Customer Questions & Answers
Ice Shield: Self-Regulating Roof and Gutter Deicing Systems has 14 Questions and Answers.
Can the heating element be cut to length or shortened?
Our self-regulating heating product is designed to be cut to length at the jobsite by an installer where it can then be end-capped with accessories (sold separately).
However, our constant wattage kits contain heating elements that cannot be shortened or altered in any way.
How do I estimate the roof and gutter deicing cable length needed?
Cable length needed depends on the sizes and areas of the roof that need to be deiced (roof with gutter, downspouts, valleys, and/or dormers). Our best recommendation is for you to give us a call (1-800-875-5285) and we can help you identify what measurements will need to be taken. Alternatively, you can
measure the dimensions of the aforementioned areas and refer to the installation manual to get an idea of how much cable you'll need.
Do radiant heating products have polarity?
Electric-resistance heating cables and systems have no polarity. This includes all current WarmlyYours heating elements.
Can the cable be installed to remove already formed ice dams or to clear existing ice or snow from a roof?
It is not recommended to install this product to remove ice dams that have already formed or for the purpose of clearing the roof of existing ice and snow.
Can the cable be left on in warm weather or all year long?
We do not recommend leaving the cable on all year long. It's an unnecessary use of energy to run the cable during warm weather and it could actually cause the heating cables to overheat if they're left on during very warm weather.
