PDH Course - Electric Snow Melting Systems
Improve Safety, Reduce Liability, And Protect Your Building
Electric snow melting systems are very effective and efficient, helping protect your investment.
Roof and gutter de-icing systems effectively channel melted water off your roof before it re-freezes and creates ice dams that collect standing water until it begins leaking into the building resulting in very costly repairs. Many roofs have architectural features like gables and dormers that can block sunlight (nature's way of melting off snow). Electric de-icing systems help to clear snow accumulations that can lead to problems in these areas that see lower sunlight exposure. Roofs, gutters, and downspouts are also very expensive, and the electric de-icing system is a perfect way to help ensure your roof lasts and performs as it should for decades.
Similar to roofs, sidewalks are an expensive property investment, and spreading salt to melt snow will severely shorten the life expectancy of your concrete. Using property maintenance contractors, or purchasing equipment, salt, and manpower can be an expensive proposition.
Electric sidewalk snow melting systems react faster than hydronic systems, provide more consistent melting across the heat footprint, and have no mechanical or moving parts, resulting in very little system maintenance. They also have very predictable operating costs you can plan for (figuring out the accurate run-time cost per hour is easy) and they accumulate fewer run-time hours than hydronic systems. Frost-heave prevention is also a closely related application we can provide product, technical, and design support for also.
In this webinar, we will go over everything you need in an electric snow-melting system for roofs, gutters, and pavement. Note that this is a NYS PDH-accredited course.
