Heated Driveways Edmonton

For most Canadians living in areas that experience extreme snowy conditions, walking on driveways that are ice and snow covered is a very common reality. The buildup of ice and snow is a nuisance that often calls for shoveling and salting. If the problem is not handled in good time, the buildup can result in serious problems which range from extreme delays when the car is stuck in the driveway to injuries resulting from slipping. The snow can also turn into ice that is mixed up with salt. Needless to say, this combination of snow, salt and ice can be very hard to get rid of. You may need to commit hours of hacking and digging. It is because of these reasons that property owners are investing in a more reliable solution when it comes to the removal of snow and ice from the driveway.

How Does Heated Driveway System Work?

Residents of areas that experience extreme winter weather spend a lot of their time shoveling and salting their driveways. Shoveling snow from the driveway for more than three times in a day can leave anyone begging for an alternative solution.

Even for the people that live in areas that experience mild winters, the heated driveway system can be a great choice if you often find yourself dealing with limited mobility due to snow buildups or where you cannot find help to get rid of the snow. The driveway heating Edmonton will help you go through the entire winter with a safe passage and never spend time firing up the snow-blower, salting or using a shovel. It is good to note that replacing your drives will guarantee a proper installation of the heating system.

Driveway Heating System Installation

There are two main reasons why homeowners consider the installation of the driveway heating systems. The first reason is to help prevent slipping and falling when the driveway is covered in snow and ice. The second reason is mainly to prevent the pain of finding their vehicles stuck under a huge pile of snow or the driveway being inaccessible due to snow/ice buildup.

The process of installing driveway heating Edmonton is a straightforward one. Even so, you need to only work with experienced contractors and licensed electricians. The reason for this is because proper installation is the key to reliable performance from the driveway heating system. When getting ready for the installation, here are the key things that will have to be done:

  • Remove the asphalt or concrete. This is a task that has to be done by a professional.
  • Soil evaluation
  • Root removal

Here Is How A Heated Driveway System Works

Heated driveway systems are radiant floor heating systems similar to the ones installed indoors. Once the temperatures fall to a freezing point, the system pumps warm water and antifreeze through the tubing. This causes the snow/ice to melt. You can either install an automatic system or a manual one that requires that you flip a switch for the system to turn on.

Installing driveway heating in Edmonton does not mean that you must build a new driveway. In many cases, the system can be installed under the existing driveway. Certain factors will, however, determine if the system can be installed in your existing driveway. The contractors will consider such things as the time of year, trees in the proximity and soil compaction.

In the installation, the contractor determines the distance between the cables before laying them down. He will also place remesh to guarantee optimum heat distribution. Cable jumps might be needed if the driveway has cracks. A control panel will be installed at a convenient location in the house and once everything is confirmed to be working properly, asphalt or concrete will be poured to cover the driveway heating system. There is a drying time that has to be allowed.

 Driveway heating systems are available in many types and can be installed in various surfaces. Give us a call today to learn more.
