Keep The Snow Away From Your Mobile Home With A Residential Snow Melting System


When choosing a residential snow melting system it is important to take into consideration certain factors such as the cost and ease of installation, the need for other ancillary products if it is not a standalone system, the type of roofing used, the materials used for downspouts or gutters and required cable lengths should also be some factors worth taking into consideration. Listed below are some of the more popular residential snow melting systems readily available in the market. It is worth noting that while some of them can function on their own, there are those which cannot work alone and will therefore require other additional products to function properly.  

1) Product Name: ProMelt DS 224 Snow Sensor

Product Price: $ 451.00

Product URL: http://is.gd/TdnnhF

Product Details: as usual, ice and snow melting systems do operate best when they are properly connected to automatic controls. This sensor detects the low temperature plus the precipitation then activates the control panel which does then provide power to either the cables being used or the mats. This sensor is usually mounted on a pole where it is open to the elements and the sky. It also has a moisture sensor fitted at its top. Even though this sensor cannot operate alone, there are those which can operate alone. Once connected to a control panel, it can control an area of 250 to 1250 square feet of snow melting. All its internal electronic components are usually specified for operation in temperatures ranging between -40 C to around +85C. It does come with a one year warranty.

It is sold with its own Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) power unit that’s attached at the factory. The mat is covered with an olefin fiber carpet surface that’s ideal for the harsh winter months but still maintains a clean and neat look that’s suitable for your home. The carpet surface is ribbed so as to capture dirt and prevent accidents. It is compatible with all 120V outlets and can melt snow very fast at speeds of two inches per hour.

Product Details: this contactor does allow for a more modular control of the ice and snow melting system. It should be noted that it is possible to connect and run many SC-40C by using a single APS-4C control panel from up to five hundred feet away by simply using an 18 AWG 2 wire jacketed lead or even attain distances of one thousand feet by using a 12 AWG 2 wire jacketed cable. The system does have a toggle switch and a GFEP (ground fault equipment protection) which can help combat heavy snow fall by initiating a hold on which can last for up to ten hours.
