Radiant Driveway...

I guess I'm fortunate as the wind usually whips most of the snow away from my front door. Further down Woodlawn Avenue a neighbor of mine took things to a higher level when he built his house. Mentioned his radiant heated driveway awhile ago.

While radiant heat is the rage in Iceland and spots across Europe, it's rarely used here. On Elmwood and Bird, We Never Close installed it and Paul Johnson - Johnson & Sons - at 60 Brantford installed it recently, too.

Anyone want to venture a guess as to why we don't see more of this application. Like to know.

Almost forgot - The City owned Woodlawn Row Houses, and the primary reason why I started blogging are located 100' feet away from this spot...

I can see its use in public spaces when liability, labor etc is an issue.

I may be cheap..but any heating I do I would like to keep in the house. =)

I was told that the entire HSBC Center plaza was heated at one time. The system lasted a little over 20 years before the maintenance and upkeep of the system made it prohibitive to operate.

I believe the front of the old Aud had heated sidewalks.
