Customer Questions & Answers

Economy Snow & Ice Melt Control has 26 Questions and Answers.

Don't see the answer you're looking for? Post your question

How quickly do these systems melt the snow?

That depends on a number of variables (like the temperature outside) but generally speaking these snow melting systems are designed to melt 1" - 3" of snow per hour. Anything above 3" per hour is typically considered blizzard conditions.

Is it okay to cut the snow melting cable if it is too long for the application for which it was designed?

Never cut the heating cable. A heating cable will not work if it has been cut. If the heating cable is too long, call WarmlyYours to consult with a technician who will guide you in utilizing the additional length of cable.

How does the electric snow melting system compare to hot water tubing (hydronic) systems?

The material costs are similar. However, electric systems are easier to install, with fewer components and significantly lower maintenance costs. Electric systems will run for a shorter period of time to give the same level of performance but with much higher energy efficiency (typically 95%-98% efficient). Controls and sensors required for the two types of systems are very similar. Electric systems do not usually require slab insulation and do not create the concerns typically associated with hydronic systems. These concerns include, but are not limited to, return temperatures, flue gas venting, waterway shrinkage and property damage caused by leaking pipes or tubes.

May I cross or overlap the WarmlyYours snow melt heating cable?

When installing outdoor WarmlyYours snow melting cables for your driveway, patio, walkway, terrace, stairs, ramp, etc. - NEVER cross, overlap, or allow the heating cables to touch each other. Doing so will quickly cause a circuit failure due to excessive heat build up. Always follow the installation instructions and/or design layout plan to ensure the cable is installed with the correct spacing required for proper operation.

Does the factory splice need to be completely embedded during installation?

Yes. The manufacturer's splice that connects the heating element to the cold lead should be entirely embedded in a noncombustible material (like asphalt, concrete, or mortar) within the outdoor surface that is being heated.

Jenn has provided one of the best customer support experience

Seward H., Gardnerville, NV on 06/03/2024

Jenn has provided one of the best customer support experiences we have ever had, every time we deal with her.

Very professional

Llc G., White Plains, NY on 04/19/2024

I needed this product asap.. They were on time and readily available for any questions!

Good choice

Mike M., Lakewood, CO on 12/11/2023

The WarmlyYours ice melt I recently installed is working great. They clearly have a 5 star product. I have only two slight complaints: none of the contractors referred by WY ever bothered to call back, so I had to find electrician and concrete guy myself. The plastic cover on the Snow Switch should be hinged instead of fastened with screws.

Great experience

Bill, Hawthorne, NY on 10/30/2023

From customer service to product quality, it was nice to have a company in your corner to help tackle a project.

Wonderful as usually

Jasmine U., Oak Grove, MO on 06/04/2023

Pedro and the tech team were wonderful as usual

Great Customer Service for an Excellent Product

Richard K., Lakewood, NJ on 03/17/2023

Our experience with WarmlyYours was great from the beginning. They were easy to work with and provided a custom plan and all the necessary hardware to accomplish the job. We changed the design in the process and we were helped every step of the way. The system was on just this week and everything functioned accordingly.
