Whether you’re a developer, property manager, homeowner or business owner in a cool climate, you likely had to deal with more snow removal this past winter than you wanted to. Vow to make it easier on yourself next winter by getting radiant heat panels for your driveway from Gordo Sales.
Snow may be beautiful, but it can get ugly when it piles up in your driveway or parking lot. Whether you shovel it, use a snow blower or plow your driveway, it’s a nuisance. If you’re a property owner, you need to have the snow cleared first thing in the morning to provide a safe environment for your tenants. Some winters, the chore can seem never-ending.
When your driveway is icy, it poses other challenges. Ice is hard to remove, especially if you have pavers or cobblestones instead of asphalt or cement. Many property owners use ice melt, but ice melt is bad for both concrete and asphalt, and it causes it to break down more quickly. Ice melt is also bad for pets and children if they accidentally ingest it.
Chopping away at ice on your driveway is also bad for the surface underneath (as is plowing) and it’s exhausting. Even letting snow or water sit on your concrete driveway breaks it down faster because concrete is porous.
Radiant heat for your home is a smart idea because it saves money and makes your home more comfortable. But you can have this convenience outside as well.
When you’re thinking about radiant heating for your driveway, you have a couple of choices: heating mats or cables. Mats are easy to lay and come in different sizes, but if you have a circular driveway, cables can be manipulated more easily. In fact, you can even add them to walkways and stairs.
You can install radiant heat panels under asphalt, cement or stone driveways.
Radiant heat panels for your driveway are probably less expensive than you think. The next time you need your driveway resurfaced, instead of paying for this service, you can put the money toward installing radiant heat panels.
You can even get radiant heat panels installed in your garage at the same time. This is an amazing benefit if you use your garage for more than just parking your car. Whether you have a workshop in your garage, you use it as a gym or you want a nice, big space for your kids to play, radiant heat panels can make your garage comfortable all winter long.
Installing radiant heat panels in your driveway, walkway or garage will also increase the value of your property. It’s a great perk. If you’re a developer, installing radiant heat panels will make your property much more appealing to buyers.
