The DiversiTech Heat Pump Pad is designed to reduce the time, hassle and cost associated with elevating equipment above snow and ice. DiversiTech officials say the product’s patented “star” design lifts equipment a minimum of 8 inches above grade -the same height as a 2-inch pad with 6-inch risers. Plus, each pad ships with eight anti-vibration pads included for quieter operation. The company also says that when the pad is placed level, its angled base automatically drains condensate and melted snow without the contractor having to angle the pad. The built-in risers guarantee stable installation. In addition, the thin base of the Heat Pump Pad allows for a snug fit over an existing pad.
