5 Ways a Heated Driveway Will Make Your Winter Wonderful , Windham, Connecticut

Mostly everything outside is burdened by snow during the winters in Windham, CT. But when it comes to your home, you don’t have to deal with the hassle of a snow-covered driveway. If you want to avoid the safety risks of an icy surface, Builder’s Concrete East recommends installing a heated driveway that uses electric coils or hydronic piping to supply radiant heat to the surface.

Should you invest in a heated driveway? Windham County’s best concrete pavers list a few reasons why you should.

5 Benefits of a Heated Driveway

heated driveway1. Melts Snow Fast

The radiant heat under the concrete or asphalt surface warms up enough to melt snow and ice to create a safe, clear path. A completely covered driveway may only take a few hours to fully melt. Instead of having to bundle up and shovel snow for winter driveway care, you can enjoy the comfort of your own home while your automatic heating system goes to work.

2. Automatic Ability

Modern electric heated driveways have sensors that are triggered when snow or ice conditions are present. This means that if your driveway is covered in the middle of the night, it will heat up and be ready for you in the morning. Once the process is done, the system will shut off automatically. Not only is this more convenient, but it can help reduce a great deal of energy costs.

3. Good Return on Investment

While it may cost you to have a heated driveway installed, it can provide a great return on investment. When snow and ice are consistently removed from your driveway, it can last much longer than if you let it sit there for weeks or months on end. Having a heated driveway can also boost the value of your property.

4. Little Maintenance Required  

Once a heated driveway system is installed, you’ll typically never have to work with it again. The electrical or hydronic components have no moving parts, meaning they require no regular upkeep. Additionally, you won’t have to find a place to store a large mechanical system, since most of it is installed below ground.

5. Withstands Driveway Repair

If you need to pour new concrete or asphalt, many modern systems can withstand the heat associated with applying these materials. So while you may need to resurface your driveway every so often, your heated system will continue to function.
