How to Maintain Your HotEdge Roof Ice Melt System

The HotEdge design is the most energy-efficient roof melt system on the market and it’s easy to maintain! Let us explain:

Unlike other costly, energy-zapping roof melt systems that rely on concealed and closely spaced heating cables that are very difficult to maintain, the HotEdge systems are different.  HotEdge Roof Ice Melt Systems maximize heat transfer by engineering maximum separation of heat cables.   In other words, a HotEdge Roof Ice Melt System melts more roof surface area with less heat cable making them the most energy efficient by a minimum 30% margin!

The commercial grade self-regulating heat tape that comes with HotEdge Roof Systems will eventually need to be replaced.   It’s a wearable part no fault of HotEdge.  Thanks to the engineers at HotEdge, they have intentionally designed the HotEdge Roof Ice Melt System for easy heat tape replacement! This alone is a big advantage over all other market alternatives.

On all metal roofs, first just loosen the self tapping screws in the slots holding the HotEdge Rail to fascia boards.  On all other shingled roofs, just simply pull the always partially exposed heat cable from the specially designed angulated three-sided raceway.  Next, insert replacement heat cable into the raceway using HotTool™.  It’s really that easy.

Here at HotEdge, we’re proud that our roof melt systems boast the lowest amount of customer maintenance. Other over engineered ice prevention systems bury and conceal heating elements beneath your roofing material, making them nearly impossible and cost prohibitive to maintain.  At HotEdge it was our goal to design systems so  customers can  enjoy our high-performance and low-maintenance roof melt system without the anxiety of a labor intensive process of eventually replacing the heat cable.

See why HotEdge is the first and only company manufacturing roof edge ice melt system to be awarded the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Certificate of approval for safety and compliance.  Rest assured that we’ll take care of your roof by preventing ice dam problems and from icicles from forming.  You can sit back, relax and enjoy the savings and the beauty of every winter season.
