Maximizing a Cheyenne Porch with Affordable Snow Melting

House cover by snow in winter landscape

Cheyenne is the capital and most populous city in Wyoming. Situated on Crow Creek and Dry Creek, Cheyenne lies at the northern boundary of the extensive and fast-growing Front Range Urban Corridor that stretches from Cheyenne to Pueblo, Colorado. Winters are cold and moderately long and snowfall is greatest in March and April, seasonally averaging 60 inches. Regardless of the amount of snow, cold weather can bring ice resulting in slippery surfaces. An effective way to extend your outdoor entertaining season is by adding a snow melting system when installing or replacing a patio or porch. Further, you can ensure that your family and guests can safely access your home with snow melting for driveways and walkways. 

Enjoy Your Porch Longer by Adding Outdoor Heating Underneath 

When these Cheyenne homeowners were adding a porch they both recalled hearing the virtues of outdoor radiant heat on one of the home improvement shows. After doing some research on their own, they decided it was just what they needed to keep the porch ice and snow free through the winter season. They chose a WarmlyYours system with snow melting mats as it was easy to install and would work well under the pavers they had selected for their new porch. Each quote comes with a free no-obligation installation plan, as detailed below.

To heat 150 square feet of the porch, the cost for the snow melting mat was $1560.00 or $10.40 per square foot. Even better, the operating cost was very low at only 76 cents per hour to run the snow melting system based on the 10.16 cents per KWh cost in Cheyenne. Next, it was time to decide what control to use for their system that would best meet their needs and budget.

Snow Melting Controls Offer Variety of Choices
