If there is one thing we can be sure of in Central Indiana, it is that we will have to deal with ice and snow every year from December to February, and sometimes longer than that. Of course the snow is beautiful to look at, but it can lead to dangerous slips and falls or simply hurt backs from the shoveling. There is also the potential cost of damages to roofing or gutters, or even one car sliding into another in your driveway. Snow also costs money to remove, whether you buy the equipment to do it yourself, pay someone else to remove it, or simply buy chemicals to melt it.
However, there is another way to deal with it, one that allows you to stay inside toasty warm by the fire while the snow and ice simply melts away before it builds up. That method would be the installation of electrical mats or cables where you need them, to keep the area clear without any effort from you. For example, they can be placed in a driveway, in your patio, on steps or stairways, sidewalks, on your roof, or even in the gutters. Where ever snow or ice causes problems, a melting system can be installed to resolve those problems.
There are portable products that can be put on top of your existing porch or stairs, and simply plugged in. There are also fixed products, such as cables or mats, which are designed to be installed and then covered with a new top layer of material. There are also a number of control options to make the system operate, including a simple on-off switch, a thermostat, a timer, or a sensor. The systems come in either 120 or 240 volts and in a variety of common sizes, and they can be customized to match any configuration needed.
