Heat Trace Solutions

Winter may be coming to a close, but spring is a great time to offer heating solutions to customers to help them prepare for the upcoming year. Areas that can freeze or become problematic in the winter; such as pipes or roofs, are great areas to install heating systems that aren’t always easily accessed in snowy, cold weather. Installing a heat trace system in the spring can prevent heavy snow and low temperatures from causing roof leaks, destroying gutters or downspouts, and freezing pipes. At ProLine, top-of-the-line roof heating and pipe tracing systems are available for residential homes, commercial buildings, and even industrial applications, allowing contractors to offer a wide range of services for their clients.

Roof heating applications are easy to install customize for any home or business application. Each roof heating system generally consists of heat cable, a thermostat, and a sensor or activation device. The activation device will trigger the system when the temperature is below the set point. ProLine carries a wide range of durable heat cable that is designed for a variety of heat trace applications. It can be installed on roof valleys, gutters, trouble spots, or even downspouts and drainpipes, making it easy to prevent roof leaks or more costly and hazardous damage.

ProLine’s industry leading heat cable is self-regulated, meaning that the cable’s irradiated conductive core increases the heat output as the outside temperature falls and decreases the heat output as the temperature rises. The radiant heat cable is made from high quality, advanced components, and is one of the most popular heat trace solutions today. The cable is UL recognized and meets the requirements of Section 426 of the NEC (National Electric Code). The outer jacket of the cable is a fluoropolymer, making it durable and rugged, ensuring it will last the harshest of winters. The interior of the cable consists of a tinned copper braid, thermoplastic elastomer insulation, and a metal ground band. This interior construction will help assure reliable, energy efficient performance in any home or business.

Another common application for heat trace cable is pipe freeze prevention or industrial process control and temperature maintenance. Whether in residential homes or commercial settings, pipes can freeze, resulting in extensive cleanup and costly water damage. Pipe tracing for freeze prevention is way to ensure that your customers have a hassle free winter. Pipe tracing also utilizes self-regulating cable that has a parallel circuit, but does not necessarily require a thermostat. ProLine’s self-regulating pipe tracing cable is UL listed and provides an ideal way to protect pipes, valves, or other troublesome areas from freezing. This cable automatically varies power output in response to changes in temperature, making it extremely energy efficient and ideal for small plastic or metal pipes, or instrument tubing for commercial or residential applications.

Heating Floors – The Right Way

Hardwood floors are an upgrade that many homeowners are eager to install in their new or existing homes. Heated flooring is the perfect on-trend upgrade to offer to your customers with their new hardwood flooring. Installing radiant heated floors under hardwood is just as simple as with any other flooring, and can give your business the edge over a competitor. At ProLine, contractors have access to industry leading heated floor systems that can add value to your business and attract new customers.

When choosing a heated floor system to pair with hardwood flooring, there are a few things to consider. While most radiant heat systems are compatible with hardwood flooring, there are a few specifics that can make pairing radiant heat and hardwood flooring easier. When advising clients about heating hardwood floors with radiant heat, be aware that certain woods such as cherry, walnut, and mesquite are better suited for radiant heat. Other good options include floating floors, engineered wood flooring, and laminates. Strip flooring is also preferable to plank when working with radiant heat, as strips will contract less than larger planks. But radiant heat from ProLine is designed for safe use under just about any type of floor.

Heated hardwood floor

ProLine has offerings for contractors looking to help customers pick the perfect system for their new flooring. ProLine’s floor heating cable, also known as TileHeat, is one of the most versatile and reliable systems available. As ProLine’s most popular floor heating solution, TileHeat is commonly installed to heat tile floors, laminates, marble, carpet, hardwood, and more. The thin, twin conductor cable features a single point connection and is insulated with Fluoropolymer, with high temperature PVC on the outside. It is rated at 120 or 240 volts and has ground fault protection (GFCI) and carries a generous 25-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The cable is available off the spool or in mats for easy “roll-out” installation. The mats feature cable that is pre-spaced and secured on a flexible mesh with an adhesive backing, so they can be easily rolled out and secured to the subflooring. Turns can be made with these mats by cutting the mesh backing, but installers must be sure to avoid cutting the heat cable. TileHeat mats are available in various lengths and heat an area 24 inches wide. The system provides a great way to add value to your business by providing an energy efficient way to heat their home.

ProLine also offers an innovative polypropylene uncoupling and waterproofing system for heating floors and other surfaces without movement or expansion joints in the screed. The membrane is simply laid out into the subfloor, and TileHeat heating cable is installed into the channels of the membrane, providing perfect spacing and protecting it from water or other damage. The Prodeso membrane also helps prevent movement or expansion of joints in the screed, making it a great installation choice for any flooring.

ProLine also carries thin heating panels designed especially for heating floating floors. The “film” heating element is only .016-inch thick and efficiently heats your floors without causing any floor buildup. When installing the system, the heating panels are cut to their proper length on site, and then installed on the subfloor. After the FilmHeat heating elements are secured, the electrical connections are then made and the laminate floor is installed directly over the panels. There’s no need for alarms, special tools or self-leveling compounds.

TileHeat systems consist of heating cable (or mats), and a thermostat. TileHeat heating cable has top of the line components- it is a single point connection, twin conductor cable insulated with Fluoropolymer on the inside, and high temperature PVC on the outside. It is rated at 120 or 240 volts and has ground fault protection (GFCI).  This great cable also comes with a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty to assure against any manufacturing defects. This cable is also safety approved for wet locations, making it a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms. Cable comes on large spools ready for installation. The cable itself is a great way to heat oddly shaped rooms where FoilHeat or other heating options may not be flexible enough. All adjustments can be made on site, including coverage and cable spacing.

For larger areas, TileHeat heating cable also comes in mats. These mats have TileHeat heating cable pre-spaced on an adhesive backed fiberglass mesh. This makes for quick and easy installation, mats are simply rolled out and secured to the subflooring. Turns can be made with these mats by cutting the mesh backing, but installers must be sure to avoid cutting the heat cable.  Heating mats make installation super-efficient and saves contractors time and money. TileHeat mats are available in various lengths and are 24 inches wide. TileHeat is one of industry’s most trusted and effective floor heating systems available, and features rapid response times. All these factors make TileHeat a great way to add value to your business by providing an energy efficient way to heat their home.

If installing heating cable in areas that are more likely to be wet is a concern for your business, ProLine also offers the innovative Prodeso waterproofing system. The Prodeso membrane is a waterproofing membrane that offers polypropylene uncoupling and crack isolation. This membrane is simply laid out into the subfloor, and TileHeat heating cable is installed into the channels of the membrane, protecting it from water or other damage. The Prodeso membrane also helps prevent movement or expansion of joints in the screed, making it a great installation choice for any flooring.

Quality Components and Service you can Trust

Snow melting systems are great for contractors looking to expand their business and add a new level of convenience for their customers. But adding a new service offering and learning to install it can be overwhelming. With ProLine Radiant’s top-of-the-line components and free installation training and technical support, providing snow melting systems for your customers is easy.

Snow melting systems from ProLine are professionally designed by an in-house team of designers, and a detailed layout of each system is provided for contractors to assure components are installed correctly. These layouts also contain all the needed electrical information for your installer as well, including, proper load calculations, breaker sizes, number of breakers, etc. Proper installation of a snow melting system is key for a reliable, efficient system, which is why ProLine offers such robust customer support services.

It’s also important to use reputable, quality components. Installing a snow melting system begins with three main components; the heating element, and activation device, and a control unit/contactor panel. At ProLine, the heating element for snow melting systems is a heavy duty, high-quality cable designed to produce 30-50 watts per square foot. ProLine heat cable is one of the most trusted and efficient in the industry. ProLine twin conductor heat cable features single-point connection, and is rated at 220°F for easy installation in almost any medium, from pavers to concrete and asphalt.

For hot asphalt applications, ProLine offers a special version of cable that is rated at 460°F for up to 10 minutes. ProLine’s UL listed heat cable has a copper metal sheath, and uses a polyolefin jacketing for rugged durability, UV protection and flexibility.

ProLine heat cable comes on spools ready for installation, or pre-spaced in mats. These mats are available with 3 and 4 inch cable spacing and heat a 2-foot wide area. ProLine radiant heating mats simplify installation, and are ideal for heating standard shaped areas that may need less customization. The tape backing of the mats can be cut to facilitate turns and layout in custom shaped areas. (Note: Never cut the actual heating cable.) Mats are easily rolled out over the area to be heated, making installation quick and easy. The snow melting mats are a durable, versatile choice, and are especially popular for large applications.

Next, a snow melting system must have an activation device. These advanced snow sensors detect temperature and precipitation. When the temperature hits a certain point (usually set at 39°F) and precipitation is also detected, the sensor signals the contactor panel, which sends power to the heating cable. ProLine has state-of-the-art sensors, and both in-ground and aerial-mount sensors are available for commercial and residential applications. ProLine’s aerial-mount sensor allows for automatic activation and manual override capability for times if the system needs to be activated to melt a snow drift or when a patch of ice has formed. This sensor can be upgraded for remote activation and is compatible with smart systems.

Finally, a snow melting system must have a contactor panel or control unit. This component sends power to the embedded heating element after it receives a signal from the sensor. When installing a snow melting system, the aerial sensor utilizes a contactor panel. At ProLine, contactor panels are available with or without ground fault equipment protection (GFEP). This option can save contractors a great deal of time and money.

In-ground sensors differ from aerial sensors as they rely on a control unit instead of a contactor panel. ProLine systems use a NEMA 1 control unit that is compact and easy to use. These units can be operated from an external signal and be switched on/off or even to standby. ProLine’s control unit not only has advanced technology, but a great price not found at competitors. Control units are energy efficient and allow for sidewalks, driveways, or any outdoor area to be snow free.

ProLine snow melting systems are versatile enough to be installed in almost any application, ranging from residential driveways to large commercial applications such as parking lots, loading docks, runaway truck ramps, public transit platforms, and so on.

ProLine’s trusted systems and low pricing also come with industry leading customer services, including, free installation training, technical support and professional system design. These services are geared to make it easy for contractors to expand their businesses by providing radiant heat to their customers.

ProLine’s dedicated customer service professionals are available to help you with every aspect of the installation. Design and engineering specialists will work with you to create the most efficient system and provide you with and accurate layout that includes all the electrical information. This serves as the road map for your installer and electrician, and helps to ensure a successful installation.

The installation training can be completed online with an instructor at your convenience. If you ever have a question, installation support professionals are available over the phone to assist you during installation if you need. ProLine’s customer service is with you throughout the installation process. When looking to give your customers the efficient option of radiant heat, ProLine is truly the best choice for contractors. For more information, call 866.676.9276.

Expanding Business Through Radiant Heat

A new year means new opportunities to grow your business, and adding a new resource can set you apart from the competition and make 2020 your best year yet. Radiant heated floors are an innovative addition for any contractor or professional to add to their list of offered services. Not only are heated floors an efficient way to heat any home or business, but they add a level of luxury any commercial or residential consumer will enjoy.

As a leading provider of radiant heat solutions, ProLine offers one of the largest selections of radiant floor heating systems around, and that vast selection is backed by unparalleled customer support services, including professional system design, free installation training, and installation support. With its vast product selection and industry leading customer services, ProLine has earned its place among construction professionals as the trusted radiant heat leader.

As business grows increasingly more competitive, many contractors are looking for ways to grow their business. Many have enhanced their bottom line by working with ProLine to offer radiant heat installations. ProLine takes care of the legwork by providing technical support for the installer as well as free installation training. ProLine’s experienced staff of designers provides a detailed layout of the system that contains all the technical and electrical information necessary.

Heated floors are an amenity that do more than simply heat your feet. A radiant floor heating system warms from the floor up, allowing the whole room to be heated quickly and much more efficiently than a standard forced air system.

Floor heating systems can be electric or hydronic. Hydronic systems use a boiler to heat a specialized water mixture that is pumped through PEX tubing under the floor. ProLine electric systems are the more popular choice for most professionals, as they are more practical when it comes to use and flexible installation. The availability of different types of heating elements makes them easily customizable for any application. Adding to the efficiency, each room – or zone – is controlled by its own thermostat, giving users precise control of the heating system. Unlike forced air systems where hot air travels through a series of ductwork and escapes from closed vents, there is no wasted heat. Each room can be heated quickly, separately and efficiently.

Electric systems are maintenance free and require only three components: a thermostat, temperature sensor, and heating element. ProLine thermostats can also be programmed to warm the house according to your schedule. The activation device features programming capability for each day of the week, so you can wake up to warm floors and then the system will shut off when you leave for work – before turning on again shortly before you get home.

Consumers have the choice of installing an ambient (room temperature) sensor or a temperature sensor in the floor (or both). If installing heated flooring in multiple rooms, each zone can be controlled by its own thermostat, making each radiant heat system completely customizable and highly efficient.

The heating element is often cable, which can be purchased in lengths of a spool or pre-spaced in flexible mats. Other floor heating elements include thin mats that features pre-spaced heating cable that is sandwiched between a special foil. Low-voltage floor heating panels are also available. A special, paper-thin heating element is also available that can be installed to heat existing floors. If you have access to the floor joists, the thin film heating element can be stapled up between the joists. Batt insulation in then installed to direct all the heat upward to effectively warm the floor. This is a popular and affordable means for adding heat to your existing floors. This popular and affordable option is ideal for completing remodels, as installation of the heating element only requires access to the floor joists. The system costs little and is easy to operate, making it an excellent option for any professional looking to increase profit and set themselves apart from competitors.

The heating elements are thin heating panels available for joists that have 12, 16, or 24 inch spacing, and come on large rolls for easy lay out.  The heating panels are easily cut, stapled between the floor joists, and then connected to a power source and thermostat.

The most popular and versatile option for floor heating is ProLine’s TileHeat. The thin heat cable is available in mats or stand alone cable. TileHeat floor heating mats feature dual-conducting, pre-terminated heat cable that is pre-spaced and attached to an adhesive-backed fiberglass mesh. The mats heat an area 24 inches wide, are quick and simple to install and can be used with 120 or 240 volts. After they are rolled out, the mesh backing can be cut (avoid cutting the heat cable) to make turns and accommodate any layout.

TileHeat stand alone cable features the same quality cable, but can be more easily installed in small, custom shaped areas. This cable is also easy to work with, as any changes to cable spacing or coverage can be made on site. TileHeat cable comes with floor strapping to ensure all cables are secure and spaced appropriately. Both TileHeat is made from premium materials and provides top-of-the-line heating and quick response times.

These systems are just a few of the floor heating options that are available at ProLine to enhance your business in 2020. ProLine offers many heating options – all which include state-of-the-art components, backed by ProLine professional business services. Services include expert help with system design, technical support, and free installation training for contractors. We make it easy for you to offer radiant heat installations to your customers. Working with Proline assures that the most complete and efficient solutions are provided for any commercial, industrial or residential application.

Trusted Roof Deicing Solutions from ProLine

Winter is one of the most beautiful times of year, but heavy snow can be another time-consuming chore added to homeowners’ already lengthy list. Not only does heavy snow block driveways and walkways, but ice dams and snow buildup can be hazardous and lead to problems inside and outside of the home. A damaged roof can result in water damage, as well as mold and mildew growth inside the home.

ProLine Radiant offers efficient, easy-to-install solutions to keep residential and commercial roofs clear and safe this cold winter season. Whether you’re looking to heat the whole roof, roof edges, problem areas, or just the valleys or gutters, the versatile systems offered by ProLine are hassle free and a great investment in convenience and safety. ProLine Radiant’s most trusted roof deicing systems are self-regulated, ensuring that no overheating occurs and that each deicing system is energy efficient. ProLine roof deicing systems can be easily customized for any application, as they can be installed on new construction applications as well as remodeling projects.

Roof deicing system installed to heat roof edges.

ProLine’s low-voltage deicing system is a great option for keeping roofs snow and ice free. They can be installed under almost any roofing material, including shingles and metal. These efficient systems consist of a power unit, a heating element, and a thermostat / activation device. The heating element consists of a thin, low-voltage polymer heating panel that can be cut on site and then stapled or nailed directly to the roof for quick and easy installation. This industry leading element is also polypropylene fused to ensure it is waterproof and protected from salt and alkaline damage.

The power units for this system are transformers that use low-voltage (60v or less) power to heat individual sections. Individual control boxes monitor power output to the heating elements to ensure safe, optimum performance from your low-voltage deicing system. The final piece of the system is an activation device that uses a remote sensor to detect temperature and activate the system when it is needed. For the low-voltage roof heating system, ProLine recommends the state of the art STEP Touch Thermostat. This aesthetically pleasing unit features a user-friendly LED display with easy-to-use functions to control the system. The thermostat is battery free and stores your settings in memory in case of a power outage. The STEP low-voltage system is a thoughtfully designed system to consider when choosing a radiant heated roof deicing system for your home, but it isn’t the only one available at ProLine.

ProLine offers a variety of self-regulating heat trace cable for roof deicing as well as pipe tracing applications. PLSRL and PLSRR cables offer home and business owners a proven and affordable roof deicing solution. The cables are highly versatile, and can be installed on roofs in trouble spots such as valleys, along roof eaves, in downspouts and gutters, as well as for use in pipe tracing applications. The cables consist of 16 AWG nickel-plated copper bus wire gauge surrounded by a heavy-duty outer layer of Fluoropolymer, thermoplastic, or tinned copper braid (depending on the customer’s choice) to protect it from the harsh elements.

Self-regulating heat cable

The advanced self-regulating core allows the heat output to fall and rise, depending on the temperature changes. Built for durability and ease of use, ProLine’s roof heating options are among the industry’s best. The heat trace cable meets NEC code 426 and is UL recognized, making it reliable, safe, and economical. ProLine Radiant’s self-regulating heat trace cable is an excellent and affordable option for small or large applications, and can help protect homes from potentially costly ice dams and dangerous icicles.

Self-regulating roof heating cable

Roof deicing systems from ProLine can also be easily customized to meet your customer’s specific project needs. While both the low-voltage and the self-regulating heat trace cable are popular roof heating solutions, the two can be combined to create the perfect system for residential or commercial applications.

ProLine offers free training courses at the Salt Lake City office or the classes can be completed online with the instructor via Webex™.
