SNOW MELTING SYSTEM BENEFITS

Installing a Snow Melting System provides a permanent solution to the problems caused by cold weather. Improve safety by providing instantaneous relief from snow and ice and increase your bottom line by reducing the cost associated with applying chemicals, owning snow clearing machinery or hiring outside services.

How Does Snow Melting System Work?

Snow-covered driveways are treacherous and clearing them off snow is an arduous task even for the physically fit individuals. This is the reason snow-melting systems are becoming increasingly popular in today’s businesses and homes as a convenient and cost-effective way of eliminating snow or ice from parking areas, driveways, sidewalks, and emergency areas. These systems eliminate the need for snow removal labor and salting. They also reduce the risk of liability associated with personal injuries.

Note that all snow melting systems are electronically operated. When blowing or falling snow and freezing rain starts, the snow-ice detector automatically turns on the system. The system must have a programmable thermostat. This component senses the surface temperature and turns the heating system on and off to only offer enough heat to melt away snow or ice in the driveway or other surfaces.

  • Ideal for driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, stairs, ramps, bridges and many other applications

  • For use in concrete, asphalt, paver or stone

With a functional thermostat, the snow melting system stays on while monitoring the storm and turns off when the storm stops. When the next period of precipitation starts, the system automatically switches on. Note that the system’s temperature sensor in the controller allows the system to run only when weather conditions are suitable for melting. That means the system saves energy as it doesn’t operate unnecessarily.

Snow melting systems must be installed by a licensed electrician as they must tap into your panel box. Depending on the nature of the system you install, the power system coming into your house might require an upgrade. Thus, the entire installation process requires specialized expertise to identify and address all issues that may crop up due to the increased power usage within your home.

Snow Melting System For Your Driveway

The winter season can be so overwhelming if you don’t have a convenient and effective snow melting system. Imagine how tiring and time consuming it can be to clear your property of constant snow build up. If you invest in a proper snow melting system, you’ll finally begin to look forward to those long winter months. The systems are designed to prevent snow and ice build up in outdoor areas like the driveways and stairs. They can really help in minimizing minor injuries and inconveniences such as getting stuck in the driveway due to a heavy snowstorm that occurred overnight.

Snow Melting Mats

Snow melting mats provide a convenient and efficient method of keeping snow and ice away from the home during winter. They work by preventing snow from accumulating by melting it on contact. These mats are also used in commercial facilities and industrial environments. They are available in different lengths varying from 2′ and 3′ widths. One of the main advantages is that they are easy to install. The mats are evenly spaced to guarantee optimal performance. However, they are more costly than cable. The mats are ideal for regularly shaped areas such as driveways and walkways and are available in 120 or 240 voltages.

Snow Melting Cables

Snow melting cables are the most suitable solution for even the most unusually shaped areas. They come in a wide range of sizes and voltages including 120 and 240. Snow melting cables with 208 and 277 voltages are also used in commercial projects. They are cheaper than snow melting mats but require more installation time. If you have a circular driveway or outdoor stair then these cables are an ideal solution, unlike mats which fit regular-shaped areas. The installation can be done with spacing to increase or reduce the watts per square ft.

Full Coverage vs. Tire Tracks

A full coverage snow melting system is designed to protect your entire driveway from snow and ice accumulation. However, full coverage systems can have high operating costs and huge energy demands. There are alternatives like zoned heating that can be used to minimize these costs. What happens is that the entire project is broken down into zones, which are heated one at a time. This helps to lower the energy used per hour significantly. Another alternative that is significantly cheaper to install and offers great functionality is heating the tire tracks. 2 sets of heating elements are installed, approximately 2 feet wide to clear heavy snowfalls and maintain the effectiveness of the system.

Snow Melting System In Action

Snow melting systems are designed to ensure your driveway remains usable even in the heaviest of snowfalls. Aside from offering convenience, these systems can add on to the overall value of a home. You can find a system that is affordable with a low operating cost and ease the stress and burden of dealing with snow and ice after winter. Using the right controls, you are able to maintain the temperature of the driveway heating system and ensure optimal performance. We even have highly advanced controls that can sense when snow is falling and turn on the system. This next winter, relax with your friends and family as the snow melting system does all the work for you.
