Are You Tired of Shoveling Snow?
Shoveling snow off a driveway is a task that no homeowner enjoys, whether you are outside with a shovel yourself or paying someone to remove the snow for you. Fortunately, we provide the best, most convenient solution in our heated driveway installations.
Heated driveways are becoming more popular among homeowners. While you might find the installation a significant investment, for many people the benefits far outweigh the costs.
In addition to keeping snow off your driveway, heated driveways melt ice off your pavement making your home a safer and more comfortable place. It also significantly reduces the need for salt and other chemicals that tend to damage your driveway. They also save you money in maintenance and repair costs long-term.
How Do Heated Driveways Work?
Heated driveways use radiant heat under the surface of your asphalt or concrete to melt snow as it lands rather than let it pile up.
There are two types of heated driveway systems: electric and hydronic. Electric systems use an electrical resistance cable laid approximately 2-inches underneath the pavement.
Hydronic systems use a flexible polymer tubing along with a boiler/water heater to pump hot water through the system. Snow melts away as you turn on the heat generated by the cable or piping.
Both types of snowmelt systems have their advantages and disadvantages. If you’d like to know more about which solution is right for your home, call Limitless Paving & Concrete, and we’d be happy to answer any questions you have.
Is a Heated Driveway Worth the Cost?
A heated driveway has many benefits for homeowners, the main one being you no longer need to shovel snow or pay a snow removal contractor. If you value your time and would like to spend less of it in your driveway with a shovel, then you should consider a heated driveway.
Plus, you’ll save money and time on salt and other de-icing products. Over time, these products will damage your pavement leading to a shorter overall service life.
A heated driveway is an excellent investment if you are looking to save time, money, and keep your driveway pavement healthy for many years to come.
