Tired of Shoveling, Plowing and Salting Snow?

Installing a Heated Driveway Makes Winter Easier to Bear

Are you among the millions out there thinking snow blows? Snow is a drag, a burden, a hazard, and a load many of us have to bear. Even though snow totally blows and every time you shovel your driveway you die a little inside, you may not know there is an affordable alternative to back-breaking snow removal – radiant heat.

A heated driveway is a snow removal treat well within reach. Driveway heating makes winter so much easier to bear, because instead of spending time and energy clearing your driveway, the fully-automated snow removal system does it for you.

Driveway heating is not a new invention but it is a new possibility for the average homeowner. Once deemed something only the uppity-ups could afford, driveway heating is showing up in new and not-so-new neighborhoods all over where the snow can be found in abundance. Radiant snow melting is accomplished by installing heat cable just beneath the surface of your driveway, connecting it to a power source, and installing a smart snow sensor that automatically detects when the system needs to power on. As long as there is snow and ice accumulating around it, the heated driveway stays clear and safe from the burden and hazards of piles of snow.

ClearZone Snow Melting Systems, Fully Automated and Easy to Install

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer and have a more conventional radiant heat project to tackle, you may want to consider a ClearZone radiant snow melting system. Available on the spool or in mats, the versatile CZ heat cable sets the benchmark for durability and performance.

Free Yourself from the Burden of Snow Removal

Winter Brings Enough Worries, Driveway Heating Can Help

Snow removal can become such a burden during a long winter. Snow blowers work overtime, your gloves stay soggy, and your goggles form ice crystals that are hard to chip free for each use. Free yourself and your loved ones from the burden of snow removal by installing a heated driveway. Radiant snow melting is an easy way to enjoy your cold snowy winters. Heated driveways do the work so you don’t have too, keeping the radiant cables warm under your driveway so the snow melts on impact and you enjoy a clear driveway even during the heaviest of storms.

Winter presents treacherous driving, skiing and sledding accidents, worries about slipping and breaking bones and plenty of other worries. If you have a heated driveway one worry you can cross off your list is snow removal. You can store your shovels and snow blowers for your neighbors to borrow in a pinch or lend them a hand if you feel sorry enough for them. Chances are they will see you sitting inside each time they shovel their own driveways and will be quick to ask you what your secret is. Heated driveways are catching on like a toasty wildfire simply because they are so convenient and affordable. And let’s face it; we could all use one less thing to worry about in this busy world.

A Memo from the Department of Missing Snow

The Heated Driveway is #1 Suspect

To: Consumers Living in Winter Riddled Areas
From: The Department of Missing Snow
Re: Reports of Clean Driveways After a Snow Storm

There have been several alarming reports trickling in from consumers living in colder states. Consumers who once donned thick layers of snow gear and carried heavy shovels or pushed cumbersome snow blowers are now stating they receive snow but it does not accumulate on their driveway. This is alarming to them, but here at the Department of Missing Snow it is second nature to provide consumers with answers to their snow problems. The heated driveway is the number one reason driveways are missing snow after a snow storm.

If you or someone you know is experiencing these ice-free mysteries consider investigating a radiant heated driveway. Radiant heating cables may be the culprit in your missing snow mystery. These radiant heat cables lie just below the surface so you may not even know they are there, but they are doing hard work and making the jobs in our department very easy. Missing snow is not a problem for everyone, so feel free to report your findings to your neighbors if they glance at your heated driveway with longing and confusion. Explain to them how having a heated driveway keeps your driveway clean and the ice build-up stays away too. Refer them to the Department of Missing Snow where experts can talk with them about creating their own case and explain to them how heated driveways will remain our number one suspect in missing snow.

The Secret of Heated Driveways is Out

Driveway Heating is More Well Known Than Ever

If you were trying to keep your driveway heating all to yourselves, convinced that no one else deserved such a luxury, then you may be interested to hear that the heated driveway secret is out. More and more homeowners are catching on to the affordable, once thought of luxury of driveway heating. It is easier and more affordable than ever to lay radiant heat cables beneath your driveways and sidewalks.

Business owners are catching the wave of heat as well. The secret has spilled into their parking lots and loading docks and even showing up on school properties across the country as well. Radiant snow melting systems are a great way to keep property clear of snow. What was once a little known system has become a staple in winter-laden homes and businesses across the states. Heated driveways are efficient and require little power to access their heating power. The warmth keeps the snow from accumulating on the pavement and snow and ice danger is minimized with the flip of a switch. The automatic snow sensor keeps tabs on the temperature and snow fall so you never have to get up in the middle of the night to turn it on. The sensor detects those things for you and turns on and off when needed or not. Share the secret that is not so secret anymore with your friends and neighbors and tell everyone about driveway heating. They’ll love you for it.

The Driveway Has Been Ice/Snow Free All Winter!

Heated driveway during installation and after

This last summer, I installed the heating cables in my driveway.  I have a North facing home and the sloped driveway does not see the sun in the winter.  This combination creates a slippery condition all winter long.  I contracted out the concrete removal and pour.  With the help of some friends, neighbors and my wife, we were able to layout all three cables in one day.  One friend, helping install the cable, jokingly said “Your daughter won’t slip on ice now, but if she touches the ground she will get burned!”  The first snow fall this winter was the test and the heated driveway has been ice/snow free all winter!  The option to manually turn on the heat system has not been needed since the sensor works so well.  My wife and I are very pleased with the results and feel much safer walking out side during the winter now!

It Won’t Break the Bank, or my Back (Shoveling)

Location: Calgary, Canada

Solution: ClearZone Heated Driveway

Heated tire tracks in driveway

This past weekend, we received over four inches of snow and temps -15 degrees C . . . That’s like Green Bay cold!

Anyway, as you can see, the heated driveway is doing its job. Just a week ago, my electrician installed the correct type of wire for the CDP 2 so everything is functional now. A lot of folks in our neighborhood stop by on their walks and have conversations about my driveway, or ask questions if I am outside.

I know that some think this would be extremely expensive to operate, but last month, with Christmas lights on every night, I saw only a $150 increase in my electrical bill. Also, we only have 2 or 3 months of significant snow in Calgary so it won’t break the bank, or my back (shoveling) and delivery people don’t have to crawl up the slope in fear of slipping!

Have a great day.

I just wanted to follow up with you to let you know we had a successful installation. Your electrical support person, Dan, was very helpful in the system test process working with my electrician. I will be completing all the warranty paperwork soon and have all of the electrical measurements captured. Here is one of the photos of the project.

Best regards,
