Sun Valley Radiant Driveway Heating Systems
Shoveling snow from the driveway and sidewalks during winter in Sun Valley is no small task. While this is still the most common way of dealing with snowfall, some business and homeowners are turning to automated snow melting systems to ease the stress of Idaho winters.
Radiant heating systems work by generating heat under the driveway and warming the pavement so that snow does not accumulate during snowstorms. Electric heated driveways use heat resistance cable, either in mats or separate cable off spools, that are embedded in the concrete, asphalt or under pavers. The mats feature pre-spaced cable and can be quickly rolled out for easy installation.
Snow melting systems are fully automated, so they only operate when conditions warrant. As snow hits, the system activates to prevent snow buildup. After the storm the system remains on for a few minutes to dry the driveway. This “afterrun” function is a safety feature that prevents ice from forming. Heated driveways not only eliminate the need for manual snow removal, they also reduce the need to use salt or other snow-removal chemicals on the driveway. This greatly reduces the amount of corrosive damage that the driveway absorbs, and also protects surrounding grass and shrubs from the harmful runoff of snowmelt chemicals.
Finding the Best Snow Melting System
There are several factors to consider when searching for a snow melting system. While purchasing the most proven system components is crucial, it’s vital to deal with a provider that includes complete system design/layout and support services. The design should not only show the layout of the heating cable and components, but include all the technical and electrical information, such as the proper load calculations, breaker sizes, number of breakers, etc. And keep in mind that in order to ensure that the warranty remains valid, a licensed electrician must connect the system.
