Outdoor Heating Systems for Driveways

Warmzone® offers a variety of driveway heating and snow melting options for all types of applications, including concrete, asphalt, pavers, and more. Radiant heated driveway systems can be easily customized to meet your specific snow melting needs as well as your budget. Warmzone's expert design and layout team works closely with customers to determine the system that best meets their performance needs while keeping within their budget.

Because heated driveway systems are easy to customize, there are many options for homeowners when it comes to designing a system specific to their needs. For example, instead of heating the entire driveway, radiant heat can be installed to melt snow in a narrow strip in the center of the driveway. You can also reduce installation and operating costs by installing two 24-inch wide heated tire tracks. Or you can choose to only heat select areas, such as the incline of a driveway or outdoor steps that frequently ice over because they are in the shade. The options are virtually unlimited.

Driveways can also be retrofitted with radiant heat. Using saw-cut technology, grooves are cut into the existing concrete, and heat cable is placed in the channels. Special epoxy is then placed over the heating cable to seal the system. To heat existing asphalt driveways the cable is laid out over the area to be heated and a new layer of asphalt is applied. This is the easiest application for retrofitting a driveway with radiant heat.

Warmzone carries the highest quality heated driveway and radiant snow melting options available. The industry leading ClearZone® electric snowmelt system is commonly installed in both commercial and residential applications. From large heated driveways and parking areas to custom sized walkways, ramps and loading docks, ClearZone snow melting systems are versatile, durable, and reliable.

Warmzone Snow Melting Heat Cable

ClearZone electric snow melting cable is a proven industry leader that has been installed in a wide variety of applications throughout Northern America for almost two decades. The twin-conductor, single-point connection heat cable is available off the spool or pre-spaced in mats for simple "roll-out" installation, and carries a 10-year warranty. A specially designed version of the cable is also available for installation in hot asphalt applications.

The automated driveway heating system utilizes either an aerial-mount snow sensor or an in-ground sensor. These activation devices are designed to activate the system when conditions warrant. When the temperature is below the adjustable "set point" (usually 39°F) and precipitation is detected, the sensor signals the system controller, and power is sent to the embedded ClearZone cable to heat the driveway.
