Snow Melting Systems, Toronto

One of the toughest parts of Canadian winters is having to deal with the cold and snow. During the winter, many home-owners struggle with having to constantly shovel snow which accumulates on their driveway and surrounding walkways. Though this is a problem in provinces with harsher climates, snow and ice accumulation may still occur in more moderate climates. As a result, many home-owners opt to install an electric snow melting system.

A snow melting system is capable of melting ice and snow by using heated driveway mats or cables, which can be installed in the pavement under your driveway. In addition to the heated mats or cables, snow melting systems also require a controller, relay panel and sensors which will sense when snow is falling and automatically turn on. Electric snow melting is one of the most effective and reliable methods of snow removal. They are capable of melting ice and snow from stairs, driveways, parking lots and walkways.
