Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HomeOwnerGuy Does the job
I had ice dams forming in my gutter above my porch so I loosely placed the cable in the gutter and plugged it in for a few hours to melt the ice. I went back later on a clear day and did a proper install. I only plug it in as needed because it seems to drain quite a bit of power. My only gripe (and it's very minor) is that the brackets used to attach the cable to the shingles don't hold very well as the are. I had to bend the little barbs out with a pair of pliers to get them to hold—a minor inconvenience. They still work fine.

This product works good the biggest thing I hated about it was the amount of electricity used to power it. Plan on adding another 120 bucks a month to your power bill if you run it all month long, I found out the hard way.

Made a big difference last winter. Easy to install . Our light bill was not bad... We order another set for the front of the house. Great produce .

This product has been on my roof for three years and is working fine. The one challenge that you will need to watch is in the installation process. The cable remembers the coil from being in the box. This will keep it from laying as flat as you would want it to be if you start at the wrong end of the cable. If you have the time, take the cable out and uncoil for a few days first.

If you have any ice dam problems this a sure fire fix. Need to plan for a separate outlet to power.
