Ice dams form when warm air escapes into the attic, which then warms up the snow piled on the roof above it. When this happens, snow melts, which runs off the slope of the roof and ends up on the gutters. However, because the warm air always rises and cold air sinks, it’s colder in the gutters and the melted snow refreezes, creating an ice dam and blocking your gutters.

Prevent Ice Dam Formation With Helmet Heat® Technology

You don’t have to deal with ice dams anymore, however, with the Helmet Heat® technology created for Gutter Helmet®’s gutter guard systems. Here’s how it works:

It Keeps Snowmelt in Liquid Form

Helmet Heat warms up gutters and downspouts, allowing snowmelt to retain its liquid form and drain properly. It’s one of the most efficient, highly effective, and convenient ways to get rid of ice dams on your roof.

It Complements Gutter Helmet

This device is specifically made for Gutter Helmet’s gutter protection system. It is installed underneath the gutter guards for protection against hailstorms or any harsh weather condition. This strategic placement makes Helmet Heat a seamless part of your Gutter Helmet product.

With these two gutter products working hand in hand with each other, you can rest assured that no ice-related blockage will ever occur in your gutters.

It Performs Even Better With an Attic Ventilation System

Despite how Helmet Heat works well in eliminating ice dams, you can still lessen its formation by fixing the root of the problem: your attic ventilation. Do this by having at least one square foot of attic ventilation per 300 square feet of attic floor area. A better attic ventilation system will not only eliminate ice dams from forming but also helps you save money from reduced energy consumption.
