Hydronic Snow Melting Systems
The term “hydronic heat” means heating with hot water. Surprisingly, this method of heating has been in common use for centuries. With the advancements in technology, hydronic radiant heat systems have become more popular because of greater effectiveness, efficiency, and affordability.
Hydronic snow melting systems utilize a mixture of hot water and propylene glycol (anti-freeze) that circulates through a closed-loop flexible polymer (Pex) tubing that is installed in the pavement (concrete, asphalt, or just about any medium). The hot liquid is circulated from a centrally located water heater/boiler through the Pex tubing to warm the sidewalks or driveway.
Because this hot water and anti-freeze mix retains heat for a long time after the boiler shuts down, the hydronic heating system reduces energy use, adding to its efficiency and making it environmentally friendly. Warmzone systems also feature highly efficient condensing boilers with an Energy Star Rating as well as industry leading pumps, valves and tubing. The condensing boiler (water heater) can be powered by any energy source, including natural gas, electricity, oil, wood, or even solar collectors.
Hydronic snow melting systems from Warmzone feature the highest quality components and are fully automated. An aerial or pavement mounted snow sensor detects precipitation and temperature conditions to activate the snow melting system only when it is needed.
Warmzone also provides a comprehensive, engineered drawing of your system – prior to installation – to ensure that you not only receive the highest quality products, but that your system is designed to be the most efficient snow melting system that satisfies all of your custom demands.
