Ice and Snow Melting for Roofs, Gutters, and Downspouts
How IceStop Systems Works
After melting, ice and snow can refreeze and form ice dams that prevent water from draining. On rooftops, this often leads to standing water, which can cause serious damage.
The IceStop system, with its self-regulating, low-wattage cable, provides a continuous draining path for melted ice and snow from the roof through the gutter and downspout. Since the IceStop system is self-regulating, it will automatically cut back its power output and save energy when the roof is dry or warm.
