How Helmet Heat Helps Reduce Ice Dams

By December 11, 2015October 16th, 2023No Comments

Preventing the formation of ice dams is easy, you just need to keep the entire roofing system at the same temperature as the eaves. One way to do that is through increasing ventilation, adding insulation, and sealing off every area that is prone to leaking. Another way to do it is through Helmet Heat.

In this post, we discuss why it’s the proven solution to ice dams.

Helmet Heat: The Proven Ice Dam Solution

Gutter Helmet of Northern Minnesota installs gutter protection systems that reduce ice dam formation. Helmet Heat is an exclusive, self-regulating, Gutter Helmet heating device that is designed to prevent ice and snow build-up. It does this by melting snow and ice before it gets the chance to form onto your roof. Once the snow and ice melts, it simply flows into your gutters, downspouts, and away from your house.

Helmet Heat offers other benefits, including energy efficiency. This only heats up when necessary, which means it’s self-regulated and does not require close monitoring. Helmet Heat is specially designed to fit the Gutter Helmet system, which can be installed on various types of gutters in Grand Rapids MN, or anywhere in the local area. Helmet Heat makes use of 50% less cable than traditional heating systems. Additionally, we have a team that installs them perfectly — you won’t see any unsightly clips or wires.

Gutter Helmet: The Ultimate Gutter Protection

Aside from Helmet Heat, Gutter Helmet on its own is another system that protects gutters from ice damming effectively. For over 30 years, Gutter Helmet remains as the number one gutter protection system. It’s popular for good reasons. Gutter Helmet’s nose-forward design lets rainwater in while filtering everything else out and away. It efficiently keeps gutters free from leaves, branches, and other debris.

It also has PermaLife™ Finish, which resists corrosion from salt water or acid rain. This high-performance paint also resists fading and chalking, keeping Gutter Helmet looking good as new for a long period of time. It is firmly attached to the roof, so it stays attached no matter what. Gutter Helmet does an excellent job in keeping various elements off your gutters, meaning rainwater or melted snow will flow with ease.
