Heated Driveways and Radiant Snow Melting Systems

Have you bought your new motorcycle yet? You know the one you will have room to park in the garage now that you’ve sold your snowblower. Why would you sell your snowblower? Because this is the year you’re going to call Climate Control Company to install a radiant snowmelt system for your Glenwood Springs, Aspen, or Vail, CO home or business.

Ditch the shovel

It may be good exercise, but we don’t know many people who enjoy shoveling snow or scraping away the ice. As the old advertising slogan goes, you may think installing a snowmelt system is expensive, but the feeling you get when the driveway is ice free when you leave for work is PRICELESS.


We can install a radiant snowmelt system under any driveway surface. Concrete, asphalt, brick pavers, it just doesn’t matter. If you’re not familiar with how it works a snowmelt system is just another form of the radiant heating inside your house. Durable plastic tubing is installed under the driveway, sidewalk, or parking lot. A high-efficiency boiler circulates hot water through the tubes and presto—no more snow and ice. You don’t even have to turn it on and off. Sensors detect snow and ice and turn it on automatically.

Liability concerns

There are many great reasons to invest in a radiant snowmelt system, but don’t forget about this one. Safety should always be a top priority for home and business owners. The hassle and cost of a single slip and fall lawsuit can make the investment worthwhile. That’s especially true for businesses. Snowmelt systems are a great investment for ski resorts and the businesses that spring up around them. Think of the thousands of people who stream through them during the ski season, each one a potential damage claim if an accident happens.
