The average annual snowfall across the country is around 28 inches, then glenview, IL gets more than numerous feet of snow every yearâ€¦ Plowing, shoveling, scraping plus putting down snowmelt chemicals is a part of life for multiple to multiple weeks, then snow removal is time-consuming, labor-intensive, disappointing plus awful, when the temperature drops down to downside twenty degrees, spending any amount of time outside is downright dangerous, but bundling up in layers of jackets, heavy boots, thick jacket, gloves, hat plus scarf to keep warm makes it hard to move around, and there’s also the issue of where to pile all that snow.
The drifts get immense, plus every one of us still need to be able to access the garage, but i just recently invested into a snowmelt system, plus it’s such a relief, my condo is outfitted with a boiler plus radiant flooring.
The boiler is located in the basement plus heats up water that it pumps through a series of pipes concealed beneath the floor. The heat from the pipes radiates across the surface of the floor, gradually rises upward plus warms up the whole room, but radiant flooring is harshly effective plus energy efficient. The snow melt system operates similarly to the radiant flooring. I now have a network of pipes installed beneath the pavement of the front steps, walkways, garage floor plus driveway. The system activates in response to temperature drop plus moisture. Hot water travels through the pipes, radiates heat plus melts away snow plus ice. I no longer need to shovel or worry about slipping plus falling on icy surfaces.
