5 Benefits of Installing Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction System

By December 18, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

As winter approaches, it’s important to keep your gutters free of debris. Water trapped in gutters will inevitably freeze and cause problems for you down the line. With Helmet Heat®, snow melts before it can build up at your roof eaves. This allows the continuous flow of water through your gutters and downspouts. That’s superior protection for your gutters and your home as a whole.

5 Benefits Of Installing Helmet Heat Ice Reduction System

Installing Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction System boasts five benefits:

       1. It Prevents the Formation of Icicles on Your Roof

Icicles can block the flow of water and their weight can damage your gutters. Icicles are also a safety hazard. The weight of accumulated snow and ice can also cause gutter hangers to fail. Damaged gutters can fall and injure people beneath them.

       2. It Reduces the Buildup of Ice at the Edge of Your Roof

Ice buildup leads to costly water damage over time when the ice melts and does not drain through your gutters. In addition to the protection you get from gutter protection products, Helmet Heat ensures that melted snow flows down your gutters.

       3. It Stops Ice From Developing Inside Gutters and Downspouts

When ice forms inside your gutters, water cannot drain, causing additional weight on the gutter structure. This leads to sagging. Helmet Heat prevents this so your gutters won’t be overburdened.

       4. It Detects Changes in Ambient Temperature

The Helmet Heat system uses heating cables that detect changes in ambient temperature and react accordingly. Thus, neither a thermostat nor constant monitoring of the system is necessary. Unlike other heat cables, Helmet Heat provides just the right amount of heat to melt the ice. They will never overheat.

       5. Helmet Heat Cables Are Underneath Your Gutter Helmet®

They fit right under your gutter covers. This gives you a clean roofline and protects your cables from accidental damage. You won’t have unsightly heating cables lessening your home’s curb appeal.
