I own a boiler system and it is just amazing.
- Most people in my area complain about the cold and keep their homes warm enough.
With a boiler system I don’t have that problem. My entire house is evenly heated due to it. What is especially nice is that my heat is under my feet. I hooked up the piping up to the boiler and now hot water runs through the piping that is under my floorboards. Hydronic heating is the way to go. It doesn’t create any noise or hot and cold spots. Since it is warm water and not air, not heat is rising to the ceiling and getting wasted. I am able to lower my thermostat and save a little money with this method of heating. Anything that is set on the floors feels warm too. The couch, recliners and the tables all feel heated as a result. It is wonderful for kids crawling around on the floors and pets as well. I then figured out I could hook ever more piping to my boiler and have a snowmelt system outside. Now I don’t need to shovel my driveway or scrape ice off my car anymore. The snow melt system is just piping under my black top. I turn it on when it snows and I wake up in the morning to a cleared driveway. Since my car is sitting on top of the heated surface, there is no ice on the windshield. I don’t have to get up 20 minutes earlier for work anymore due to this add on.
