Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction System: The Proven Ice Dam Solution

Helmet Heat by Gutter Helmet is an exclusive self-regulating heating cable designed to keep ice and snow from building up around the edges of your roof.

How It Works


Helmet Heat reduces ice by melting snow before it has a chance to accumulate at your roof eaves and affect the flow of water through your gutters and downspouts. In this way, the damage is averted.

Features & Benefits

Benefits of having a Helmet Heat system installed on your home include:

– Energy efficiency
– Self-regulation
– Safety
– Clean installation
– Material efficiency
– Full compatibility with the Gutter Helmet system


Together, Gutter Helmet and Helmet Heat deliver an unbeatable one-two punch against ice and frozen gutters.


Helmet Heat is installed directly under Gutter Helmet gutter covers, without visible roof clips or exposed wire. It can be mounted on any home that uses the Gutter Helmet gutter protection system.

Operating Instructions

Once the Helmet Heat system is installed on your home, all you need to do is switch it on or off at the recommended times via dedicated heat cable breaker(s) or with a dedicated light switch. Any build-up that has already formed may be knocked off manually to expedite thawing.
