Snow Resistant Driveways
I was driving into work, and I saw this van with ads on it that talked about using radiant heat to melt snow on a driveway if it snows, just like the idea I had a couple years ago. I thought that was pretty cool. I think I'll ask them how much it costs.
They do this in Alaska all the time. Some pipe a hot water line through the cement, others put heating wires. It works very nicely when I saw it in Cordova.
They use the same kind of thing (warming rods imbedded in cement) for the front parking spots at my wife's work.
