Helmet Heat Ice Reduction System

Helmet Heat Ice Reduction System_674x420

If you live in an area where you have to worry about snow in the winter, you also have to think about the possibility of ice – not just on your walk where you might slip, or your driveway where your car might skid, but also on your roof, where ice dams could form.

What’s an Ice Dam?

Snow and ice on gutters.
In the winter, snow on the roof is normal. But when it begins to melt and refreeze, you end up with an ice dam.

An ice dam forms when the snow melts on your roof then refreezes.

This happens because there can be warmer spots on your roof than others – warm enough to melt frozen snow. But these are just spots – it’s still cold enough to snow outside. So when the water from the frozen snow reaches a colder area, it refreezes, this time becoming ice instead of snow. 

The problem with this is that ice is heavy, and it also doesn’t melt as easily as snow. And this freezing and thawing routine could happen multiple times before you’re able to do anything about it or before the weather warms enough for the ice to melt on its own so it can build up. Built-up ice on your roof can be a big problem. Its weight can pull off shingles and cause other sorts of damage to the roof. If it disrupts the roofing materials, it may even cause leakage and water damage inside the house. 

Ice dams can also hurt your gutters. Just as the weight of the ice might pull on shutters on the roof, it can also weigh down the gutters, causing them to sag or even break. And ice in the gutters will also stop water from flowing freely through them. And even if they don’t, the resulting clog can cause other problems like interior or exterior water damage.

How Helmet Heat Can Help

Snow and ice in gutters.
Ice dams don’t have to cause damage to your roof or gutters if you have the right kind of equipment installed.

Helmet Heat is a solution that can help you solve the problem of ice dams before they begin to damage your roof. The solution uses self-heating cables installed in your gutters that warm them enough to melt the ice. That way, instead of ice building up in your gutters, it returns to water, and the gutter system continues to flow normally, protecting your roof and your gutters and assuring your gutter system continues to function as it should.

The Helmet Heat system is self-regulating, making it a safe and hassle-free solution for your home. They’re designed to detect temperature changes and react to them as needed, so there’s nothing for you to worry about – they’ll do their work on their own. And because they can’t overheat and are GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter) protected, they also don’t create safety issues for you and your family.

If you want to know more about protecting your home with Helmet Heat, Harry Helmet can help. They’ve been working on homes like yours for over 30 years and can assist you with finding the roof and gutter solutions that your home needs.  Schedule a free estimate.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
