Helmet Heat: An Effective Solution to Reduce Ice Dams

By October 29, 2014No Comments

In our last blog, we talked about how ice dams form and how most homeowners deal with them. Some homeowners take care of the problem the old-fashioned way: they climb up a ladder and start hacking away using an axe, a pick, or a rake. Still others choose to install heat cables—a dangerous and unsightly alternative.

Fortunately, Huff ‘N Puff, the #1 provider of gutter protection in Albany, has developed an effective solution and a safe alternative to traditional heat cables. Gutter Helmet introduces Helmet Heat, a heating cable system installed inside the Gutter Helmet gutter shield to stop ice dams from forming and prevent gutters from freezing with self-regulating warmth.

Helmet Heat is actually safe to use as it is an automatic and self-regulating cable heating system, which means you can leave it anytime of the day without you having to worry about it being a fire hazard. Helmet Heat requires 50% less cable than traditional exposed wire systems, which means that it will not affect your home’s beautiful façade.

Furthermore, Helmet Heat is invisible. Most cable heaters are quite unsightly—they are exposed for all to see: guests arriving for your dinner party, or neighbors passing by your house could find that they detract from your home’s appearance. Thanks to Gutter Helmet’s patented brackets, specifically designed to carry and conceal the Helmet Heat cable, there will be no clips or exposed wires to compromise the appearance of your home.

If you want an effective yet safe solution against ice dams, you can rely on Helmet Heat by Gutter Helmet, the most trusted provider of gutter covers in Albany. Gutter Helmet is engineered to handle the heaviest snowfalls and the toughest ice dams.
