Make a Heated Driveway Work for You

The Days of Manual Snow Removal are Over
Seriously consider a life without back breaking snow removal. Can you picture it? Are you smiling? Well, having a radiant snow melting system right outside your front door makes that snow-removal-less life possible. If you put a heated driveway to work for you, chances are you’ll enjoy winter a whole lot more.

It doesn’t take much effort or upfront cost to make a radiant heated driveway possible either. Radiant snow melting systems are a simple addition to any new driveway as they can be installed before the concrete, pavers or asphalt goes down. But if you have an existing driveway you don’t need to lose heart because heated driveways can also be retrofitted in your current asphalt or concrete driveway.

Radiant heated driveways eliminate the back breaking, hand shoveling, sweating work of manual snow removal. Heated driveway systems are fully automated, so feel free to sleep in or enjoy your morning coffee from the warmth of your living room. When temperatures are below a set point (usually 39°F) and the snow sensor (pictured right⇒) detects moisture, it signals the controller which then sends power to the heat cables, outputting a steady stream of warmth to keep your driveway clear of snow and ice. Once the snow flakes hit the warmed surface they don’t have a chance to accumulate as they melt on impact, leaving you with a heated driveway constantly clear of snow. The snow is left to accumulate where it is more appreciated, like your front yard (for optimal snowball fights and snowman building) or even your next door neighbor’s driveway.

If you’ve told your neighbors about your heated driveway and they still haven’t installed a radiant snow melting system of their own, you have every right to silently snicker at them as you watch from the warmth of your front window as they huff and puff to remove their snow by hand. If you make a heated driveway work for you, your snow removal days are over. Forever.

Outdoor Radiant Heat Systems

As radiant heated floors have gained new popularity, so too have heated driveways and radiant snow melting systems. Homeowners are discovering the advantages of automated snow melting systems and ditching their snow shovels and bags of salt. And businesses are getting in on the act too.

Radiant snow melting systems have proven to be invaluable for ramps, loading docks and pedestrian walkways. Employees can focus on their jobs instead of taking time out to shovel snow during the winter months, and liability for slips and falls on icy sidewalks is greatly diminished. The increased safety and productivity far outweigh the costs, as businesses continue to seek out radiant heat snow melting solutions.

Home settings like steps, patios or sidewalks that lead to a hot tub are popular applications for snow melting systems. Hydronic or electric snow melting systems can be installed for both heated sidewalks/driveways or heated floors. While radiant snow melting systems are typically installed in new construction applications, radiant heat can also be installed in existing driveways and sidewalks.

Using saw-cut technology, grooves can be cut into concrete or asphalt surfaces and heat cable can then be placed in the grooves. An epoxy topcoat is then applied to seal the heat cable in the grooves. A sand broadcast can be applied to the surface before the epoxy cures if you want additional traction and safety.

Heat cable can also be placed on top of an old asphalt driveway and then a new layer of asphalt is then applied on top of that and compacted. (ClearZone heat cable is designed to withstand the extreme temperature and stress of asphalt applications.)

Radiant snow melting systems can be customized and installed in countless numbers of snow melting applications. Call a Warmzone radiant heat expert to learn more today, 888.488.9276.

Save Yourself a Fall Off Your Roof; Install Heated Gutters

Heated Gutters Keep Ice and Debris Clear So You Don’t Have Too

This is a true story. When I was a girl I looked out my bedroom window one winter afternoon and found my dad lying next to an oak tree in our front yard in direct line of our roof. I opened my window to inquire about his health (mental and physical). After a moment, he groaned that he had fallen off our roof. Needless to say, the roof was not a heated roof.

Upon further investigation I saw that the gutters just outside my window had perfect hand grips pulled down where my dad had tried to catch himself as he slipped off the two story roof. Having a roof deicing system would have prevented his fall since he would never have had to be up there in the first place. The poor guy was trying to clear the gutters and roof from ice and snow when, like so many people do, he slipped and went right off to the ground below. Luckily his injuries were fairly minor, but the soreness of his body reminded him he didn’t need to do that trip to the roof again mid-winter. Installing gutter trace heat cables keeps your roof and gutters clear of slippery ice and snow and allows your feet to remain firmly planted on the ground, where they belong.

This afternoon I heard of another friend’s father falling off a ladder while attempting to gain access to his roof for the same purpose. Also a non-heated roof and also a slippery trap waiting to lure one into its clutches. His injuries were more serious than my dad’s. He sustained a head fracture as well as a broken back. Having a heated roof is not only convenient it’s also much, much safer. I’m sure we all have horror stories of being on the roof, either personally or someone close to us. Be safe, make the smart homeowner’s choice and put a roof deicing system in place and enjoy the safety of a heated roof and gutter trace system.

Heated Sidewalks is a Smart Business Choice

Cut Snow Removal Labor Costs and Increase Pedestrian Safety with Radiant Heat

Most of us may associate a radiant snow melting system with a heated driveway. Why not apply the same smart technology that comes in a snowmelt system, to a sidewalk? Pedestrian safety is key when running a business or taking care of public buildings such as schools or libraries. Using a radiant snow melting system underneath a sidewalk would be a significant perk to any existing or new project where pedestrian traffic is being taken into account. Having walks clear of snow at all times would increase traffic and safety.

Radiant snow melting systems are relatively affordable and save you in the long run when it comes to snow removal cost and headaches. The fully automated snow melting systems are simple to maintain because they require no human intervention. They do however come with a manual override should you ever need to melt a snow drift that collected on your driveway or ice that formed in some shade.

Radiant snow melting systems utilize radiant heat beneath the concrete or asphalt to help keep walks clear of snow and ice. This makes walking much safer for pedestrians in cold climates. Each snow melting system can be customized to meet your specific project needs and they fit in uniquely shaped areas as well. Using a snow melting system anywhere there are pedestrians is a sure way to keep everyone safe and dry

The Snow. The Heated Driveway. The Melting.

Radiant Heated Driveways Make Snow Removal So Simple

Every day it snows millions of us curse its accumulation. We point our fist to the sky, shaking it with fury and scream WHY? ENOUGH ALREADY! MAKE IT STOP!!! It’s not that we don’t enjoy the beauty of snow or the extremely fun winter sports that it allows, it’s just that, well, we’re sick to death of shoveling, snow plowing, slipping, sliding, falling, and wishing it would just melt on its own. The oversimplification of snow removal is possible. First you get the snow, then the heated driveway , and then oh heavenly day, the melting. Once a radiant heated driveway is installed the hard work is over.

It does sound simple. Maybe a little too simple, but the beauty of it is that it’s real and exists. A heated driveway takes the once burdensome snow and makes it pretty again. You can sit back and watch it fall without a single curse word uttered or fist shaking. A radiant heated driveway does all the work for you.

These fully automated systems activate when temperatures reach a certain set point and precipitation is detected. There’s no labor involved. The systems also feature manual override capability in case you want to turn on the heated driveway to melt a snow drift or if some ice somehow formed in the shade. All in all, these heated driveway systems couldn’t be easier or more reliable

Are you Ready for a Heat Wave in Winter?

Radiant Heated Floors Mean You Enjoy Heat Year Round

About this time of year, we all start getting twitchy about the cold. The charm of white snowy fields twinkling in the afternoon sun, or snowmen in our neighbor’s yards is starting to wear thin. Sunshine and sand start to seem like a valid prescription from your physician. Sigh. Most of us still have a few months more to endure winter’s icy kiss.

After all, you have heated floors now. Can’t you just see yourself smiling about that fact?
