When it comes to heated driveway or walkway solutions, external heating mats offer several advantages over internal heated coils. One major benefit of heated mats is their low initial cost and non-invasive installation. Unlike internal coils, which require embedding within the surface, heated mats can be easily set up, especially in existing structures. Installing internal coils may necessitate demolishing existing walkways, driveways, or staircases, resulting in increased installation difficulty and costs.


Additionally, ongoing operating costs and accessibility for maintenance and repairs should be considered. External mats, which only require an electrical outlet and can be simply plugged in, provide easy access for maintenance and repairs if needed. Furthermore, HeatTrak mats come with a two-year warranty and excellent customer service, offering the benefits of heated coils without the associated hassle.
