When Only the Best Will Do

by Steve Bench

Heatizon Systems spends a great deal of time designing, producing and selecting the best products available for its discriminating customers. As a result, “when only the best will do”, Heatizon Systems products are the ones Architects, Engineers, Contractors and Building Owners select for their projects

What does “when only the best will do” really mean to Heatizon Systems’ customers? The short answer is: Many good and wonderful things! But the most accurate answer is: great product selection, the best product quality, a competitive price, unparallel customer service before, during and after the purchase, and honesty and integrity of the distribution chain.

Great Product Selection means the right product for the project. In other words, Product Selection means the product that best satisfies the needs and requirements of the project and the customer. In order for a best product for the project to exist, more than one product must be available for the application. That is precisely why Heatizon Systems offers several different products for each application. Listed below are the applications followed by the products available from Heatizon Systems:

  • Floor Warming: Floorizwarm, Heatwave, Cozy Heat, Tuff Cable and ZMesh.
  • Snow Melting: Hott-Wire SR, Hott-Wire MI, Radiant Trak, and Tuff Cable
  • Roof Snow and Ice Melt: GutterMelt SR, GutterMelt MI, Tuff Cable in a Heatsink Kit, Tuff Cable in Invizimelt, and ZMesh.
  • Radiant Heating: Floorizwarm, Heatwave, Cozy Heat, Tuff Cable and ZMesh
  • In-Pipe Freeze Protection: In-Pipe Tuff Cable rated for potable water
  • Out-Pipe Freeze Protection: Out-Pipe SR and Out-Pipe MI
  • Temperature Maintenance: Out-Pipe SR and Out-Pipe MI

Best Product Quality requires that superior product design, finest quality raw materials and highest skilled labor are brought together in the manufacturing process. The “best of the best” and “best of the breed” describe the caliber of products that these ingredients deliver and Heatizon Systems offers to its customers. One great example of Heatizon Systems’ Best Product Quality products is Hott-Wire MI and its application into new pour Asphalt for snow melting.

Competitive Price means a lower price for goods and/or services of alike quality and performance. By offering the best product quality, Heatizon Systems’ products may not always be the lowest price option but its products will always be competitively priced. For certain any time you purchase a Heatizon Systems’ product the value you pay will be less than or equal to the value you receive.

Unparalleled Customer Service Before, During and After the Purchase demands an adequate number of friendly, helpful and knowledgeable personal are available, dedicated and responsible. Heatizon Systems has nothing more important to do than making certain that its customers are happy with its products.

Honesty and Integrity of the Distribution Chain means that the manufacturer, distributors and installer of the product are honest and open with each other as well as with the one paying the bills, the customer. No matter how great the product selection, product quality, competitive the price or terrific the customer service, without honesty and integrity there is nothing.

Ten Reasons for Heatizon Systems Tuff Cable or ZMesh

by Steven D. Bench

Wow! Ten reasons Heatizon Systems snowmelt products are the best available:

      Safety – Protect your customers, employees, friends, and family from injuries sustained from slipping on ice or snow covered driveways, sidewalks, steps, driveways, etc. In addition protect your self, your family and your employees from injuries sustained as a result of shoveling heavy snow.
    • Efficiency – Heatizon Systems products require only one energy source and are over 99% energy efficient, as a result the energy melts snow and ice rather than escaping out the exhaust vent. The fact that Heatizon System products do not require fresh air venting and operate only when needed to melt snow and ice make them even a better energy efficiency value.
    • Low Operating Expense – Since Heatizon Systems snow and ice melt products operate only when they are needed. In most locations a 285 square foot area of snow and ice melt costs less than 40 cents for every consecutive sixty minute period that they are turned on.
    • Warranty – Heatizon Systems Tuff Cable and Z Mesh heating element is backed by an industry leading 25 year limited warranty.
    • Noise Free – Heatizon Systems products are quiet.
    • Maintenance Free – Heatizon Systems products require no routine maintenance, nothing to oil, clean or certify.
    • Inexpensive to Install – The ease and simplicity of installation make Heatizon Systems products relatively inexpensive to install.
    • Automatic Activation – Heatizon Systems recommends fully automatic temperature/moisture sensors for all of its snowmelt products. Automatic temperature/moisture sensors are designed to turn the snowmelt system on whenever moisture is present and the ambient temperature drops below 38 degrees F.
    • Value – Heatizon Systems snow melts products are a great value and just might increase the life of your asphalt, concrete, or pavers.
    • Great Investment – Heatizon Systems snowmelt products are a great investment because they increase the value of your home or building yielding a nice dividend when you sell. In addition Heatizon Systems snowmelt products may reduce insurance expenses.

Line Voltage vs Tuff Cable

by Steven D. Bench

Anyone interested in snow melting, floor warming, roof de-icing and/or in-floor space heating deserves to understand the differences between the two electric technologies that compete for your business. You might say “I know the difference, one technology is low voltage and the other is a high voltage, other than that distinction, they are all the same”. But to truly appreciate the differences between these two technologies and to select the product which is best for you, I suggest that it is necessary to learn the answers to a few additional questions.

First, is the product listed by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (“NRTL”), approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, such as ETL or UL? If the answer to this question is “yes”, then the manufacturer has spent a great deal of effort, time and money testing the product to the standards appropriate for its applications. Once a product has earned the right to be listed by a NRTL, quarterly monitoring and evaluation make certain that the product is designed and manufactured in a manner consistent with its listing. If on the other hand the answer is “no the product is not listed” then it is very important that you understand why. Remember, never underestimate the possibility that it may have been tested and failed to qualify, and always understand the risks that non-listed products may pose!

Second, how do the heating elements differ? The low voltage heating element has a real advantage, because it is simplistic yet durable. The fact that the heating element is made of stranded copper wire with two protective insulators makes it very easy to repair, with readily available materials, in the event it is damaged during or after the installation process. In addition, copper wire has proven its durability and longevity

Third, how long is the heating element warranted? Most companies offer 5, 7, or 10 year warranties while a couple offer up to 25 years. Generally, the longer the warranty the better, unless the warranty is prorated. The bottom line is, if you intend to enjoy the benefits of a snow melting, floor warming, in floor space heating, or roof de-icing product for years to come, only consider products with the best warranties.
