Protect Your Most Vulnerable Pipes with WarmlyYours Heat Tape

Are your pipes protected from the freezing temperatures that winter can bring? Our heat tape for pipes can protect your home from frozen pipes. Protecting your water pipes from freezing can prevent restricted flow and the dreaded burst pipe. Heat tape should be the critical part of your pipe freeze protection system.

By installing heat tape for pipes, you will be able to keep non-flowing water pipes in poorly insulated perimeter walls flowing despite harsh winter temperatures. We offer two different versions of heat tape for pipes. The first is a self-regulating heat tape for pipes which helps keep running costs down by adjusting the wattage output per linear foot in direct response to the ambient temperature. The second is a constant wattage heating cable for pipes that is a DIY-friendly and economical alternative.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

How does a heat tape for pipes work?

By attaching a heating cable to the exterior of a pipe, it will transfer the heat to the pipe to prevent frozen pipes. And with the use of pipe insulation the heat will be evenly spread and won't dissipate as quickly.

3 people found this helpful.  Did you find this helpful? Yes No

How long does it take for pipes to unfreeze if heat tape is installed?

Unfortunately there's no set answer for this because it depends on many factors such as the diameter of the pipes, the installation density of the heating cables, the outdoor temperature, the installation of thermal insulation sleeves, etc.

There are too many variables to provide an accurate answer. Even though this product is designed to keep pipes from freezing, it is not designed to thaw pipes. If your pipe has frozen with the heat tape installed and energized, please check the placement of the built-in thermostat and verify that the insulation has been properly installed and waterproofed.
