Snow Melting Systems, Mississauga

Every winter, many Canadians struggle with the cold, snow and large amounts of ice accumulation. One of the worst parts of a Canadian winter is dealing with clearing the snow and ice from walkways and driveways. This is a tedious but necessary task to ensure accessibility and safety, and minimize the risk of slipping and falling on ice. An electric snow melting system is a great way to reduce the amount of physical snow removal that homeowners perform, while also providing an efficient solution to snow accumulation.

In order to install a snow melting system, its necessary to install heated mats and/or cables underneath the pavement on the driveway/walkway. The heated mats are quick and east to install, and will melt the snow and ice efficiently so you as a homeowner won’t have to do it yourself. There is minimal equipment required – in addition to the heated mats, a relay panel, sensors and controllers may also be required.
