Protect Your Home from Ice Dams with Helmet Heat®

By December 2, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

In winter, many Rhode Island roofs develop ice dams. This happens when snow melts and refreezes along the roof eaves, turning into a dam of heavy ice. Over time, the ice can gradually cause water to back up underneath shingles, and gutters to sag and pull away from your home’s exterior. 

Ice Dams

With ice damming consistently a problem for some homes every winter, many homeowners are looking for surefire ways to prevent this phenomenon. Fortunately, Gutter Helmet® has a way to combat ice dams: Helmet Heat®. Moon Associates, the top provider of quality alternatives to leaf guard gutters in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, explains the features of this unique system.

What is Helmet Heat®?

A self-regulating gutter heating component, Helmet Heat can be installed on gutters with a Gutter Helmet protection system. What sets it apart from other options is that it can melt snow even before it forms ice, which can weigh down your gutters. With Helmet Heat installed, snow will melt before it reaches the eaves, allowing the water to flow directly to your gutters and downspouts.

Here are the features that make up this unique system.

  • Self-Regulating Heat Cables – These heavy-duty, commercial-grade cables have an irradiated conductive core that automatically increases heat output as the temperature drops. When the temperature rises, it decreases the output on its own. You don’t need to monitor these cables as they can regulate heat automatically.
  • GFCI Protection – With this feature, Helmet Heat cables cannot overheat. This makes Helmet Heat safer than any other heating cable products on the market.
  • Control Box Options – Helmet Heat comes with two sturdy, weatherproof junction box options, allowing you to pick the right control for your home.
  • Hidden Design – Unlike other options, Helmet Heat doesn’t use messy roof clips and exposed wires. We hide this system during installation to avoid compromising your home’s curb appeal.

Moon Associates can install Helmet Heat on your home at the same time as Gutter Helmet – the most trusted brand in gutter protection. Compared with leaf guard gutters in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, this system has more advanced features that can ensure a permanent solution to gutter problems. Call us at (800) 824-3772 or complete our form to schedule a FREE consultation today.
