How do our products work on your home?
A commercial grade self-regulating heat cable is channeled into an extruded aluminum base panel which is designed for maximum heat transfer. Each base panel is clad with .040 pre-finished aluminum (Firestone UnaClad - in a variety of stock and special order colors or real copper) to best compliment the colors of your home.
When mounted to your roof eaves and/or valleys, our systems are designed to eliminate ice dams and snow build up in those areas, keeping your home safer and reducing risk of winter damage to your roof, home's interior and surrounding property.
Self Regulating Heating Cables for Roof Ice Dam Prevention
For some customers, a self regulating heat cable in the gutter and downspout is all that is needed. These roof heat cables control their own temperature or 'self regulate' through the core which adjusts the electrical flow as it warms to its desired temperature. We use only top-tier commercial grade self regulating heat cables and customarily stock multiple voltage and wattage selections for quick installation. Our heat cables are CSA (C,US) and UL listed. This means peace of mind.
Self regulating heat cables for roof and gutter are more efficient that the constant wattage heat cables (thin, round heat tape) found at the hardware store - these are typically used by homeowners who are willing to replace them season after season and put up with their ineffectiveness at solving ice dam problems both in gutters and on the roof. Their lack of efficiency and zig zag installation means spending up to 70% more to operate. Think how much more it costs to run those inefficient roof heat cables, month after month, year after year. Using our Self-Regulating Heat Cables will end up costing you less in the long run.
For minor ice dam problems resulting from gutter ice build up, install our heat cable in the gutter bottom combined with an aluminum cable cover bracket for maximum heat distribution. Heat Cable Datasheet
