In winter we are forced to eliminate or mitigate the disadvantages associated with the accumulation of snow and ice on sidewalks, steps, driveways, roofs, squares, sports fields. There are many ways to remove snow and ice from the considered surfaces, including chemical, mechanical or use of a heating installation. Mechanical or manual methods do not always allow to completely remove snow and ice, while chemicals often have a negative impact on the environment. The most effective is the use of an electric or liquid heating installation. The article presents the results of technical analysis for a maneuver area heating system for driving training lesson using a heat pump with a ground heat exchanger, as well as financial analysis of its application in the established conditions. The literature lacks information on this subject, so it was interesting to investigate whether the proposed installation is technically and economically feasible.
