PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable Description
Cold temperatures and non-flowing water pipes don’t mix well. Residentially, these frozen pipes can mean inconvenience and high repair costs. In an industrial or light-commercial setting, it can mean huge losses in productivity and potential damage to expensive property. The PRO-Tect Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable from WarmlyYours provides a reliable, energy efficient defense to protect vulnerable pipes from freezing.
This trace heating product is great for protecting pipes that are located in poorly insulated areas or that are located on perimeter walls. The durable, thermoplastic outer-jacket makes this product impervious to the elements, which means it can be used for exterior pipes and in wet locations.
The PRO-Tect heat tracing product is also self-regulating. This means the power output (watts per linear foot) of the product will fluctuate based on the cable’s temperature. This is automatic and ensures both energy efficiency and low operating costs. It also helps prevent overlapped or criss-crossed cables from overheating. This particular cable has a nominal heat output of 5 watts per linear foot when the cable is at 50°F (10°).
This 500’ length of 240V heating cable can be used to protect pipes that are 500’ long or shorter. With the use of Power Connection Kit (SR-PWR-KIT) accessory, which is sold separately, it can be trimmed and end-capped to exact size by the installer.

Customer Questions & Answers
PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection Self-Regulating Heating Cable has 21 Questions and Answers.
Will heat tape really keep my pipes from freezing?
Simply put, yes--the right type of heat tape will really keep your pipes from freezing. By applying gentle heat, heat tape can prevent the water in your pipes from turning to ice and blocking the flow of water--or worse. Combined with proper insulation, heat tape regulates the overall temperature of your water pipes.
Will pipe freeze protection cables work on DC voltage?
No. They are not designed to be powered by DC voltage. They must be used with AC voltage.
What is heat trace?
Heat trace, heat tape, or heating cable for pipes is typically an electric heating cable that can be attached to the pipe which helps keep non-flowing water pipes in poorly insulated perimeter walls flowing despite harsh winter temperatures.
What is the power output of this cable?
We sell three different max power outputs: 10W/ft. 8W/ft., and 5W/ft. Because these cables are self-regulating, the actual power output will depend on the temperature (i.e. the lower the temperature, the higher the power output).
How does this type of cable work?
Self-regulating heating cables, like PRO-Tect: Pipe Freeze Protection cables, use a conductive polymer core, which continually adjusts its heat output.
This is why this type of cable, unlike some heat tapes, won’t burn out if it is wrapped closely together, overlapped, or overinsulated. This also means lower operating costs and increased energy efficiency.
