Benefits of Radiant Snow Melting Systems
ClearZone Electric Snowmelt Systems
The ClearZone radiant snow melting system from Warmzone is the premier driveway heating system. Featuring an industry leading warranty and a proven track record, the versatile ClearZone snowmelt system uses a line-voltage heating cable that is easy to install and can be used to heat driveways, sidewalks, ramps, steps, and more. The systems can be easily customized and installed in almost any type of medium and snow melting application. The radiant heating cable can withstand the stress of fresh concrete pours as well as the extreme heat associated with new asphalt installations, and meets ADA requirements.
The automated heated driveway systems operate only when necessary. Warmzone radiant heated driveways utilize an aerial or pavement mounted snow sensor that detects temperature and precipitation. When conditions warrant, the activation device (sensor) sends a signal to have power sent to the heat cable to warm the driveway. After the storm, the system shuts off automatically. The response time of electric snow melting systems is very rapid, so the surface of your heated driveway is warmed just as the first snow flake falls, preventing any snow accumulation.
When it comes to installing a heated driveway or snow melting system, you have many radiant heat options, so explore the possibilities and see what custom snowmelt system can be designed for you. Warmzone experts are happy to consult with you and help you determine the system that best suits your snow melting needs as well as your budget. In addition to the quality features of the ClearZone snow melting system, it is important to note that Warmzone also includes complete system design layout with each system.
Reasons to Invest in an Electric Snow Melting System
EASY TO INSTALL - The installation of the ClearZone snow melting system is not labor intensive. In fact, due to its simple design and single point connection (only having to connect one end of the cable because the other end is self terminated), it is installed in a fraction of the time and cost of other, more elaborate systems without sacrificing quality. The system can be installed in concrete, hot asphalt and under pavers.
TOP PERFORMANCE - The ClearZone system features a fast response time and can produce 35-50 watts per square foot. The system melts snow and ice on almost any surface quickly and effeciently.
ENHANCES SAFETY - Radiant snow melting systems dramatically enhance the safety of your property during the winter season. The automated systems help to eliminate the possibility of personal injuries (and subsequent litigation) due to slipping on dangerous ice and snow. Keep steps, entryways and parking area clear of ice and protect your family or your customers from injuries.
COMPLETE SYSTEM DESIGN LAYOUT AND ENGINEERING - Warmzone designs and engineers each system. Unlike many radiant heat providers, Warmzone includes complete radiant heat system design and engineering services with every snowmelt system sold. You'll receive a detailed layout of the system upon request, so you can expect to have all the information regarding the proper layout, materials, load calculations, breaker sizes, number of breakers, and other specs of the project prior to any installation taking place.
NO COSTLY MAINTENANCE - Many radiant heat systems available today also involve unexpected maintenance costs, leading some homeowners to feel the pangs of buyer's remorse. However, Warmzone electric snow melting systems have NO moving parts, making them reliable, easy to install, and virtually maintenance free. With Warmzone snow melting systems, there’s no need for yearly checkups or maintenance repairs.
NO MECHANICAL ROOM NEEDED - With Warmzone electric snow melting systems you do not need to dedicate space or a room in your home / garage for equipment. Unlike hydronic heating systems that require a boiler, manifold and series of pumps, the Warmzone CZ snow melting systems utilize a small UL listed wall-mounted control unit and pavement-mount or aerial-mount snow sensor. The efficient system operates silently, and is fully automated.
ENERGY EFFICIENT / MINIMAL OPERATION TIME - Warmzone's snow melting systems are among the most efficient systems available (with 99% of all energy goes to snow melting). ClearZone systems operate cleanly on renewable energy, feature very rapid response times and operate only when needed. Because of the high efficiency of Warmzone electric snowmelt systems, the job is accomplished quickly. ClearZone systems typically run about 30% less than many other radiant snow melting systems.
|8.||LOW OPERATION COSTS - Of course, operating expenses depend on local utility costs, but estimating using national utility rates, you can typically melt snow on a 300-square-foot area for around $1.52 for each continuous hour of operation. Snow melting typically only run for a few hours per snowstorm, and leave your driveway free of snow and ice.|
|9.||FULLY AUTOMATED - ClearZone snow melting systems are fully automated. The automated system features a highly advanced snow sensor, contactor panel and heating element. The snow sensor (either aerial mounted or pavement mounted) detects precipitation and temperature. If precipitation is detected and the temperature is below the set point of 39°Fahrenheit, the sensor signals the master controller to send power to the heat cable. The snow melting system's automated devices ensure that the unit operates only when needed, activating just before a storm hits and then shutting off shortly afterwards. The ClearZone snowmelt system is a proven, energy efficient system with trusted, reliable performance. The activation device also features manual override capability.|
|10.||ADDED VALUE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY - Installing a radiant heated snow melting system can extend the life of your driveway. Radiant heat eliminates the need for trucks and snow plows that scrape your driveway as well as the need for corrosive snow melting chemicals. Salt and snow melting chemicals also destroy grass and other nearby vegetation, so an environmentally friendly radiant heated driveway operating on renewable energy will help to keep your yard looking healthy, and you won’t have to worry about salt and chemical runoff from your property.|
|11.||INSTALLATION SUPPORT - Warmzone provides customer service that is second to none. In addition to providing one of the most comprehensive online radiant heat information resources and professional consulting services, Warmzone has radiant heat experts on hand to assist you during the installation process of your snow melting system. You'll receive top-notch customer service before, during, and after the sale.|
|12.||WISE INVESTMENT - Installing a radiant snow melting system is an excellent long term investment in your home. An electric snow melting system quietly and efficiently keeps your driveway and walks free of ice and snow, and increases the resale value of your property.|
