I've had these installed for years and here are the pros and cons: PROS: When these are installed properly, they will work in mild to moderate conditions. Cables need to extend beyond the eve into the gutter, and zig zag up the roof beyond the depth of the eve. You also need to hang a separate cable from the roof cable that runs the length of the gutter and down the downspout, or the gutter will just fill with ice and mitigate the purpose of the cable on the roof. You also need to turn these on BEFORE a snow event. CONS: Tricky to install, especially when hanging the gutter cable (it needs slack). Count on buying more cable than you estimate too. I had to go back to the store twice. These don't work well in extreme conditions (a foot of snow or more or extreme cold temperatures - or both) They can make things worse if turned on AFTER the snow event (they just melt the snow and the water turns to ice immediately.) The shingle clips are designed poorly and don't hold well, especially if you use a roof rake (you will jut rip the cable off the roof, even if you're being careful) Your electric bill will be noticeably higher. SUMMARY: This is really just a band-aid to a bigger issue (poor insulation or ventilation, or both) But they can be helpful if you have a low-pitched roof and have resolved all those other issues and are still having problems such as I do. Do they help? Yes, sometimes... Would I install then again? Probably not. I'd either find a better product out there and spend the money or buy a house with a higher-profiled, well-insulated, well ventilated roof - or move south! PICTURE: This photo shows the cables NOT working well. Even though I turned them on well before the storm, we got 18" of snow in one day and it was -2 degrees outside. The cables can't handle it and I wish I hadn't turned them on because I feel like they made things worse. The last small storm we had, they worked much better and I had less ice and no icicles.

    The cable is working. However the directions on how to determine the length of the cable that you need was not very accurate. By the directions I should have had excess. In actuality I could not extend the cable as far down the one down spout as was recommended and still have a cable that stretched the length of the gutter.

    I purchased the 200 foot de-icing cable kit and installed it following all the directions. The cable initially did not seem to get warm, but on the next attempt, post unplugging it, it did. We then got a large snow and it won’t not trip my GFI. Now frozen into ice and can’t remove to return.

    Wonderful heat cable kit! I have it on my roof and down into the gutter. I have combined it with an outdoor GE switch that runs on Wink. I have it on a schedule to turn off at night when it's really cold and then on at sunrise until sunset. It has worked great. They come with plenty of clips for the roof.

    DO NOT BUY THESE!
    I installed these exactly per the instructions last Fall. My electric bill has doubled and I have 6” thick x 3’ deep ice dams all along my roof. THESE COILS DO NOT WORK. Spend $50 on a decent roof rake. I have roof raked in the past and never had problems. These coils are worthless.

      This product went up quickly (as quickly as 200' of cable can go up) and as I was making the final adjustments it was snowing. The problem area that I had, with the ice dam, has disappeared thanks to this wonderful product. The only thing that would have made this purchase better is if Home Depot had carried the 160' length. But, I made very good use of the extra 40' that I had and I shall be returning for mare cable for another problem area on my roof.

      Measurements from directions did not work out for us and therefore spent almost twice the time having to rerun it. Clips also require some manipulation to hold well taking even longer to install. Otherwise product works as described so far.
