Concrete driveways offer many advantages over asphalt, including greater durability, longer service life, and less maintenance. But in the winter, when temperatures plummet and the snow flies, concrete and asphalt surfaces have equal maintenance needs: Both require frequent shoveling and de-icing. Or do they?
Some homeowners and businesses are keeping their concrete driveways and other exterior flatwork surfaces maintenance-free and safe year-round by installing ice and snow melting systems. Not only do these in-slab snow melt systems eliminate plowing, backbreaking shoveling, and icy spills, they prevent potential damage to the concrete caused by snow-removal equipment and corrosive de-icers.
Systems are usually installed in new slabs before placing the concrete, the heating elements also can be retrofitted into existing slabs.
Hydronic heating is a safe, comfortable, economical and flexible way to heat any home. Hydronic systems circulate hot water through warming baseboards, radiators and/or radiant tubing in your floors or ceilings. There are many advantages to heating your home using a hydronic system, whether it is for a new home or as a replacement heating system.
