Expert installations and information for
Electric Driveway & Walkway Heaters.|
| Electric Snow & Ice Heaters. Electric Driveway & Walkway Heaters are the most effective way to prevent
snow & ice problems. The heaters are only used during a snow fall to melt the snow before it can accumulate. The heaters are custom fitted to be installed
under the top layer of the driveway or walkway surface (approx. 1 inch deep). The idea is to raise the surface temperature above freezing during the time
of precipitation. The installation of these heaters must be performed during the construction process.
For existing driveways we can re-surface them over top of these heaters.
| First we size up the area to be heated, then we need approximately three weeks
to order and receive them. The construction company that is doing the construction work is notified that we must work together at the same time to insure
a proper, trouble free installation. We can provide the contractor for you who is already familiar with the installation process.
Second we must install the power supply wiring to points of connection. This can be done during the ordering time to be ready for the installation.
The operation of the heaters is normally manual, but if an automatic system is required we can design it for you.
Third we coordinate the time of installation. The construction contractors will be prepared to work along with us. After the heaters are covered,
an electrical test is made to sense any leakage of current. The end product is to never have a snow & ice problem again.
