Scientists Predict Extreme Winters to Continue for the Next 30 Years
Climatologist John Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, believes that we’re in for decades of unusually cold winters with greater snowfall. And Casey isn’t alone in his claims. Noted Russian astrophysicist Habibullo I. Abdussamatov has even gone so far as to argue that a new mini-ice age has just begun.
While Casey isn’t proclaiming the dawning of a new ice age, he does say that the facts indicate we are entering a new cold era. In a recent interview with Newsmax, Casey declared, “All you have to do is trust natural cycles and follow the facts, and that leads you to the inevitable conclusion that the sun controls the climate, and that a new cold era has begun.”
According to weather experts, a decline in solar activity has kick-started a major alteration in global climate that is projected to last at least 30 years. The prospect of frigid winters with record snowfall for the next several decades is not a pleasant one, but there are steps one can take to ease the pain of the upcoming “mega winters”.
Installing an automated snow melting system can ease the burden considerably, and even save you money in the long run. Warmzone offers affordable snow and ice melting options designed to keep your driveway, sidewalks, steps, and roofs clear of ice and snow – eliminating the need for manual snow removal. Every snowmelt system utilizes industry leading ClearZone heat cable that is easy to install and can be used in almost every type of snow melting application. Available on spools or in mats with tape backing for easy roll-out installation. (There is no mesh backing to impede concrete pours, making Warmzone solutions the optimum choice when it comes to installing radiant heat in concrete projects.) Self-regulating heat cable and RoofHeat STEP systems are used for roof deicing.
Why Invest in a Warmzone Snow Melting System?
Fully Automated: You’ll get a fully automated snow removal solution that can sense and respond to snow before it can accumulate. ClearZone systems are activated by aerial- or pavement-mounted snow sensors that signal a small wall-mounted control unit to activate the system when needed. Each system also features a manual on/off switch to deal with snowdrifts or ice that has formed in shade.
Enhances Safety: Radiant heat systems offer instant, consistent protection from slips and falls caused by icy steps, walkways and driveways.
Easy to Customize: Warmzone snow melting systems are easy to customize, so you can install a system that meets your specific snowmelt needs as well as your budget. Check out some of the snow melting options.
Energy Efficient: Minimal operation times and low operating costs will save you money and time over the life of your system.
Maintenance Free: These systems are virtually maintenance free, and backed by one of the best warranties in the business, for years of confident operation.

The Advantages of Warmzone Snow Melting Mats
The Tape Backing of ClearZone Mats Facilitates Proper Concrete Pours
Radiant heated driveways offer many benefits; however, a snow melting system is the sum of its parts and only as good as its design and installation. While there are many products available, Warmzone systems have proven to be the clear favorites among professional installers. These tried and tested solutions are carefully considered by Warmzone “resident” professionals with deep industry knowledge and experience. What does this mean for you? When dealing with Warmzone, you have a wide selection of affordable products that outperform the competition in all phases of installation and performance.
Consider a recent conversation between a Warmzone professional and an experienced installer. The installer preferred to avoid using electric snow melting mats based on an experience with a competitor’s heating mats years earlier. During the concrete installation, he noticed a significant issue. The mesh backing on the competitor’s mats impeded the concrete pour, which dramatically affected the quality of the concrete installation. When the concrete cannot flow through the mats, small air pockets can result, resulting in a weakened driveway that is susceptible to cracking and collapsing.
For the installer’s next radiant heat install, he opted for heat cable off the spool to ensure a proper concrete pour. As effective as the cable can be, cable off the spool requires more installation time, as the cable must be secured to the remesh with zip ties every 6 to 12 inches.
Shortly after that installation, the installer made a business-boosting discovery. After expressing his concerns with Warmzone, the installer learned that Warmzone snow melting mats offer significant advantages over similar products. Because of the unique construction of Warmzone snow melting mats, concrete maintains its integrity by enjoying an unimpeded pour. Not only is Warmzone heat cable the premier heating cable on the market, but the mats have become the solution of choice for concrete installers.
When it comes to performance and durability, the spacing between the runs of cable, tape and mesh backing truly matter. Warmzone’s ClearZone radiant snow melting mats utilize tape (without a mesh backing) to properly maintain their overall integrity during installation. Because ClearZone mats don’t include a mesh backing, concrete can flow through the mats during a fresh concrete pour, ensuring a strong driveway that will not buckle or cave over time, while enjoying superior performance characteristics.
The ClearZone snowmelt system is an industry leader, and the premier snow and ice melting solution for both commercial and residential applications. ClearZone electric snow melting cable is extremely durable and versatile, and can be used for a variety of residential and commercial applications, from fresh concrete pours, to installation under hot asphalt and stone pavers. On the spool, ClearZone cable allows for greater flexibility in terms of custom layouts, including hard-to-reach, intricate configurations for steps and sidewalks.
Whether you’re embarking on a radiant heat project yourself, or you’ve enlisted the assistance of a contractor yourself, you’d be wise to enlist the help of Warmzone. Warmzone provides professional system design/layout, so you know all the power requirements and technical specs before a foot of cable is installed. You’ll also have access to free installation support from an experienced pro. For more information about Warmzone’s products and services, call 888.488.9276.
