Snow Melting Cables Embedded in Sand Under Pavers for a Heated Driveway
A heated driveway can come in many different forms but one thing they all have in common is making life easier in the winter time. This particular project involved a full coverage heating system embedded in sand underneath pavers. Not only is this combination extremely attractive, it also allows for pain-free troubleshooting in the future if a section of the electrical cable needs to be repaired since the pavers and sand in the affected area can be removed and put back easily. As you'll see in this video, the installation of a snow melting system involves attaching the electric heating cables to a rigid framework which allows for the system to maintain consistent spacing between the heating elements. Keeping this spacing ensures efficient operation and prevents the cables from getting too close together. This beautiful and functional driveway should help take some of the irritations of winter away for these lucky homeowners.
