Heated driveways and snowmelt systems provide long term, maintenance-free snow
removal at an affordable price. The energy-efficient snow melting systems can be
utilized for small, custom residential properties as well as large commercial
construction projects. Electric snow melting systems utilizing Warmzone heat
cable offer significant advantages over other snow melting systems. Because of
the ClearZone cable's rugged design, it is a commonly used heat cable
among construction professionals.
|PERFORMANCE – The ClearZone radiant
heating system can heat up 30 percent faster than other snowmelt systems, giving the system a
shorter operation time to achieve snow removal. It produces only 35-50 watts per square foot,
making it affordable to operate during all of winter's heaviest snowstorms.
|ENERGY EFFICIENT – Many systems are inefficient because much of the energy consumed
escapes into the ground below the driveway. Approximately 99 percent of all energy consumed
by the ClearZone driveway heating systems goes into snow melting. Less efficient hydronic
systems have slow response times and significant heat loss while the water makes its way
through the maze of tubing.
|LOW OPERATION COSTS – On average, a heated driveway with an area of 300-square
feet operates for about $1.50 per continuous hour of operation. Snow melting usually
only takes just a few hours per storm. (Calculate
your heated driveway operational costs.)
|EASY AND INEXPENSIVE TO INSTALL – The ClearZone snowmelt system is easy to
install. The system has a user friendly design and single-point connection (only having to
connect one end of the cable, and the other end is self terminated). Installation takes only a
fraction of the time and cost of installing compared to hydronic heated driveway systems, and typically
provides superior performance.
SAFETY – Heavy snows and ice create dangerous conditions
for you and your family. The Warmzone driveway heating system protects pedestrians from slipping
on dangerous snow and ice and eliminates the physical strain of removing snow by hand. Also, protect
your home or business from injuries (and potential law suits) resulting from slipping on
black ice that lurks on steps, walkways and driveways.
|MAINTENANCE FREE – Many systems have moving parts, which raises the maintenance
costs and the chance of system failure. Warmzone sells snow melting systems that have NO moving
parts, which makes them reliable and virtually maintenance free. And the systems use one of the most
reliable, durable heat cables on the market. There is no need for yearly checkups or common
repairs, and you can rest assured that your radiant system will be ready to use each winter.
FULLY AUTOMATED – The ClearZone radiant heating systems come standard with 100-percent
automated devices. Snow sensors detect precipitation and temperature to activate the
system only when needed. These automated devices detect moisture in the air coupled with
low temperatures and turn the system on just before a snow storm hits for maximum
|PROTECTS & EXTENDS THE LIFESPAN OF YOUR DRIVEWAY – Installing a radiant heated
driveway/snow melting system can extend the lifespan of your concrete / asphalt driveway.
An electric radiant heated driveway eliminates the need for salt and harsh snowmelt
chemicals. After time, these chemicals typically cause corrosion damage to your driveway,
and further damage can result from occasional use of snow plows.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – Electric radiant heating systems are "green products"
(or eco-friendly), meaning that the snowmelt systems utilize "renewable" energy
rather than fossil fuels, without harm to the environment. Additionally, radiant
driveway heating eliminates the need for salt and snowmelt chemicals, which
inevitably drains or splashes onto neighboring plants and grass, causing damage
to the surrounding vegetation and even killing some of the landscaping. Electric
radiant heated driveways are clean, silent, eco-friendly and energy efficient.
|WISE INVESTMENT – Installing a quality radiant heated driveway is an excellent
investment for raising the value of your property. By installing a radiant snow melting
system you not only increase your comfort level, but you can increase the resale value
of your home as well.
