Implementing Snow Melting System
The winter is coming, and you must focus on how you will handle the snowstorms. The right spot to install your snow melting mats and cables are the places on your outdoor property that face snow and ice build-up during like the driveway and roof.
To help you decide what the best course of action is for your property, here is a list of possible installation places and each place’s benefits:
An obvious choice for snow removal systems of any type, the driveway is one of the places that you always want to keep clear. Whether you are expecting guests or are just trying to get to work, a snow and ice-free driveway is an absolute necessity for traveling to and from your home. If you are coming back from a trip or vacation, the last thing you want to do is park your car on the side of the road and start shovelling before you can start unpacking.
Keeping your driveway clear of snow and ice buildup can also help prevent frost damage in the long term, which could lead to severe cracks and fractures in your driveway. An automatic snow melting system will help protect your driveway even more than regular plowing since the melting system won’t give your driveway enough time to accumulate vast amounts of snow. This kind of system can also be ideal for driveways that are simply too awkward to plow or shovel.
Installing an electric snow removal system on a walkway is more than just a convenience; it is also noteworthy safety precaution. Of course, a plow cannot tend to most walkways, and a shovel rarely does the most thorough job. Even after scraping away at the ice under the snow of your walkway, you may find that the surface is still quite slippery. Some people use salt to melt ice, but this can make a mess of clothes, shoes, vehicles, and your home. Resorting to a snow melting system is the cleanest, quickest, and most efficient way to dispose of pesky walkway buildup. Furthermore, your cement walkways will be kept safe from probable frost damage.
Depending on the type of patio you have, snow melting system could be exactly what you need to make your patio a viable hangout spot in the wintertime. Whether you want to enjoy your fire pit in the backyard, or simply want a place to sit outside every now and then, having an already cleared patio can be a great way of increasing your property’s amount of usable space in the winter. For those with outdoor hot tubs, a snow melting system could be the deciding factor of whether your hot tub is always accessible or not. Also, just like with your driveway and walkways, many paved and cement patios are susceptible to frost damage when covered with snow and ice for long periods.
