I live in Germany and we have a lot of snow on our roofs. In my room, I have a roof window, which is tilted such that the snow just stays on top of the window and I can't open the window anymore. This is very unpleasant because even if there is sunshine outside my room stays dark.
How do I get rid of the snow? Since it is a double glass window with low pressure in between the glasses, heat transfer via convection is very bad.
I thought about buying an infrared lamp and pointing it from the inside, through the window at the snow. But I am afraid that a lot of light will be absorbed/reflected by the glass and only a tiny fraction of the emitted energy will actually melt the snow.
Anyone a good lifehack to solve this problem?
