As a leading wholesale provider of radiant heat solutions, ProLine Radiant is focused on helping contractors and professional builders overcome the supply shortages and inflation facing the industry today. Some may insist that this is the “new normal”, but ProLine doesn’t adhere to this line of thinking. Call us old fashioned, but we still believe in delivering products in a timely, affordable manner. Receiving the goods that you need, when you need, without paying more than you need doesn’t have to be relegated to memories of the good ol’ days.

We’re all feeling the effects of inflation and longer wait times in our daily lives, but ProLine is leveraging its resources to minimize the inconvenience for its customers. By utilizing its large inventory warehouses, ProLine is able to keep an abundant supply of its most popular products on hand.

Having the resources allows ProLine to continue to manufacture and maintain an abundance of its most popular products for wholesale suppliers – which ultimately saves time and money for the consumer.

ProLine designers have experience designing systems for a variety of commercial and residential applications.

ProLine roof de-icing systems are also available, and can be tailored to any configuration needed by the customer. Low-voltage heating panels can be installed discreetly under roof shingles (or metal roofs), while self-regulating heat trace cable can also be installed along roof edges, valleys, gutters and downspouts.

Industry Leading Radiant Heat Solutions

Technology continues to change our world on a daily basis. Some new technologies are being fine tuned to accommodate our needs while others have already established themselves as winners that have won their way into our daily lives. One such refined technology that continues to be adopted across the globe is radiant heat.

Radiant floor heating systems offer the most efficient means for heating homes today. Another popular application for radiant heat is for exterior snow melting applications. Heated driveways and roof de-icing systems are becoming commonplace now.

Snow Melting Systems

Maintenance Free and Fully Automated

The advanced technology and components of radiant heat make it a popular addition to new home construction projects. Radiant heated driveways are fully automated, maintenance free, versatile, and reliable. And homeowners have a variety of custom options that are available.

ProLine’s electric driveway heating systems are easily tailored to meet your customers’ specific requirements. Whether you’re faced with unique layout issues or your customer’s budget constraints, ProLine can make radiant heat a reality by working with you to custom design the system that best meets the project demands. Some typical heated driveway installations include the following configurations:

Heat the entire driveway –  Sometimes there is nothing quite like having the entire driveway surface clear and dry after a snowstorm.

Heat two tire tracks – One option to save homeowners some installation costs as well as operational costs is to design and install two 24-inch wide heated tracks. This is an especially popular solution for homeowners with long driveways and / or limited available power.

Heat an 8-foot wide strip in the middle of the driveway – Another more affordable option is to only heat the middle area, typically an 8-foot wide strip up the middle of the driveway.

Heat custom areas – For budget minded customers, heating only small sections of the driveway may be an option. For example, only install radiant heat in the driveway where it inclines, or is always shaded. This is especially convenient for driveways that descend to a busy road.

The Advantages of Spring Installations

Spring is the perfect time to give any business a much-needed boost after long, slow winters. Radiant heat is the perfect offering to help customers prepare for the coming winter while beating the summer rush. All contractors know that summer will be busy, and it can be tough to schedule customers exactly when they want. ProLine is here to help make spring a successful and busy season with a lineup of radiant heat products that are beneficial all year round. From radiant heated floors and driveways to roof de-icing and pipe trace systems, ProLine has whatever you need to increase your business this spring.

While a snow melting system may not be the first thing you think of when spring is beginning to bloom, installing one of these systems can help customers prepare for the upcoming winter. Snow melting systems are very versatile and can be installed under almost any medium. Concrete, pavers, or even asphalt can remain clear of hazardous snow and ice with a snow melting system from ProLine. These systems are commonly installed in residential and commercial settings. Radiant heat can be installed in driveways, sidewalks, steps, or even loading docks, and ramps.

ProLine’s snow melting systems are rugged, easy to customize, maintenance-free, and easy to install. The systems are also fully automated, and efficiently operate only when needed. Home and business owners will no longer have to worry about liability issues or shoveling snow when big storms hit.

Preparing for winter also means protecting the often overlooked roof. Businesses can offer customers self-regulating heat trace cable from ProLine for heating gutters, downspouts, and roof edges. This durable, versatile cable can prevent snow and ice buildup, and help to protect structures from ice dams and heavy ice damage. Ice dams can cause leakage, which can even lead to mold and mildew inside the home. Informing customers about these hazards this spring can help prevent costly home damage later in the year. Heat trace cable is also great for commercial or industrial customers looking to keep pipes safe during the cold winter.

Perhaps the most popular roof de-icing solution is ProLine’s low-voltage STEP system. This roof heating system features thin, self-regulating polymer heating panels. The panels are easily installed under shingles, and even metal roofs. They can be nailed or stapled through on-site. For custom solutions, ProLine roof de-icing products can be combined to create the ideal system for each of your customer’s needs.

Another option for early spring installation is a floor heating system. ProLine offers a vast selection of radiant floor heating systems. Heated floors provide the most energy efficient technology today. Radiant heating systems are an amenity that can be utilized all year. Whether it’s getting cozy from an icy winter storm or adding a little warmth on a cool spring morning, heated floors provide comfort all year round. Floor heating systems offer an ideal solution for heating basements, where it always seems to be just a bit cooler.

Radiant floor heating systems offer several benefits. Allergens and pollens run high this time of year, causing discomfort and health issues. Radiant heat systems don’t blow dust and allergens from the vents throughout the home like traditional forced-air systems. This can be especially helpful for children and the elderly, and customers who struggle with respiratory issues.

ProLine offers a vast selection of floor heating systems to fit any need or budget. One of the most popular products on the market is ProLine’s radiant floor heating cable. This versatile cable is available in spools and mats. It also comes with a 25-year warranty and is approved for wet locations. Mats are easy to layout, and spooled cable is often the best choice for oddly shaped or small areas, like bathrooms. ProLine has options available for almost any type of flooring. This includes products that can be installed under the existing flooring. Whatever your radiant heat needs may be, ProLine is here for you.

Take advantage of the spring season and grow your business by offering radiant heat solutions. Not only will you have more time for your customers than during the busy summer season, you may also be eligible to receive early-season discounts from ProLine. Choosing ProLine for your business also means taking advantage of the top-notch customer service that comes with every product. Free installation training is provided via video conference to ensure you are ready for each project, and professional designers will custom design every system. Help from a ProLine specialist is also available throughout the installation to make sure you are comfortable and that every project goes off without a hitch. Our goal is to ensure that you have everything you need to successfully complete the installation. Distinguish yourself from the competition this spring by choosing ProLine Radiant. If you’re ready to spring your business forward with ProLine, call and speak with a radiant heat expert today at 866-676-9276.

Make Radiant Heat Installations Easy

Winter can pose some unique challenges for home and business owners. For businesses, the weather can often impact the bottom line, and is especially impactful to retail storefronts that are dependent on customers visiting their facilities. Keeping businesses that are reliant on physical foot traffic safe and inviting isn’t always easy during the snow season.

While many businesses continue to rely on snow removal services, or tasking employees to clear sidewalks and parking areas of snow, more and more business owners are turning to reliable radiant heat systems to keep winters profitable.

Radiant snow melting systems are fully automated, so when a storm hits, the system activates to prevent the buildup of snow and ice. After the storm, the system remains on for a short time to dry the surface to eliminate surface water from refreezing into thin sheets of “black” ice. These electric systems are also maintenance free, so once the system is installed, business owners can focus on what they do best – without having to worry if the plowing service is on time or their employees are salting and keeping the walks clear throughout the day.

ProLine snow melting systems can be installed under pavers, or in concrete or asphalt.

As the demand for radiant heat increases, installers are looking for providers that go the extra mile. In addition to offering top quality products and affordable pricing, contractors want to work with professionals that make their installations as seamless and easy as possible.

For many, ProLine Radiant has become the provider of choice – for both residential and commercial radiant heat installations.

Each ProLine radiant heat system is custom designed according to ASHRAE standards. ProLine’s professional design staff works closely with the customer, the electrician, and installers to design a custom system to best meet each project’s specific demands. The design team creates a detailed CAD drawing that includes the proper layout and materials, proper load calculations, breaker sizes, number of breakers, etc. The installer will know all the details and layout of the system prior to one foot of heat cable being installed.

In addition to the detailed custom layout of each system, ProLine also provides free installation training for installers. This important service helps to ensure that there are no surprises during the installation, and gives installers the confidence they need to properly install the system in a timely manner. The courses can be completed online via web conference, and the trainee can stop and ask the instructor questions at any time. The installation training is often referred to as the most valued service by construction professionals.

Despite the thorough training, installers still may encounter an unforeseen issue during the installation. If so, ProLine experts are available to call and talk with. We’re happy to assist with any questions during the installation.

While some homeowners view the installation of a heated driveway as an added safety feature and convenience that eliminates the need for manual snow removal, other home and business owners look at an automated snow melting system as more of a necessity. Driveways built on inclines and in areas that are frequently shaded can produce hazardous (icy) conditions. For homeowners the added safety of a radiant heated driveway is crucial.

Businesses are particularly attracted to automated snow melting systems because of the round-the-clock safety they can provide. Needless to say, businesses cannot afford to have their customers negotiate icy sidewalks on their premises, so rather than paying employees to periodically shovel and salt walkways and parking areas, an automated snow melting system ensures that the walks are clear when the business opens in the morning – or during a snowstorm.

ProLine Radiant has the trusted heat cable that can be installed in concrete, under pavers, and even in hot asphalt applications. ProLine products have withstood the test of time, and are relied upon by businesses and homeowners throughout North America today.

Roof Deicing

ProLine also offers the most advanced and proven roof deicing and gutter heat trace systems. Several types of self-regulating heat cable are available for heating gutters and downspouts. The heat cable can also be run along the roof edge in a serpentine to help eliminate ice dams.

The advanced low-voltage roof heating system is one of the most popular roof deicing solutions. These effective systems utilize a thin, flexible polymer heating element that is installed directly under the roof shingles. (It can also be safely used to heat metal roofs.) The heating element can be stapled and nailed through, facilitating quick and easy installation. Thin strips of the heating element are also available to install in roof valleys to facilitate runoff.

ProLine is also your wholesale floor heating system provider. With several different systems available, customers are assured of finding the ideal solution for their heating needs. To speak to a floor heating expert today, call ProLine at 866.676.9276.

Boost Your Business

Let ProLine take care of the Details while you Add to your Bottom Line

Many contractors have opted to boost their bottom line by offering radiant heat installations. This includes heated driveways, roof deicing systems, heated floors and more. But the decision to install radiant heat systems shouldn’t be made lightly. After all, there are many different providers, products and services that are available. Choosing the right one can make all the difference for your business, so to find the radiant heat partner that will be best for you, consider some of these attributes.

Heated sidewalks

Established Provider: If you’re making calls and talking with various radiant heat providers, don’t be afraid to ask about their business. Have they been around longer than 12-months? Who are some of their clients? What are some of the projects they’ve been involved with?

Offerings from more than one Manufacturer: Some providers have a limited offering, so they recommend their one heating element and/or system components for every application. That is not necessarily bad – so long as their one product is a proven industry leader. But in reality, different applications sometimes require different components. Providers with several different options are more likely to recommend the solution that will best meet your customers’ specific needs.

Trusted Products: A variety of systems and components is important, but those products should be proven industry winners. Ask questions about the various options and learn about some of their specific features and why they are advantageous in some circumstances.

Complete System Design Services: This is essential. Sure, radiant heat is not difficult to install, and some installers tend to get a little over confident and assume, “how hard could it be?” True, you can go to Home Depot and buy whatever heat cable you need, but most reputable contractors avoid that mentality. A successful business is built with happy customers, and to ensure your success and your customers’ happiness, you’ll want to have the system designed by radiant heat experts who take every detail into consideration.

Let ProLine do the work for you! Seasoned pros like those at ProLine have been designing systems for years, so they know every in and out when it comes to successfully installing a radiant heat system. Before any heat cable is laid, you’ll know the proper materials and precise layout, proper load calculations, breaker sizes, number of breakers, and so on. ProLine doesn’t just sell radiant heat systems and components. We partner with professional builders and work with them to ensure that their customer is satisfied. As such, we have an ongoing relationship with contractors throughout the U.S. And because we have experience working with installers across the country, we can refer additional business to them. It’s a win-win relationship.

Free consulting without the Sales Pressure: The top providers are going to take the time necessary to answer your questions and help you understand what options are best for your application. Don’t waste time talking with those who don’t spend time listening. Early in the conversation, you’ll likely determine whether you’re dealing with a trusted professional or an opportunistic amateur.

Dedicated Support Staff (Experts on hand to Provide Technical Support): Make sure your provider also includes installation support. Nothing can be more frustrating that starting your install only to hit a snag that brings everything to a halt. As a wholesale provider, ProLine is unique in its service offerings. In addition to discounted products, we still include personal services, such as installation support. And the support isn’t simply offered by your sales rep; ProLine has a dedicated support staff that is on hand to field your call – should you need. Team up with a provider that intends to stay with you throughout the installation process. With ProLine, you’re assured of having a partner who will be there every step of the way.

Free Installation Training: In addition to the design and support services, ProLine offers free installation training courses for installers. This service may be unique among wholesale providers. In fact, ProLine’s services generally surpass all those extended by retail radiant heat providers. You’re not only getting the best prices; you’re also getting the best services.

The installation training courses can be completed in person or online with an instructor via Webex. This valuable training includes all aspects of your installation, helping to eliminate surprises and speed up the installation process. The courses usually take less than an hour, but they can save a great deal of time in the long run. A certificate is awarded to installers upon completion, and once they are certified ProLine can refer additional business their way.

Providers that don’t extend comprehensive customer support services don’t really have anything to lose. Once they sell you the components, they disappear like a thief in the night. Don’t get caught holding the short end of the stick. Radiant heat represents a significant investment, so invest with a partner you can trust.  Team up with an experienced professional that will take care of the details so you can focus on what you do best. Rest easy, knowing that we’ve got your back.
