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. Luckily, there’s an easy solution if you’re in Maryland.
Heated driveways are becoming more popular among homeowners. While it can be a significant investment, for many people the benefits far outweigh the costs. In addition to keeping snow off your driveway, heated driveways keep ice off your pavement making your home a safer and more comfortable place.It also significantly reduces the need for salt and other chemicals which will lower the amount of damage your driveway sustains in the winter months, saving you money in maintenance and repair costs. We install heated driveways in Baltimore MD as well as Frederick MD and many other surrounding areas, so give us a call today!
How do heated driveways work?
Heated driveways use radiant heat under the surface of your asphalt or concrete driveway 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 electric resistance cable laid approximately 2” underneath the pavement. Hydronic systems use a flexible polymer tubing along with a boiler/water heater to pump hot water through the system.
The heat generated by the cable or piping spreads through the asphalt or concrete surface, keeping any snow from accumulating. 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 and Concrete and we’d be happy to answer any questions you have.
