Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction System: The Proven Ice Dam Solution

Helmet Heat by Gutter Helmet is an exclusive self-regulating heating cable designed to keep ice and snow from building up around the edges of your roof.


How It Works

Helmet Heat reduces ice dams by melting snow before it has a chance to accumulate at your roof eaves and affect the flow of water through your gutters and downspouts. In this way, damage is averted.

Your local dealer can set up both systems at the same time. Learn more about how Helmet Heat is installed.

Operating Instructions

Once the Helmet Heat system is installed on your home, all you need to do is switch it on or off at the recommended times via dedicated heat cable breaker(s) or with a dedicated light switch. Any build-up that has already formed may be knocked off manually to expedite thawing.
