A condensing unit curb is a device that is placed inside the curb and can collect snow, ice, or rainwater from falling on your street. The water is collected in the unit and then pushed back into a hose to be used again. You will find that these units are very effective at keeping your roads free of ice and snow. The device is designed to collect rainwater but can also be used to collect snow.
When you are first considering installing a snow-collecting unit on your curb, you should consider the number of snow storms that fall within a year. You can choose to either choose an above ground or below ground unit depending on your preference. An above ground unit will be able to collect snow from all areas of your street. Your under-curb unit will only be able to pick up water from a particular area of your curb.
After you have picked out the right unit for your area, it is time to purchase the equipment. There are many different sizes and shapes of the equipment. Before you purchase any equipment make sure you know how much water your unit is going to need. If you have an area with a high annual rainfall, you may want to invest in a larger unit than if you have a drier area. Once you have purchased your equipment, you will find that you do not have to worry about your driveway looking like a desert after a long snowfall.
