The AIR-STAT outdoor thermostat provides basic control for roof and gutter deicing or pipe freeze protection systems. It detects temperature only, activating the system for continuous operation at 40°F or below. The AIR-STAT thermostat is UL Listed and features a NEMA 4X enclosure and a 3 –foot, bulb-and-capillary type sensor. It is rated for a maximum 22 amps and can be used with 120V or 240V roof and gutter deicing or pipe freeze protection systems.

Customer Questions & Answers
Pipe Freeze Control 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.
