Keep Your Home Cozy in the Winter with Heated Gutters

By December 9, 2015October 17th, 2023No Comments

If you dread winter because of the runoff and drainage problems that come with it, then you may want to consider investing in a gutter heating system. These systems use electricity to generate heat in and around your gutters, melting ice and snow before they can form into ice dams. Gutter heaters are an effective way to keep gutters free of blockages all winter-long.

There are heating systems that complement certain types of gutters in Columbus MS, and the local area. In this post, Ensz & Sons discusses your gutter heating options and the ways you can benefit from having them installed.

Features and Benefits of Heater Systems

• Heating Tape – Experts install heating tape along your gutters and across your roof near the edge of the roofline. The tape affixes with clips and is plugged into a control box. The only time the tape will activate is when the temperature falls below 40 degrees.

• Cable Systems – This type is installed the same way as a heating tape, except that you are working with cables. These cables lay inside your gutters and on top of the roof. Once all the cables are set, all you need to do is plug the end into an active power source. You can set your cables to run on a timer so that they work only during certain times of the day.

• Heating Caps – Similar to standard gutter guards, our experts install heating caps over your gutters. The main difference is that the metal in these caps can be heated to melt ice and snow before dams can form. The water then simply slides off the cap, into the gutter and through the downspouts, away from your home. Some heating caps offer the option to be plugged directly into an electrical outlet or attached to a temperature sensor.

Whichever approach you choose, it is always best to leave the installation of gutter heaters to the experts. We know all the necessary precautionary measures to reduce the chance of accidents in the event of an electrical outage. We can also help you choose the kind of system that will work best for your type of home.
