Low Cost Driveway and Walkway Snow Melting in the Big Apple

New York City Skyline from a Distance

The most populous city in the United States, New York City (NYC), is a globally powerful city, situated in the Northeastern United States, in southeastern New York State, approximately halfway between Washington, D.C. and Boston. Located on one of the world's largest natural harbors, NYC consists of five boroughs, each of which is a separate county of New York State, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island. 

Frosty weather and below freezing temperatures throughout the wintertime are common in New York City. On average, people in NYC do not experience temperatures above freezing during the entire winter season. That’s one reason 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. 

Driveways and Walkways are Popular Snow Melting Projects

When this NYC homeowner needed to replace his driveway recently, he decided it would be a good idea to add a snow melting system underneath both the driveway and walkway leading up to his home. With severe winter weather in the Northeast, it had been necessary to dig out from several snow storms and he wanted to avoid that strenuous, back-breaking labor of shoveling in the future. See installation plan below.

To heat 121 square feet of the concrete driveway/walkway it cost $1030.00 or the equivalent of $9.32 per square foot. He selected the snow melting cable option as it was flexible for installing his system along a curved pattern. Once he decided upon his system, it was time to add the control. There are numerous control options to pair with any snow melting system as noted below.
