James, you still have unfrozen ground in November? I have a snowmobile being delivered this week.
Ground does not get frozen here until it gets ccccold! We are having September temperatures in November now. Wish I could sign up some more work to be honest with you, but mostly everyone has gone away for the season.

LED lamps do create heat, certainly enough to melt snowfall in most climates as it accumulates. My line of LED MR16 lamps ( ) operate at about 42 Degrees Celsius inside sealed fixtures. This is enough heat to melt most snowfall as it accumulates. In very heavy snow conditions the fixtures do get covered but over the course of a couple of nights operation, they melt away and continue doing their job.

Even with halogen lamps the fixtures will get completely covered in high snow load areas. It is not uncommon for us to dig out fixtures here after significant snowfall, no matter what lamps are installed.

James, thats good to know. I installed Kichler LED's on a job and I was concerned that they would not be able to melt the snow. We will see this winter.

I fell back on my teaching career for a while. I may place a postcard out there for summer installations. We'll see.
