Driveway Heating – A Practical Way to Beat Winter in Toronto

Toronto Skyline at Dusk

Located in Southern Ontario on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is situated on a broad sloping plateau intersected by an extensive network of rivers, deep ravines, and urban forest. The city is mostly flat with some gradual hills and the land gently slopes upward away from the lake creating a very picturesque vista. But during the cold Toronto winter season that vista is frequently covered with snow. 

According to currentresults.com, snowstorms, sometimes mixed with ice and rain, can disrupt work and travel schedules, while accumulating snow can fall anytime from November until mid-April. The average snowfall is over 14 inches in January alone. A snow melting system from WarmlyYours can lessen the burden of winter by saving you from dealing with the snow removal and any expensive de-icing chemicals, while you are free to enjoy the beauty of the season without the added pressure. Designed to install directly in concrete, asphalt, or in mortar beneath pavers, WarmlyYours snow melting systems ensure that the driveway, patio, walkway or stairs stays both ice and snow free, allowing for safe passage.  

No More Plows or Snow Shoveling with a Snow Melting System

When resurfacing your driveway, it’s a perfect time to add a snow melting system.

It was also important to them to keep their property clear of ice and snow for family and visitors. To achieve this goal, they chose a WarmlyYours snow melting mat system as detailed in the installation plan below.
