Customer Questions & Answers

Don't see the answer you're looking for? Post your question

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.

Do radiant heating products have polarity?

Electric-resistance heating cables and systems have no polarity. This includes all current WarmlyYours heating elements.

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.

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

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.

Quality Product

J S., Park City, UT on 01/10/2024

This is a quality product and far superior to the crap you can get at the local big box hardware store. It is packaged well, unravels nicely, and does not get tangled. My only complaint was certain lengths I needed were not in stock.

Quality in the details

J S., Park City, UT on 11/13/2023

WarmlyYours constant wattage heat tape is far better than the competition. Compared to the Frost King brand sold at Home Depot, and the Heat It brand sold on Amazon, WarmlyYours has a superior packaging. The heat tape always unravels without getting tangled, unlike the competitor brands. Also, the aluminum clips are nicely separated from one another, which makes it easy to grab what's needed.

Great customer experience

Helen C., Wood Dale, IL on 11/07/2023

The fact that they are willing to look at pictures and measurements to help figure out how much deicing cable that was needed was great in itself. Cable was high quality and there was plenty of roof connector clips and accessories.

Winter bomb cycle

Anonymous, Medina, OH on 12/27/2022

The recent winter bomb cycle was the first real test of the de-icing protection. It withstood the actual cold temperature, the added windchill factor and the high winds. It worked and stayed attached through it all.
