Notes :
  • These comparative costs are based on ASHRAE melting energy and hours and do not
    necessarily represent the costs in any given installation. Capital cost is based
    on a typical hydronic industry estimate, excluding a boiler; and list prices for
    an MI electric heating system components, with a $2 / sq.ft. allowance for electric
    distribution.

ASHRAE Annual Snowfall Hours: h.
ASHRAE Annual Idling Hours: h.

Using the ASHRAE statistics, the information entered on the previous page, and a conservative (30%) idling energy estimate for hydronic systems, here are the results:
