Protect Your Home From Ice Damage with Helmet Heat®August 25, 2016
Your gutters help keep water damage at bay. At Huff ‘N Puff, we can make your gutter system more functional with Helmet Heat®. We install this inside your Gutter Helmet® or any other gutter protection system.
How It Works
Helmet Heat is a cable that activates when the outdoor temperature drops below freezing. This cable has a thermoplastic elastomer over jacket around a conductive core. The core heats up when the temperature drops and turns off when the outdoor temperature warms up. You don’t have to worry about the cables underneath your Gutter Helmet because they self-regulate.
Our Helmet Heat also has two parallel nickel-coated copper bus conductors. They serve as the heating element in the system. Inside these conductors is an extruded radiation cross-linked polyolefin conductive core.
When you invest in Helmet Heat on your next gutters replacement, it comes with the following:
- You can choose from any of our two sturdy and weatherproof control boxes.
- It only heats up when needed, so you don’t have to worry about high energy bills.
- It has no unsightly wiring on the outside.
- It uses less cable material compared with traditional heating systems.
- It comes with a dedicated heat cable breaker or a light switch.
Reasons to Invest in Helmet Heat
We recommend Helmet Heat as part of your gutter installation because it protects your home from water damage during colder months. It is ground-fault circuit interrupter protected, so it won’t become too hot to touch and will maintain a continuous temperature for a long period. Helmet Heat also prevents sagging and clogging inside gutters because it helps melts snow and ice.
