Snow Melting Systems, Vaughan

Each winter, many Canadians struggle with clearing the ice and snow surrounding their homes. It can be difficult having to constantly deal with precipitation, especially during the winter. In order to save more time and reduce exertion, many homeowners choose to install an electric snow melting system, which will automatically turn on when heavy snow occurs, and reduces the amount of manual labour and heavy lifting needed.

The snow melting system is able to melt the snow and ice by using heated mats or cables which are installed under the pavement on your walkway/driveway. The controller, relay panel and sensors are able to sense when snow is accumulating, and will automatically trigger the electric melting system to turn on. Electric snow melting is one of the quickest and most reliable ways to remove snow and ice, and can be installed in a variety of different locations such as driveways, parking lots, stairs and walkways.

Electric Floor Heating, Vaughan

Excluding snow removal, another big problem that many Canadians face during winter is the cold and uncomfortable floors in their homes. A quick and efficient way to warm up your home, while avoiding the feeling of cold floors, is to install electric floor heating. Electric floor heating can be used to warm up various locations, such as bathrooms, basements, kitchens and bedrooms, while keeping utility costs low.

Floor heating systems are quick and easy to install, and are compatible with a variety of flooring such as tiles, vinyl, hardwood and laminate. Similar to snow removal systems, electric floor heating requires placing heated cables under the floor in your home. The installation process is very safe, as all electric floor heating systems are designed to eliminate risk of fire or electric shock.
