Heated Driveways in Denver: Methods and Benefits of Heated Pavers

Heated Pavers Denver

Removing snow from a driveway is probably not how most of us want to spend our time in the winter. And if you’re not shoveling it yourself, you be may be paying a snow removal company to do the job for you. Having a heated driveway in Denver can alleviate countless hours and the expenses associated with snow removal by keeping driveway pavers warm enough to allow snow to continually melt away. Curious about what a heated driveway system can do for you? See the following methods and benefits to having a Heated Driveway:
All heated driveways work off a system of radiant heat and typically can be installed in one of two ways:

  1. Electrical – A system of wires is installed under your driveway through which an electrical current runs, heating the pavers above.
  2. Heated water – A system of tubes is installed under your driveway through which hot water is pumped, preforming as the warming element for the heated pavers. This second option can initially cost a bit more to install, but ultimately uses less energy over time than the electrical option.


  • No More Ice: In addition to melting snow, heated pavers melt ice too. Heated driveways work well in freezing rain by keeping ice from forming, therefore making it less dangerous to get into or out of your car, or walk across your driveway.
  • Hassle-free Vacations: Enjoy easy access to your driveway when coming home from wintertime vacations. If it snows while you’re out of town, you won’t need to pay a snow removal company or your teenage neighbor to take care of the job. Plus, you’ll come back to a dry driveway!
  • Paver Longevity: Heated driveways reduce the need for salt or de-icing chemicals in the winter, which go a long way toward preserving your brick pavers and minimizing the damage caused by the salt and chemicals.
  • Set It & Forget It: Manual and automatic options are available for your convenience. Manually turn on your heating system when the snow starts falling, or rely on sensor technology to automatically turn on your Denver heated driveway system when it starts snowing.
