This Kansas City Driveway is Safely Snow-Free with Outdoor Heating

Kansas City Skyline at Sunset

Kansas City (KC) sits on Missouri's western edge, straddling the border with neighboring Kansas. Located in the heart of the Midwest, as well as near the geographic center of the country, Kansas City lies at the confluence of the longest river in the country, the Missouri River, and the Kansas River (also known as the Kaw River). KC is renowned for its barbecue, jazz heritage and fountains. 

Kansas City winters can be unpredictable with December and January recording the most snowfall. Based on currentresults.com the average snow fall in December is 4.4 inches while January experiences 4.1 inches. While winter can bring hazardous icy, snow-covered walkways and driveways, there is a convenient solution. A snow melting system from WarmlyYours can ease the stress of winter by saving you from dealing with the snow removal and any expensive de-icing chemicals, while it ensures that your home can be safely accessed. 

WarmlyYours has Got Your Back with Driveway Heating

This homeowner was replacing his driveway and with the variability of winter weather in KC he figured a driveway heating system would be worth the investment. He was getting close to retirement age and wanted to save himself (and his back) from the wear and tear of another winter keeping his large (29 foot wide x 55 foot long) driveway free of snow. When he discovered that a free installation plan comes with the system, that sealed the deal for him. This layout plan helps ensure that the installation goes smoothly. See below.
