Gutter Helmet Systems Launches “Helmet Heat” Product in Time for Winter

ice dams rain guttersGutter Helmet Systems announces the launch of “Helmet Heat,” a new product used in conjunction with the Gutter Helmet protection system to prevent dangerous icicles, ice dams, and snow from accumulating in gutters. By warming the eaves enough to melt snow and ice, Helmet Heat can help eliminate ice damage, slippery steps, hazardous walkways and many other serious safety hazards caused by snow and ice. Helmet Heat also removes the necessity of climbing onto the roof to clear icicles from the eaves, a common cause of wintertime falls and injuries.

The technology behind Helmet Heat, manufactured by Heat Trace Products LLC, is a thin, self-regulating cable that lies inside the gutter. Once it’s installed, Helmet Heat regulates itself and does not need to be turned on or off. When the temperature drops, the Helmet Heat cable heats up, melting ice or snow and preventing build-up in the gutter. When the temperature rises, the cable cools down again, saving the consumer money and energy. Gutter Helmet’s patented brackets are specifically designed to carry and conceal the heat cable, leaving the exterior of the home unblemished.

The product is perfectly timed to coincide with the arrival of colder weather. Last winter Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey experienced a series of devastating snowstorms, dubbed “Snowmageddon,” that dumped over two feet of snow, led to a state of emergency, and left many homeowners with extensive damage to homes and property. Gutters filled up with ice and tore away from houses, icicles dripped from eaves and froze up doorsteps and sidewalks, ice dams caused roofs to leak, and, occasionally, entire roofs collapsed. An ice dam is a buildup of ice under the roof edge, causing melted water to creep up under the shingles and leads to interior leaks and rotting roof rafters. With Helmet Heat, many of these winter problems can be avoided, saving homeowners thousands of dollars in repairs.The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting another cold and snowy winter for the Mid-Atlantic region, and homeowners are getting ready early.

“After last year, people living in the Mid-Atlantic are worried about the potential costs associated with another snowy winter,” said Gutter Helmet Systems owner Del Thebaud, “and many of our customers are signing up now to get Helmet Heat installed before the snow and ice arrive.”

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
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.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
