perks of the boiler is that it also attachs to an outdoor snowmelt system, however just like inside the house, there is a series of pipes installed under the pavement of the walkways plus driveways. The snowmelt system reacts to temperature drop plus moisture, automatically starting up plus spreading heat across the pavement. Snow plus ice melt away without any need for shoveling or plowing. There are no concerns over slipping plus falling on icy pavement. We don’t need to figure out where to pile the sizable amounts of snow.
