Make Winter Headaches a Thing of the Past with Helmet Heat®

By December 3, 2015October 17th, 2023No Comments

Do you dread another winter with snow and ice clogging your gutters? Are you having trouble achieving proper water drainage around your home? Do you have bad memories of roof leaks and damaged walls, ceilings and insulation due to ice dams? If you don’t want this winter to be a repeat of past winters, it’s time to invest in a gutter heating system.

A Self-Regulating Heating System

Heat cables are the traditional solution to the problem of gutters filled with ice and snow that then lead to ice dams, icicles and roof leaks. However, heat cables are installed along the edge of the roofline in a zigzag pattern, creating an unsightly disruption to a home’s curb appeal. Helmet Heat® from Gutter Helmet® is a self-regulating heating system designed to discreetly keep ice and snow from building up around the edges of a roof. The system provides just enough heat to keep Gutter Helmet gutter protection warm and melt the ice, but not enough to make the cables too hot to touch.

Helmet Heat® offers important advantages over traditional roof heating cables. Because Helmet Heat® heats up only when needed and automatically adjusts to the temperature outside, it is both effective and energy-efficient. It’s also nearly invisible: Helmet Heat® is designed to be concealed inside Gutter Helmet® gutter protection systems, so there is no ugly exposed wire or visible clips. It’s also safe because it’s GFCI-protected and UL-listed and approved.
