Glycol Heated Driveways

Glycol-heated driveways use a closed system with PVC tubes, containing a Glycol liquid. This system includes a natural gas or propane boiler, which is usually placed in the basement or garage.  Glycol tends to have higher initial set-up costs, however, it saves money in the long run due to efficiency.

These systems are always on at low power in the winter, so when the snow sensor detects snowfall, they turn on right away and keep the driveway clear of snow or ice. Even during a heavy storm!

Electrical Heated Driveways

Electrically heated driveways are widely used due to their easy installation and customization features. These systems are simply installed beneath the driveway and do not require any additional space, which is a huge bonus for many homeowners.

They use metal coils and panels that are connected to a nearby electrical panel/breaker. Homeowners are able to automate the system to control the date, time, and temperature it is set to. This means you can turn it on and off as needed, which is especially convenient in the winter. That being said, they do take a little longer to heat up than glycol systems and are also more expensive to run.
