Snowmelt may be used for many different applications, i.e.: melting snow, ice & frost from driveways, sidewalks, Porte-cochere, public entrances to parking garages, and emergency rooms. Snowmelt may be referred to as ice melting. These systems have become more evident over the past 10-15 years with Architects, Engineers, Builders, Developers and Homeowners. Building regulations may require them to be installed.
Snowmelt systems have become more efficient to operate over the past 5-7 years based on the boiler technology that has become available to North America in the form of condensing boilers. This combined with proper piping and controls applications, make these systems very practical, especially when you start comparing the economics of snow removal, insurance and potential life/safety issues, it may even provide building owners/operators cost savings on their liability insurance.
Snowmelting can be zoned into multiple areas or it can be left to operate as one. The choices of operation & application are varied to the point that it can be used to melt out areas of potential ice damming: roofs, gutters and downspouts.
If you think it should be melted the probability is there.
