The Benefits of Investing in Heated Gutter Systems

The Benefits of Investing in Heated Gutter Systems

February 22, 2018

Ice damming is a common problem during the winter. Efficient attic insulation helps minimize ice damming, but does not eliminate it altogether. Heated gutters are a much more effective solution, especially if your area often experiences heavy snowfall. In today’s post, Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY shares the benefits of heated gutter systems.

Gutter Systems

Takes the Weight Off Your Gutters

Even if you don’t have ice dams, ice can still collect in the gutters, and this added weight can cause your gutters to sag or even detach from your roof. If your gutter hangers were nailed to the fascia board and were forced off, this could leave holes in the wood that will provide an entry point for moisture. This can result in wood deterioration and lead to an unplanned fascia replacement.

The objective is to keep your gutters free of both debris and standing water or ice. A well-maintained and correctly leveled gutter with Gutter Helmet® will prevent gutter clogs, but it’s not enough to keep you safe from the threat of ice dams. Having heated gutters gives you another line of defense against ice dams and water freezing in your gutters. 

Helps Prevent Icicles

Icicles pose a danger to passersby, as they can break off and fall to the ground at any time. Heated gutters help prevent icicles from forming. Our Helmet Heat® system works in tandem with our Gutter Helmet gutter protection system in making sure your gutters are always clear of clogs and ice. In addition to heating the gutters, Helmet Heat also heats the downspouts and makes sure water doesn’t refreeze on its journey through your system.
