Cost Effective Snow Melting Effortlessly Clears This NYC Driveway

New York City Skyline from a Distance

Located on one of the world's largest natural harbors, New York City (often called the Big Apple or NYC) consists of five boroughs, each of which is a separate county of New York State, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island. The city is also well known by its iconic skyscrapers like the Empire State and Chrysler buildings along with its Broadway theatre district. New York has a way of casting a spell over its inhabitants — and even visitors — thanks to its tall buildings, historic charm, cultural landscape, and capability to make dreams come true. In the Big Apple, anything can happen.

And that includes cold, snowy winters. Frosty weather and below freezing temperatures throughout the wintertime are common in New York City. Typically, people in NYC don’t experience temperatures above freezing during the entire winter season. And according to currentresults.com the average monthly snow fall is approx. 5 - 9 inches between December and February. That’s just one of many reasons why a WarmlyYours snow melting system is the perfect solution to keep your driveway, walkway or most any outdoor surface clear of snow and safe for your family and friends. 

Driveway Heating Makes a Big Difference in the Big Apple

When these NYC homeowners were replacing their driveway, they decided to install a driveway heating system for their 15 x 50-foot driveway. The tire tracks option made sense for the long driveway and would be both cost effective, by cutting down on installation and operating costs, and still provide great functionality. See plan below.

The 400 sq. ft. tire tracks snow melting cost $3560.00 or $8.90 per sq. ft. Now that the system had been selected, it was time to add the control. There are numerous control options to pair with any snow melting system.
