Questions & Answers

can the 60ft be used with an extention cord if there is no other option?

I know it says not recommended but if that is the only option for the moment can it be done, and would there be a specific length or gauge cord not to exceed, thanks
Asked by: sickofwinter
Just make a 12 gauge exterior cord and check for wear at the end of each season. It's best to remove the extension cord each spring to minimize the weathering effects. (14 gauge would work as well, in a shorter length though)

Can this cable be used to keep snow off solar panels?

Can this cable be attached to solar panels without damaging either item?
Asked by: Nenny911
Depending on the amount of snow your trying to clear, probably not a good choice for solar. I know solar panels heat up just fine in when these are exposed, so perhaps the little channels provided by the wire/tape will accelerate the panel's clearing. However, I've got to believe there are better products or systems (maybe a well placed and protected blower utilizing attic space heat).

Can this be used for water pipes

Asked by: roundguy
Use the heat tapes designed for pipe heating. The thermostats are quite different and this deicing cables are not designed to 'touch' each other or get bent to the degree necessary in wrapping pipe.

What is the rating of this cable in watts?

Asked by: Dukie
The amperage is more useful measure. The cables will vary in draw from 2 to 8 amps depending on length. Just remember to look at the circuit the cables are on (15 or 20 amp) before deciding how many cables you can install. Instructions will recommend different or dedicated use outlets for each cable, which is seldom possible. (if you don't have amperage ratings listed there are conversion tables on the internet to go from watts to amps)

60 ft. Roof De-Icing Cable Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete TRASH Got this thinking it would be a good idea to get rid of the ice on my roof it worked for an hour and died not worth the time installing it
Date published: 2018-01-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roof De-Icing Cable The clips are for three tap shingles. You have to adjust the clips to use on other shingle types.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from worthwhile purchase I had a previous set of these cables on the roof for the past 8 years and they worked very well i had a second one running in the gutter which needed replacement after 10 years so i decided to replace both at the same time. They do an excellent job at keeping the roof ice free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ice dam saver Product was rather easy to install. More than enough hooks were supplied
Date published: 2015-04-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEVER AGAIN Hard to work with, wire twists and will not lay flat. The wires that connect to the tip on the end came loose and that rendered the cable useless in the middle of this winter. This is my second of this brand cables. I would not buy this product again. based on my expirence.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Expensive to run I did not know how expensive it would be to run what I "thought" was a low wattage item. It certainly takes a long time melting the snow/ice off my roof so I was shocked when I got my electricity bill after installing two 60 ft kits on the front and one 100 ft kit to the back of my house. It added $100 to my electricity bill in a one month period. There should be a warning label on the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to install/ won't know till it snows,hopefully never. Went up easy. I just had to do the roof on the sunroom. That's were the Ice dams form. 27 ft. with pleanty to spare.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent but not commercial quality The kit is easy to work with but the clips provided seemed rather flimsy. That said there were more than needed in the pack so those that were damaged could be discarded without consequence. I got the kit(s) on the roof in 2 different places without an major issues and now need winter to arrive to see if they work as advertised.
