Can antifreez be added to a heating system
I have a home on Cape Cod Mass. The winters can be very bad. We loose the electricity all the time during storms.
I want to know if it is possible to add antifreeze to a forced hot water base board system to prevent water damage. I have in the past lost the power for several days in below freezing conditions.
I would like to take a winter vacation with out worring.
If so what kind, how much, and how would I get it into my system? Thanks for the help.

Yes you can, but it has to be non toxic. It's not cheep but it will do the job for you. We used quite a lot of it in unoccupied homes. It has to be pumped in and then tested to be sure your protected to the temperatures you require.
