Snowmelt system is worth it when living in SD

So the weather in Sioux Falls gets cold, but everyone knows this.

In the winter time the nighttime hot and cold temperatures get to be around 6 degrees, then yes, a single digit! Can you guess that? You have to absolutely cherish snow, ice, and cold to be living in SD… My family is a big time hockey family; So the cold doesn’t bother us too bad.

My buddy and I have a pond that freezes that my wife smoothes out so the boys can play. My buddy and I drive to the different ice rinks and cheer for our closest professional team. Since the winter time season is long and doesn’t let up, the priority has always been heating in our house. I do own an cooling system, however it is just a series of window AC units that I bring down from the attic. For the most part, my good friend and I all just rely on heating equipment. I went big this most recent year and upgraded our gas boiler to a boiler system… Boilers are ungodly extravagant however are beasts of heating equipment. A boiler can heat a commercial facility if it needs to, then the reason I wanted a boiler is because they are durable, long-lasting, and can be converted to a snowmelt system. Since my good friend and I get so much snow, having the ability to melt it was worth the added cost. I had piping hooked to the boiler and put underneath our driveway, and during the winter time the boiler heats our house and driveway. My buddy and I never have to shovel now. The cars don’t get ice on the windshield due to standing on a boiler too.
