One of the common problems many Minnesota homeowners face is snowmelt refreezing at the eaves of roof and creating ice dams. These ice dams can cause the gutters to separate from their attachments and damage the roofing system. The good news is you can avoid this issue by installing rain gutter guards with ice reduction capabilities.

Helmet Heat®: Protecting Your Roof Against Ice Dams

Gutter Helmet®, the leading gutter protection system on the market, comes with the Helmet Heat® system that prevents ice dams from forming. Learn how it helps homeowners avoid the problem of ice dams during the winter months.

A Look at Its Features

When left ignored, the buildup of ice and snow on the roof and gutters can result in costly repairs or replacements. By installing the Helmet Heat Ice Reduction System, you won’t have to worry about cleaning the whole area during the colder months. The system consists of a heating cable with a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) over the jacket.

The cable has an irradiated conductive core that only engages depending on the changes in the ambient temperature. When the temperature of the surroundings falls, the core increases its heat output just enough to melt ice. Safe and energy-efficient, there’s no need to monitor what’s happening in your gutters since Helmet Heat self-regulates.

Helmet Heat can warm up just enough to melt ice, reaching temperatures of up to 150°F for longer periods when needed. Installed underneath the Gutter Helmet, this concealment helps retain the gutters’ sleek appearance.

A Look at Its Advantages

When you have Helmet Heat installed together with Gutter Helmet, you protect your roof and gutters from ice dams. The ice reduction system is fully autonomous, meaning it doesn’t require any maintenance from you.
