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.

Product works great. WarmlyYours terrific; prepared me with all the necessary information for the installation and back end support if we needed it at the time of installation. I’ll be back.

Amazing Products and Customer Service

Anna H., Elburn, IL on 09/24/2021

I have been a customer with WarmlyYours for about a year now, and i wanted to compliment the amazing products and customer service. Customer Service Representative, Troy, has been so helpful and prompt, it makes ordering a breeze

Installed myself, works great!

Michael S., Ellicott City, MD on 02/15/2021

I purchased a Transfer Switch box (12 x 120 volt), a snow sensor, and an ice sensor, and installed them myself as per instructions. I had a couple questions (how to connect two "yellow wires" and where to best position the snow sensor), both answered immediately by a quick phone call. I couldn't be happier.

The 5 stars is not for the product but the "Customer Service"

Chuck R., Rochester, NY on 02/15/2021

The 5 stars is not for the product but the "Customer Service". I could not use the product purchased, however, the return process was very easy, which I appreciated.

Just Installed

Kim V., Malden, MA on 10/02/2017

We just installed the Ice Melt last week and the light lit up but we won’t know if it actually will take care of the ice until winter. But as far as I know it was installed properly so we are anticipating it working. Kim


Robert P., Boston, MA on 01/09/2017

Excellent service, from project bidding & planning right through installation. Homeowner is ecstatic with the de-icing system. Thank you
