What is the difference between an electric snow melting system and a hydronic system?
Though both systems are equally capable of clearing snow/ice buildup, and have similar material costs, electric systems are much easier to install and maintain. Electric systems have a much higher energy efficiency and are capable of delivering the same performance as hydronic systems with less energy consumption.
How quickly do electric snow melting systems melt snow?
The amount of snow and ice cleared per hour depends on a variety of factors, such as temperature and level of snow. Generally speaking, most electric snow melting systems are designed to melt 1″ – 3″ of snow per hour.
