Impedance Heating

Impedance heating systems act much like standard heating circuits, except the resistor is the pipe itself. This is accomplished when a small amount of AC voltage is applied across the terminals. The resulting impedance of the system generates heat on the pipe. The control panel for an impedance system provides power and control. However, the step down transformer is what provides the reduced voltage, 30VAC or less, to the pipe. This rating stays within OSHA and NEC limits.

Ice dams can be frustrating. An ice dam forms when the roof over the attic gets warm enough to melt the bottom layer of snow. The snow melts into water and  the water trickles down between the layers of snow until it reaches the eave of the roof. There, the water freezes, gradually growing into a mound of ice. These ice dams can damage both your roof and the inside of your home if the water finds an opening.
