Snowmelt Systems

Why Should You Implement a Snowmelt System?

Snowmelt systems play a vital role in safeguarding homeowners and businesses from the hazards of snow and ice accumulation on driveways, walkways, entrances, parking lots, patios, loading docks, and other surfaces, without the need for salt and chemicals. Snow melt systems are a technological alternative to shoveling, salting, snow plowing, snow blowing and other snow removal methods, offering convenience and safety year-round.

Our snowmelt systems utilize hydronic technology, and can function independently or as integral components of a comprehensive radiant heating system.

How do Snowmelt Systems Provided by Canadian In-floor Radiant Solutions Work?

With our specialized snowmelt systems, tubing is run under the surface, whether it's a driveway, walkway, parking lot, patio, or porch steps. Heated water is mixed with glycol, a commonly used anti-freeze, and pumped throughout the tubing, evenly distributing the solution throughout your snowmelt system. Heat then radiates up from the tubing to the surface of your driveway, melting away snow and ice before it accumulates. Drains strategically placed around the perimeter catch the water run-off produced by the snowmelt system, channeling the water away from your driveway.
