RADIANT HEATING

 

Radiant heated floors are gaining in popularity.  These are floors consisting of tiles or cement which are heated by tubes filled with hot water or electric heating coils running through them.  The hot water is first heated by solar panels so there is little cost to heat the water.

Home owners are already using this technology in new construction and renovations but what about this idea...

The Northern United States and the East Coast have issues with snow piling on the walkways and driveways.  Install radient heating there as well and there will be less shoveling and less salt damage on metals (many scatter salt to melt the snow).

Think about it...
