In Europe, they have been melting snow for many years on slopes and main roads where dangerous situations can occur. With our system, we can calculate the amount of energy needed to melt the snow and install water-based radiant heat to keep the temperature in the 35 to 40 range. With the advent of condensing boilers, this has become much more efficient. In both private and commercial locations, many use a snow melt system to keep driveways and walkways free of snow in the winter months. As well as eliminating the labor and time involved in snow removal, the chance of accidents is lowered, greatly decreasing the insurance risk.
