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 18 Questions and Answers.
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 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.
How much cable will I need for my project?
The amount of cable needed depends on the size and type of pipe, and on the lowest expected temperature. Once you know the type of pipe (metal or plastic), pipe diameter, length of pipe, and the minimum expected temperature, you can use this form to request a quote. Just follow the instructions on the form to get it back to us.
Where can pipe freeze protection cable be used?
This heating cable can be used to protect aboveground water pipes, which are insulated and weatherproofed, from freezing—weatherproofing is particularly important for any cable installed outdoors.
