A Warm Landing in Newark Thanks to a Low Cost Snow Melting System

Newark Skyline at Night

Situated approximately 8 miles west of Manhattan, Newark is the largest city in New Jersey, and it’s also the second largest city in the New York metropolitan area. In addition, it has the distinction of being one of the nation’s major air, shipping, and rail hubs. Like many locales, winters in New Jersey can vary from year to year. The heaviest snowfall amounts occur between the months of December and February with January averaging 8.0 and February averaging 9.3 inches annually. Snowstorms of over five inches a day normally occur once or twice a year. An effective way to deal with ice or snow on your property is to install a snow melting system whenever you are replacing a driveway, walkway, landing or patio. The time and labor you will save is significant, but the safety of your visiting family and friends cannot be measured.

Outdoor Heating Keeps Your Outdoor Surfaces Free of Ice and Snow

Installing a WarmlyYours snow melting system provides full accessibility to your home during adverse winter conditions. Designed to install directly in concrete, asphalt, or in mortar beneath pavers, our snow melting systems ensure that the driveway, patio, walkway, ramp, landing or stairs stays both ice and snow free, allowing for safe passage. This snow melting mat system for these Newark homeowners was installed on a landing. Every WarmlyYours quote includes a free installation plan - see the landing plan below.

In this case, the cost was $1800.00 for a WarmlyYours snow melting mat system to heat 150 square feet of landing under pavers. That amounts to $12.00 per square foot. Best of all the operating cost is very low at just $1.18 per hour based on the average KWh cost in Newark of 15.73 cents. To put it in perspective, during a typical snow event of 6 hours, it would only cost $7.08 to keep this landing clear of ice or snow. After selecting the type of snow melting system, the next step is to choose from the diverse collection of snow melting controls to operate the system. 

A Wide Variety of Snow Melting Controls

Advanced Snow Melting System Controls by WarmlyYours

Among the many control options, the WarmlyYours manual snow and ice melting control is a simple, affordable choice. UL Listed at 120 VAC operational voltage, this unit features a 12-hour, adjustable timer and a NEMA 1 enclosure with hinged cover that is suitable for use with relay panels. For use under asphalt the premium snow melting control is recommended. 

To minimize operating costs, the advanced snow melting control with automatic and manual override operator controls fits the bill. This advanced control includes an adjustable hold-on timer to continue heater operation up to 8 hours after snow and ice accumulation stop to ensure complete melting.
