Heat Tape

How does electric heat tape help?

Heat tape or heat cable helps to prevent ice dams from forming, thus improving the effectiveness of your rain gutters in the winter months. Heat tape improves your rain gutter system’s ability to drain water away from your walkways and driveways. It also helps to prevent ice clogging. When using electric heat tape, it is important to have it installed by professionals. Our experienced installers will ensure that your heat tape system is set up properly to give you a heated gutter solution that meets your needs.

What’s the best solution for ice dams or ice clogging?

We offer industrial grade heat tape that is installed directly in your rain gutters and downspouts. While there are many options out there, the quality of the commercial grade heat tape we use is far more superior to cheap options that you may find at big box retailers. Most products found at big box retailers carry a very limited warranty and can only be used on certain materials. The product we carry has a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty. It is also important to use a product that is self-regulating to improve its effectiveness and to minimize your power bill. What you will find at big box retailers is usually not self-regulating and requires constant power or wattage.

What else should I consider?

When considering electric heat tape, you should also assess the effectiveness of your home’s insulation or ventilation, which are also common problems that cause ice dams on your roof or gutters.
