Snow Melting Control
The STEP® Touch thermostat’s snowmelt control mode provides economical control of your heated driveway, walkway or roof deicing solution.
The STEP® Touch Snowmelt mode is used when the thermostat is being used to control the STEP® Snowmelt and STEP® Deicing elements. The external temperature sensor is installed in the concrete or on the roof, and the set temperature is adjustable between 32°-41°F/0°-5°C. This value is maintained in flash memory, and will not be lost in the event of a power outage.
The display will show the external sensor measurement, and when both the UP/DOWN switches are pressed and released within 1 second, the display will show the ambient temperature for a short period. When the STEP® Touch thermostat is in Snowmelt mode, the snowflake logo on the front panel will glow blue.
