Snow melting systems


  • snjobraedsla

Verkís is a leader among firms specialising in the use of geothermal heat, and the company has extensive knowledge of and experience in the design of snow melting systems.

The use of geothermal energy for space heating is more common in Iceland than everywhere else in the world. Once the hot water has passed through a building heating system, it is often used to melt snow.

Company staff have designed large snow melting systems for the City of Reykjavík and other municipalities for many years, as well as smaller systems for walkways and open areas around buildings of all types and sizes. The company has also evaluated and designed improvements in older snow melting systems in order to improve energy use and efficiency.
