In Glenview, IL, the cold, wind plus snow are a problem for more than half the year, then both of us see temperatures well below zero plus the wind chill makes it downright dangerous to spend much time outdoors, it snows nearly every afternoon for weeks, with several inches to several feet of accumulation.
It’s necessary to clear the walkways plus driveways at least once per afternoon, then occasionally we’re forced to handle snow removal in the afternoon before work plus again when both of us arrive home, then shoveling snow is a horrible job.
It’s labor-intensive, time-consuming plus the weather conditions are brutal, and the piles of snow become so big that they create additional problems, often blocking the garage or mailbox. I am truly fortunate that my own in Glenview is equipped with a boiler furnace. The boiler heats up water plus sends it through a series of pipes that are concealed beneath the floor. The heat spreads evenly from corner to corner, rises truly slowly plus provides a gentle plus consistent comfort. The boiler is able to handle the most drastic weather plus keep the house sizzling plus cozy, and plus, our boiler is affixed to a snowmelt system. Just love inside the home, both of us have a network of pipes installed beneath the brick of the front steps, walkways, driveway plus garage floor. The system automatically responds to temperature drop plus moisture, however as tepid water flows through the pipes, the heat melts away snow plus ice. It eliminates the need to shovel or plow. It avoids concerns over harmful snowmelt chemicals plus potentially slipping plus falling due to icy surfaces.
