Our blog on Roof and Gutter Heating Cable
|Even in below freezing weather, snow on the roof will often thaw because of heat from the sun and heat loss from the house through the roof. As this melted snow reaches the roof overhang it refreezes.
Here there is no heat loss so the roof surface is much colder. As this melted snow refreezes again and again on the roof overhang, an ice dam is formed. Soon water backs up under
shingles, and leaks into the house.
EASYHEAT® ADKS roof de-icing cable prevents water and ice damage by providing a clear path for melting water. It keeps roof edges, gutters and downspouts ice-free. Versatile design adapts to most roof and gutter configurations.
It's not those big icicles that do the real damage, it's the ice you don't see that backs up in gutters and under shingles. When the ice melts it can really do a number on repair costs. Easy Heat ADKS roof de-icing cable prevents this water and ice damage by providing a clear path for melting water to flow off the roof. The versatile design adapts to most roof and gutter configurations.
ADKS-500 Cable (100 feet, 500 watts)
|This product is intended for the sole use of preventing ice dams from forming on inclined roofs with tab shingles, in gutters and downspouts. (Not for use on metal roofs because of the risk of overheating, use self-regulating cable instead such as PSR, or the Danfoss RX). This roof de-icing cable is not intended for use as a snow melting system to clear roof of ice and snow. This system can be installed with confidence that it will operate for years without requiring service. All components are made of the highest quality material and are tested during critical points in the manufacturing process.|
|Each ADKS kit
includes the Electric Roof De-icing Cable (Residential Grade, 120 Volt, 5 Watts/foot)
and 6 foot power cord with plug and enough roof clips
and cable spacers to complete the installation.

||The cable should be installed over the
unheated portion of the roof (E in Fig. 1) - normally the roof area above the
To design how much cable is needed, multiply the length of the roof edge that you want cable on by the following spacing factor:
|If your roof overhang is:||Overhang Multiplier:||If your roof overhang is:||Overhang Multiplier:|
The overhang multiplier is the length of cable required per foot of roof length. Note: Multiplier shown includes 1 foot of gutter cable for each foot of roof edge. If cable is not installed in gutter, subtract 1.0 from the overhang multiplier.
Dimensions you will need:
Cable Installation Patterns:
|Add this number calculated
above to the length of the downspout. (A in Figure 2). Note: If a
downspout is located anywhere other than at the end of the cable routing, that
downspout will require double length of cable (B in Figure 2). Add extra
cable for valleys (6' per valley, C in Figure 2) and around dormers (D in Figure 2)
Example: 28 feet of roof, 24" overhang (therefore using overhang multiplier of 5.3), 1 downspout @ 10' at end of cable run, 1 valley, 1 dormer with 30' perimeter.
Cable length = (28 x 5.3) + 10 + 6 + 30 = 194.4 feet. Select ADKS-1000 which is 200 feet since it is the closest to 194.4 feet. Excess cable can be used in the valley or downspout. The de-icing cable cannot be cut or altered, doing so voids the warranty, and once cut it cannot be repaired.

Optional RS-2 Roof Cable Deicing Control
Control expense and energy use in electric roof cable protection automatically with Roof Sentry (RS-2). The RS-2 requires two conditions to be present before it energizes roof deicing cable: cold temperatures (ON, 38°F; OFF, 48°F) and the presence of runoff water from the roof in contact with its sensor wire. If only one of the conditions exists, the control will not energize the cable.
