Is it okay to cut the heating cable if it is too long for the application for which it was designed?

Never cut the heating cable. A heating cable will not work if it has been cut. If the heating cable is too long, call WarmlyYours to consult with a technician who will guide you in utilizing the additional length of cable.

How does the electric snow melting system compare to hot water tubing (hydronic) systems?

The material costs are similar. However, electric systems are easier to install, with fewer components and significantly lower maintenance costs. Electric systems will run for a shorter period of time to give the same level of performance but with much higher energy efficiency (typically 95%-98% efficient). Controls and sensors required for the two types of systems are very similar. Electric systems do not usually require slab insulation and do not create the concerns typically associated with hydronic systems. These concerns include, but are not limited to, return temperatures, flue gas venting, waterway shrinkage and property damage caused by leaking pipes or tubes.

Does the factory splice need to be completely embedded during installation?

Yes. The manufacturer's splice that connects the heating element to the cold lead should be entirely embedded in a noncombustible material (like asphalt, concrete, or mortar) within the outdoor surface that is being heated. 

7 people found this helpful.  Did you find this helpful? Yes No

Should I use mats or cable to install a snow melting system in outdoor stairs?

We suggest using cable to heat stairs as it is easier to route between the separate stairs. 

7 people found this helpful.  Did you find this helpful? Yes No

May I cross or overlap the heating cable?

Never cross, overlap, or allow the heating cables to touch each other. Doing so will quickly cause a circuit failure due to excessive heat build up. Always follow the product instructions and/or design layout plan to ensure the cable is installed with the correct spacing required for proper operation.

No ice in front of the garage doors for the first time in years!

Anonymous, Leawood, KS on 05/06/2022

Our snow melting system was installed this fall and for the first time in years we did not have ice in front of the garage doors for weeks in the winter. The WarmlyYours staff were great to work with and answered our many questions with patience and knowledge.

Learning Curve

Scott R., Omaha, NE on 02/01/2022

There is definitely a learning curve but after that it was great to see the finished product working. Customer was extremely happy.

Your online and telephone support system is the greatest!

Bonnie P., Sterling, AK on 10/17/2021

We just finished laying in the wire and poured our cement, just a day before it started snowing-so we are curing the cement as I type. The men are now hooking up the electrical inside portions. The instructions have been so easy to follow step by step. I wanted to let you know it was so easy, I decided to do the one side of my garage with both systems to have a longer driveway of warmth/snow melt...because it was so cost effective that our family man-power did the labor. I plan on contacting you next Spring after the thaw to order up more wire, etc to do the smaller 14 foot section, which will be turned into a bedroom with a big front window I hope to enjoy looking out during the winter, instead of looking at by past 6 foot snow falling off my roof and building a wall I can't see through. I will send the end result after the electrical is finished plus a photo. :):)

Will have to wait and see!

Cwhr R., Morrison, CO on 06/18/2021

Only the wire is installed in the new walk. I will not be able to give a full review till next winter.

Just as advertised!

Cory W., Sidney, MT on 02/15/2021

We have only had the chance to use it during the last storm~not complaining about that at all. The heated sidewalk worked just as it had been represented. Melted the snow enough to make it easy to remove & when it froze later, turning the heat on for a few hours took care of it. Very happy with this purchase.

Problem finding a breaker for this system!

Paul B., Lake Zurich, IL on 02/15/2021

Having difficulty finding the appropriate beaker to run this system. Tech support at WarmlyYours says one thing and the supply house where you need to purchase the breaker says another (not available at local Home Depot or Menards). It would be nice if there were a part number, a suggested list of preferred vendors and an up front price range before making this purchase. The prices quoted for this breaker were between $200-$700 (for one breaker)...the entire sidewalk heating system was $1,000. Still cannot locate to correct breaker! Frustrating...

Response from WarmlyYours:

Paul, We are sorry to hear that you are not able to locate the correct breaker for your installation. The GFEP breaker type for outdoor heating is dictated by the National Electric Code and should be selected based on your breaker panel type/brand. For your installation, one 15 Amp 240V GFEP Circuit is required as indicated in the installation and electrical plan. Feel free to reach out to us with the brand of your breaker panel and we will do our best to assist you and find the right parts or direct you to the right place.

Excellent Customer Service and Support

Richard L., Budd Lake, NJ on 02/15/2021

Working with WarmlyYours was great. The Customer Service Agent was knowledgeable, responsive and pleasant. All my questions were clearly answered promptly by the Technical Support Team. I would highly recommend this company for all of your floor and outdoor heating projects! Thank you

High quality cable

Cassandra F., Oakdale, MN on 02/15/2021

Very high quality cable. I was pleased the the cost equalled great quality.

Snow melting system

Alex L., Richmond Hill, ON on 02/15/2021

We recently purchased and installed a WarmlyYours snow melting cable and snow sensor controller for less than $1000. The installation instructions included with the cable were easy to follow and it took us about a week to get it installed. Now we're just waiting for snowy weather to test our snow melting system.

No Snow Yet

Fi A., Gatineau, QC on 02/15/2021

Haven’t tried the product yet as there’s no snow! Dealing with everyone was great and they have excellent customer service. I would recommend them in a flash.
