Denver is known for its skiing, the Rocky Mountains and its mile-high elevation but while the Mile-High City is a beautiful place to behold, it’s also a cold and often snowy one. According to currentresults.com snow mostly accumulates during December and January. Typically, on two or three days in January and in December, the snow covering Denver gets to five or more inches deep.

Snowstorms of over five inches a day normally occur a couple times a year. But major blizzards that dump ten inches or more in one day are rare events, that don't necessarily happen every year. While uncommon, snowstorms of that severity can still descend on Denver anytime from October to April. A driveway snow melting system can be an essential home improvement by removing the winter hassle of shoveling snow and ice from your driveway. 

Saved from Mile-High Winter Headaches with Snow Melting System

These homeowners were replacing their driveway and had heard the praises of a snow melting system from their neighbor. When it came time to start planning their project they knew they just had to include driveway heating. They chose to heat the 24 x 23-foot space with WarmlyYours snow melting mats. See floor plan below.

For this project, the cost was $4050.00 for two WarmlyYours snow melting mats to heat 405 square feet of driveway equivalent to just $10.00 per square foot. The next step is to choose from a wide variety of available snow melting controls to operate the system.
