Snow & Ice Sensor Placement

One of the major causes for snow and ice melt systems to not function properly is poor placement of the system’s control sensors. The system’s control sensors act as the nerves of the system, telling it when to turn on and off based on environmental conditions. These sensors detect for the presence of moisture at or below a particular temperature indicating the presence of snow or ice conditions if they fail to accurately detect these environmental conditions the system will not work as intended.

Placement of these sensors determines how effective and efficient the snow and ice melt system will perform. This document explains some major factors to take into account when placing snow and ice melt system sensors, such as different snow types, local weather patterns, and how buildings affect wind and snow.
