Retiring Baby Boomers Driving Interest in Snow Melting Systems

Retiring Baby Boomers Driving Interest in Snow Melting Systems

Automated Snow Sensor
An Automated Snow Sensor can activate a snow melting system.

The population of the United States is aging. The number of individuals over 65 is on the rise, and as baby boomers begin to retire, these numbers are expected to increase dramatically. It is estimated that by 2030, this age group will make up 20% of the population.

 

Snow melting systems, such as heated driveways, sidewalks, and stairs, have risen in popularity in recent years. Contributing to this is a growing population of older individuals looking for greater convenience and reduced snow and ice related hazards.

 

As culture and healthcare evolves and retirees live independently for longer, automating snow removal can reduce the risk of slip and fall injuries. With modern technology, electric radiant heat can be activated automatically to remove snow and ice. With activation options ranging from timer switches and thermostats, to automated temperature and moisture sensors, there is a solution for any situation.

 

While it is easy to see the applications this may have at home, snow melting is also very useful for businesses and organizations seeking to protect their clientele and avoid costly lawsuits. Slip and fall injuries cost businesses millions each year. This risk can be reduced with a snow melting system.
