Reducing Ice Dams Through Helmet Heat®

By March 1, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Ice dams are ridges of ice that form at the edges of your roof mostly due to poor roof ventilation or air sealing in the house. They decrease the risk of snowmelt draining off your roof, eventually freezing them and forming into ice dams. They present a serious problem because they can cause water to seep into your home and compromise your investment. They can also weigh down your gutters and cause them to detach from your fascia boards, leading to collapse and potentially costly repairs.

Helmet Heat®

An efficient way to reduce ice damming is to install Gutter Helmet® gutter guards in Monticello, Minnesota, complemented by Helmet Heat®. Let Gutter Helmet of Minnesota show you how Helmet Heat works.

How Does Helmet Heat Work?

Helmet Heat is an ice reduction system that minimizes the formation of ice dams by melting snow before it has a chance to build up at your roof’s edges. Meanwhile, snowmelt can flow unhindered into your gutters then into your downspouts to ensure it moves away from your home.

Features of the Helmet Heat Ice Reduction System

  • Heavy-Duty: Commercial Grade Self-Regulating Heat Cable (120v/240v): A heat cable with a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) over jacket is located at the center of the system. This heat cable’s core generates heat based on changes in temperature. This ensures safety and energy efficiency. Furthermore, it doesn’t require you to watch over it since it is self-regulating.
  • Safe and Reliable: Helmet Heat cables don’t overheat and the system provides just enough heat to keep your gutters warm to reduce ice damming. They can also maintain heat through extended periods if necessary.
  • Control Box Options: Choose from two sturdy weatherproof control options.
  • Hidden Cables: Helmet Heat cables are hidden underneath your Gutter Helmet® gutter guards in Monticello, Minnesota, preserving the beauty of your roofline.
