Customer Questions & Answers

Can it be left on continuously in winter if I'm not there to turn on and off?

Asked by: HappyCamper
Be smart about it...put it on a timer (Something nobody mentioned here...)

Gutters have foam inserts in them to prevent leaf build up..

Should I just omit the portion that goes in the gutter and only put the zig-zag pattern on roof or is it safe to run the cable under the foam?
Asked by: Mike
Run the zig zag to the outer edge of the gutter and bend the clip for the gutter around the lip on your gutter. This melts a channel out to the edge of the gutter and gives the water a place to go, but your gutter will fill with ice so make sure it is attached securely. Did this to the roof on my back patio, worked great last winter.

down spout and gutter install

I have four 13ft downspouts across the front of my house with gutters between 15ft and 28ft between them is it OK to run up the inside of downspout then inside gutter to next downspout then make a loop running it down and then back up the inside of the next downspout and continue this procedure for the remaining gutters and downspouts
Asked by: DLA
Guess you figured it by now but for the others, if you run down one drain and back up another then you have wire on the ground unless your ending a line in the bottom of that drain and starting a new line to go up the drain of the next pipe to the roof. on the ground its not doing anything except that your tulips maybe coming up early this year

Can these cables be used on a metal roof?

Asked by: Judy
ck with frost king on these models , on commercial sites I have seen them and the clips were insulated but it could be a cost saving issue, plastic vs. metal. but always ck with the company they got the specs on how it will work and requirements of install . for the home its usually simple and universal but metal is another subject .

200 ft. Roof Cable Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roof Heat Cables for ice & snow The kit provided all the things necessary to complete the job including a good set of instruction for you do- it - yourselfer's DIY. For a residential application the product is perfect. I used the same brand and style on a project 10 years ago and it is still performing as designed. Dependable brand, reasonable price... go for it I say. Marty - Golden Colorado

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does what it should 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay - not a fun job to install Plan on running them closer together than suggested. They leave triangles of snow/ice between the lines. The clips can be a bit fiddly, I felt like I was damaging the shingles. I would suggest planning ahead and putting it up on a really hot day so the shingles would be more flexible and not crumble off or bend the aluminum cleats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm If you have any ice dam problems this a sure fire fix. Need to plan for a separate outlet to power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Had a pretty heavy snow and ice just after installing. Did not plug in right away. Got a lot of ice in the gutter and ice cycles hanging on them. Decided to plug the heater in and within a short while, water was dripping down the downspouts and within a couple of days, the ice had cleared. I now plug them in with a fresh snow fall and my gutters drain off and stay clear without the ice cycles...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Power Hog 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.
