The appeal of a snow melting system is pretty obvious to anyone that has ever had to spend some quality time with their snow shovel in the wintertime. Whether it’s your driveway, walkway or patio, it’s comforting to know that you can count on a snow and ice free surface. However, one of the most common misconceptions about electric snow melting is that a heated driveway cost to operate is too high.
The truth is that a snow melting system is an affordable alternative to other forms of snow removal like paying a plow-service or using chemical melting agents after every snowfall. This is because a snow melting system does not need to run continually, or even every day. In fact, a system only really needs to run long enough to melt the fallen snow and evaporate the leftover water.
