Snowmelt systems AKA underground heating systems for driveways and walkways are convenient, but underground leaks can wreak havoc! ACS Underground Solutions specializes in leak detection using thermal imaging and can precisely locate problem areas in a radiant heat snowmelt system.
SNOWMELT SYSTEMS IN NEW ENGLAND
Winters can be harsh with cold temperatures and snowstorms, which is why many properties utilize snowmelt systems for commercial, municipal, and residential areas. While snowmelt systems are made to last for years, all materials wear and tear with time and repairs can be costly with a closed tube system that’s located underground and hard to reach.
DOES YOUR SNOWMELT SYSTEM HAVE A LEAK?
Possible signs of snowmelt system leaks include insufficient heating of the ground to melt snow and ice, uneven areas of heat, and cracks in foundation where a snowmelt system exists. If you think your snowmelt system in CT, NY, NJ, MA, or RI has a leak, contact us to schedule a leak detection service.
HOW TO DETECT LEAKS IN A SNOWMELT SYSTEM:
It’s impossible to see what’s underground, which is why at ACS Underground Solutions we use thermal imaging to locate the exact leak location in a snowmelt system. Leaks should be fixed ASAP to prevent excess glycol from damaging the slab and surrounding buildings, but before any repairs can be made in a snowmelt system, you’ll need to pinpoint the exact location. Instead of tearing up the entire slab of concrete, pavement, or asphalt where the snowmelt system exists, our experienced team uses noninvasive thermal imaging along with gas detection method technology to quickly and accurately locate the leak and site for excavation.
WHAT IS THERMAL IMAGING FOR A SNOWMELT SYSTEM?
Our thermal imaging (heat reflection) infrared technology displays heated pipes underground along with anything that seems abnormal such as leaks. These leak areas are then marked to show the exact source of the problem where digging should be completed. By precisely locating the area in question, damage to the surrounding system can be prevented and repair work minimalized. Prior to digging, a thermal imaging scan of a concealed snowmelt system prevents excess damage to the slab and pipes.
