Glad I kept the boiler

I never need to plow my driveway or scrape ice off my car windshield anymore… Everything is all hot and snow free

Boilers are ugly, at least that is what I thought when I first moved into my home. My plan was to rip out the boiler system and get something beautiful set up in my living room. I was planning on a gas fireplace or oil furnace system. Thankfully I had other projects to keep me occupied. I had a roof that needed to be patched. I had drywall that had to come down and fresh put up. I also needed new flooring and light fixtures throughout the house. All my several projects kept coming in and demanding attention. The boiler technically worked, there was no reason to replace it. A new oil furnace is overpriced, so I was afraid to take the plunge. It took me almost several years to where I was ready to suppose about Heating and A/C equipment. By the time I was ready, I realized the boiler wasn’t going somewhere. Boiler systems are so stretchy. I can use the boiler to be a baseboard heater, attach it to a radiator or be hydronic radiant floors. I can use a boiler to heat the family water or our swimming pool. I choose to hook piping to my boiler system, extend it outside to my blacktop and have a snowmelt system. I never need to plow my driveway or scrape ice off my car windshield anymore… Everything is all hot and snow free. The boiler may be ugly, but it is powerful, reliable and durable. I have never called for heating maintenance on it and I won’t need to.
