Let us carry the burden.
Project-management

We can take a lead role in your project to coordinate with all involved trades. Plumbers, HVAC professionals, electricians, concrete contractors, landscapers each play a critical role in the setup of a hydronic system. Real estate in most mechanical rooms comes at a premium. Everyone needs their dedicated and common areas. Trades have to be coordinated in line with the progress of the project. We will liaise with all trades to coordinate progress of your project. An efficient and fully functional system, is the direct result of a well managed project from an experienced team. We ensure there are no surprises, blame games or wasting of your time and energy.

My basement in-floor heating was not working properly, I knew something was not right from a layman point of view like myself. Gabor came and explained to me what was wrong and rectified it as quoted.

I asked Gabor of GTAHeat to install water radiant heating (radiators) in my home. Right from the start it was obvious that he was a true professional. He was able to answer all my questions and presented me with the drawings. He then ran all the pipes and installed the hardware, consulting with me along the way. There were no hidden or surpise charges, everything that had to be done extra was presented for my approval beforehand. He did his job very quickly and the entire system launched flawlessly at the first attempt. You won't find a better specialist in this field, highly recommended.

GTA Heat was fantastic! Gabor and his partner are true gentleman and perfectionist when it comes to driveway heating installation. Gabors willingness to fit all the equipment in a very limited wall space and keep to his attention to detail made it look like a work of art. I am extremely happy with the service, quality and attention to detail. I give them my highest recommendation. Fantastic Job!!!

GTA HEAT.CA installed my heated driveway. They were very systematic, knew what they were doing, knew their product, and educated me in the system. This made my choice obvious when researching several companies to install my heated driveway. I highly recommend them!

Gabor and team did an amazing job. We have a large house with a complex forced air and radiant heat combination. After many unsuccessful visits with other HVAC companies I spent the time to find experts in hydronics. They were able to design and build a great solution and literally worked 12+ hours a day until it was all up and running. Highly recommended!

How much does a heated driveway cost?

The price of a snow melt install depends on the size of the area, the brand and model of the boiler used and the distance from the boiler to the snow melt manifolds. Like with many things the more you buy the cheaper you get as systems get scaled up the $/ ft² goes down. To properly quote a system we need to know the answers to the above variables as they greatly affect the installation costs. Please fill out our Quote Request form and you will get a quick and detailed free quote.

How much does it cost to heat my driveway?

The cost of running a snow melt system depends on a number of variables. These are:

  • The cost of a unit of energy used (Natural Gas $/m³, Electricity $/kwh, Propane $/L)
  • The size of the snow melt area
  • The temperature of the air
  • The humidity of the air
  • Wind speed
  • Thickness of the underlying insulation
  • The diameter of the tubing in the ground
  • The rate of snow fall
  • The duration of the snow fall
  • The BTU/ft² per hour we are able to deliver to the ground
  • The thickness and material of the slab above the tubing
  • The drainage of the heated area

All the above variables will dictate how long your snow melt system is operating and and therefore consuming energy.

That being said lets look at a 1,000 ft² driveway in the GTA that is well insulated with R10 closed cell insulation from below on a well drained driveway using 3/4″ tubing.

Boiler used: High efficiency modulating boiler 199,000 BTU/hr. 96% peak efficiency
Design glycol temperature: 150°F
ΔT of glycol: 25°F
Boiler efficiency at 125°F return glycol temperature: ~89%
Energy input: 199,000 BTU/hr
Energy output at design conditions: 177,110 BTU/hr
Edge and bottom loss 20% at the slab: 20% = 35,422 BTU/hr
Delivered to the slab: 141,688 BTU/hr
Energy usage: 199,000 BTU/hr
Estimated annual hours of operation: 120 hours (historical weather data)
Gas consumption: 199,000 x 120 = 23,880,000 BTU/yr
Fuel: Natural gas
Fuel energy content: 36,000 BTU/m³
Annual Natural Gas consumption: 23,880,000 / 36,000 = 663.33 m³/yr
Fuel: Natural gas

gas bill

That means that every operating hour the system will consume about $3.31 CAD

How we work

If you don’t mess up, there is nothing to fix.

01

Gathering information

We need the following information conveyed to us to begin the process if applicable:

  • Architectural drawings
  • Landscape drawings
  • Heat loss calculations
  • Loop layouts
  • Areas to be heated (floors, driveways, garages, pools)
  • Sizes of those areas
  • System’s location (mech. room or garage)
  • Pictures of the areas and location(s)
  • Number of heating zones per floor
  • Fuel availability (natural gas, propane, electricity, wood)
  • Address and contact information

02

Design

Once we have all the information we will design your system. For more complex hydronic systems we will create a mechanical design, if there is a need we also can provide heat loss calculations based on floor heating as the primary source of the home as well as loop layouts for those floors needed to obtain a building permit.

03

On-site meetings

Once a contract is signed we will arrange for an on-site meeting for any other trades that we will coordinate the process with. We will lay out amongst us where the plumber put their drains and pipes, the HVAC guys put their AC, HRV, gas manifold and ductwork, the electricians put their electrical panels, the landscapers and concrete guys to go over a driveway’s preparation. This prevents us getting in each other’s way and a lot of frustration.

04

Installation

Our work can has several phases for a full house floor heating system install. During construction we coordinate our scheduling between the trades if so desired. We never hold up construction this way, having ample forewarning when it is our turn to do a particular stage of the installation. Once a system is completed and commissioned we always help the homeowner understand the system and make sure they can fully control it. The more is learned, the less need for a call for help in case a power or gas outage interrupts the system or something similar.

Paid my penance by working all Saturday for the glory of the Church of Hydronics so the two small kids in the house can have hot water tonight.

Let`s transform a cracked boiler coupled to a leaking tank with some Kitec thrown in for good measure.

Carbon steel fittings should be avoided with any other metals in a hydronic heating system. They include dielectric unions on a stainless steel boiler connection where Galvanic Corrosion will happen before the insulating medium. #torontocustomhome #heating #hydronics #hvaccontractor #radiantheat #manifolds #torontocontractor #drivewayheating #turbomax #thermo2000 #radiantfloorheating #snowmelt #infloorheating #heatingsystem #hydronicheating #torontorenovation #torontoconstruction #electricboilers #heateddriveways #snowmeltsystem #mechanicalcontractors #ntiboilers #construction #snowmelt #dahlvalve ...

Done playing Tetris. Tubing comes next. This 600 sq` takes longer than 6,000 stapled down. I don`t know on what universe is this the preferred way of doing floor heating.
