Popular Radiant Heat Snow Melting Options
Whether you want to heat your driveway, walkways, patio and other areas to keep them free from snow and ice, or simply want a minimal radiant heating system that allows you to be able to get in and out of your driveway during heavy winter storms, there are a number of radiant snow melting solutions that will meet your specific needs.
Heat entire areas - Radiant heat can be installed to keep your entire driveway, sidewalks, and other outdoor areas completely clear of snow and ice. Snow melting systems are often installed to heat entire ramps, parking areas, bridges, sidewalks and walkways, and more.
Apply radiant heat only to trafficked areas - Heat the specific, most trafficked areas of your property, whether it's asphalt, cement or stone pavers. For example, instead of heating an entire driveway, just heat an 8-foot strip in the middle of the driveway, or the most trafficked area of a ramp or loading platform. Or heat a 3-foot center portion of sidewalks or entryways. Save money by installing radiant heat only to areas that are going to be accessed the most.
Heat small, select surface areas - Rather than installing a snowmelt system under the entire driveway surface, apply radiant heat only to minimal areas. For example, install a pair of 2-foot-wide tire tracks for your heated driveway. The best radiant heat providers will work closely with you to meet your snowmelt needs while keeping within your budget.
Small, custom sized radiant heated snowmelt systems can be installed in disability ramps, stairways, small patios, walkways, dog kennels, and more. The applications are only limited to your imagination.
Both electric and hydronic radiant heat technologies can be used for heated driveways and snowmelt systems. Both of these Warmzone systems feature the highest quality components available. Radiant heated driveways can be installed in virtually any application and customized to any unique shape, making radiant snow melting a realistic option for all consumers.

Controls and Activation Devices
Snow sensors and controllers ensure fully automated, energy-efficient snowmelt operation. The radiant heated snow melting system utilizes minimal energy, yet achieves optimal results. The driveway heating system is activated by the snow sensor only when specific weather conditions have been met. The efficient driveway heating system then shuts down when it is no longer needed.
The master control unit used for heated snowmelt systems with an in-ground snow sensor features an easy-to-use digital interface with a programmable timer and manual override capability. If you choose, you can activate the system for an allotted time and then shut it off after the time expires. The manual mode is particularly useful for times if you need to melt snowdrifts or ice as a result of winds and shade.
The heated driveway system remains off unless it is manually activated or triggered by the snow sensor. The "sensor plate" will signal the master control unit when it detects precipitation and temperatures are below a set point (usually 39 degrees Fahrenheit). The master control unit is designed to accommodate extension units for larger job, making automated snow removal possible for virtually any sized job.
