Homes in cold environments can experience damage from snowfall and ice accumulation on rooftops. To counter that, some homes have heating elements to melt snow and ice. These elements run during the entire cold season, costing a fortune in energy consumption.
Ovyl developed a novel rooftop sensor with our client that can detect the level of frozen accumulation on a roof and turn heat elements on and off to keep the accumulation within safe limits.
The system is made to be quick and easy to install by an electrician, and to cleverly seal out moisture and dust. Made from a durable UV resistant plastic, the housings share a similar design language that ties the system together visually. Ovyl developed this product from concept through production including design, engineering, prototyping, sourcing and manufacturing.
