Customer Questions & Answers
Ice Shield: DIY Roof and Gutter Deicing Kit: Constant Wattage has 13 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.
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.
Does a roof and gutter deicing cable system need a thermostat or controller?
Our self-regulating cable product does require the use of a control and/or a sensor to operate. WarmlyYours offers a variety of controls ranging from a basic manual control to our premium option that provides the ultimate in convenience and hands-off operation.
Our constant wattage cable kits do not require a thermostat/controller and can be connected to an outlet throughout an entire winter, during a single snow event, or whenever deicing is needed. An optional plug-in thermostat can be used if desired.

I’ve had issues with ice building up in the gutters for 15 years. I Installed a couple of 100ft heating cables in my main trouble areas and with one decent snowfall in the books, they did the job as advertised.

A very nice kit overall. Easy to install (especially if you are a ladder monkey) with clear and concise directions. The kits came with more than enough shingle clips and cable spacers - which was very welcome (and so rare these days). I installed 2 sets – in the gutters, downspouts and on the roof - to solve an ice dam in a shady alcove.

I recently purchased a 100 foot deicing cable. It was easy to install and it kept my eves trough clear. I would recommend this product to anyone.
