RADIANT ROOF HEATING AND ROOF DEICING

The Benefits Roof Deicing Options How It Works The Installation Projects / Applications


How It Works
Roof Heating at a Glance:

Self-regulating roof heating element.


The thin, semi-conductive polymer heating element can be cut to size on the job site and discreetly secured under the shingles by nailing or stapling, making installation quick and easy.


Transformer for radiant roof deicing system.


Each individual power unit controls a specific section of the deicing system and steps down high voltage to low voltage (60 V or less). The individual control boxes are the source for monitoring the power and output to ensure safe, accurate, and optimal performance.


  Aerial mounted snow sensor for roof heating or driveway heating system.


An activation device/snow sensor automatically turns on the roof deicing system when temperature and precipitation conditions warrant.



A Closer Look at Radiant Roof Heating:

Electric, radiant roof heating and deicing systems contain three main components:

Heating Element - RoofHeat radiant heat systems are used for melting ice and snow under shingle roofs. Our heating elements vary in width and are very effective for roof deicing. The flat heating element is installed underneath the shingles. Our radiant heat specialists can help determine which roof heating element is best for your application. Images of various roof heating elements can be viewed on the Radiant Heat Installation page.

The roof heating system is self-regulating, which means that when the ambient temperature rises, the electrical resistance increases and the consumption of electricity decreases, preventing the element from overheating and ensuring energy-efficient operation.

Power Unit - Each individual power unit controls a specific section of the deicing system and steps down high voltage to low voltage (60 V or less). The individual control boxes are the source for monitoring the power and output to ensure safe, accurate, and optimal performance. The power unit monitors the heating element under the roof to melt snow and ice, protecting your roof from ice damage.

Activation Device - There are three different activation devices to choose from. A 12-hour timer, a gutter-mounted snow switch, and a temperature sensor. Depending on whether system automation is important to your application, one of our specialists can help you select which activation device will be best for you.
