The Benefits of Snow Melting Systems on Your Roof and Driveway

Automotive,Home Improvement
Dreading the snow this winter? A snow melting system for your driveway, roof, and gutters offers a permanent solution to your ongoing need to remove ice and snow from your property. With professional installation by a licensed electrical contractor and other professionals, you can make sure that your snow melting systems are as safe as they are convenient.

Snow Melting Systems Alleviate Winter Woes

Whether you need to keep the snow away from your home or your commercial or industrial property, electric snow melting systems can be a handy, cost-effective solution to winter woes. Rather than having to shovel your driveway yourself or wait for the plowing service to come, you can automatically melt snow with an automated system. Even if the driveway becomes slippery after a freezing rain, your system will make driving or walking on the surface safe again, without chemicals that can ruin the concrete. A similar type of snow melting system installed on your roof can prevent snow from melting and refreezing, which makes the roof line subject to harmful ice dams.

Both driveway and rooftop building systems, while requiring an initial investment, can save on the costs of plowing services to remove snow from ground surfaces and rooftops and save even more on the cost of chemicals. They can also save you on liability claims from tripping and falling incidents on stairs, walkways, and driveways, as well as on repair costs from having to call in the professionals to undo the damage of ice dams.

How the Systems Work

Ground and rooftop systems can operate with electrical cables or mats that are installed along with a thermostat and deicing cables, which is operated with a flip of a switch. Some even have sensors so delicate that the presence of moisture below certain temperatures will activate them immediately. They can even keep working throughout a storm. Driveway systems can also operate with electrically controlled radiant heat whereby a series of tubes conduct hot water under the pavement.

You can install a driveway system under concrete, asphalt, or pavers. The most economical way to add a system is before you lay a new or replacement driveway or walkway, but to accommodate it in an in-place driveway, the contractor can cut grooves in the driveway to accept the cables. In a typical installation, an electrician would aid in the design and installation of the cable or conduit system and connect it to the electrical panel, and then a second contractor would lay the concrete, or the asphalt, or install the pavers on top of the cabling.

Rooftop and gutter systems use cable that attaches to the roof downspouts, gutters, and places where sections of the roof come together and around dormers; the wiring is covered with a copper or painted aluminum cover panel. As with driveway installations, having an electrician on hand will ensure safe installation of cables and GFI circuit breakers.

Why Call an Electrical Contractor?

Your goal when adding a snow melting system on your roof or on ground surfaces, such as driveways, walkways, and steps, is to have a trouble-free installation that requires minimal service once in place. Finding the source of problems in the system once it is in place can be difficult, as well as costly. Having an electrical contractor oversee the installation can reduce the possibility of expensive problems later.

For best results, have a licensed electrical contractor on hand to work with other professionals. Snow melting systems can prove to be a winter-busting low maintenance system for your home or business.
