When you live in a climate that is prone to extreme winter weather conditions, snow and ice is a way of life. Unfortunately, the accumulation of snow and ice on the roof of your home can lead to roof ice problems such as ice damming, which can cause significant structural damage to the exterior and interior of your home.
Many market options exist to try to prevent the buildup of roof ice and snow, but there is only one practical solution: HotEdge Roof Ice Prevention Systems.
How does it work? The patented design of roof ice melt systems by HotEdge is engineered to heat more roof surface with less commercial grade self-regulating heat trace cable. This means your roof is heating more effectively while still using less heated roof cable, which can translate to less energy being used. The heater cables we use in our design are separated in a way that achieves maximum surface melt. Our groundbreaking Ice Dam Prevention Systems are able to be easily and effectively installed on all roof types, including asphalt shingles, metal, synthetic slate and wood shake roofs.
How does HotEdge compare? Currently, there are only two other systems besides HotEdge that are designed to continuously heat the edge of your roof to prevent snow and ice buildup: heated mats and aluminum metal track. Besides easily being the most expensive system to produce, install, and operate, heated mats are unable to be effectively serviced since they are buried underneath your roofing material. Additionally, they are not UL Approved for safety and compliance. Meanwhile, aluminum tracks are outdated and largely ineffective against roof ice melt, and heat less roof surface than HotEdge, despite needing 33% more heating cable. Once again, aluminum metal tracks are not UL Approved.
