Heat Tracing Cable can protect your roof and gutters
from damage from snow and ice buildup on the edges of your home eaves.
WinterGard Wet heat tracing cable is ideal heat tape for protecting the
roof of your home from damage. The same high quality heating cable can be
used on exposed water pipes to protect them from freezing, too. The outer
protective layer is waterproof and the layers of heat trace cable
construction all keep your heat tracing cable in good condition longer.
H612 WinterGard Heat Tape is waterproof heat tracing cable, for roofs and gutters, as well as for water pipes that are exposed to freezing temps.
120V Electronic Temperature Control Electronic Temperature Control unit has a temperature differential range of 1 Degree F to 30 Degrees F. Unit can control temperatures from -30F to 220F, however you will not need the range capabilities of this control for use with heat tape for on your roof or on water pipes.
Thermo Cube is a device which plugs into a standard GFI protected 120V AC outlet to automatically control turning power on and off for heat tape or stock tank heaters. By plugging the device into the Thermo Cube, when the air temperature reaches 35 degrees F, the Thermo Cube will turn on the power. When the Air temperature gets up to 45 degrees F, the power will turn off. This makes your heat tape more efficient to operate, since you are not having to run the power all the time. According to the manufacturer, you can use the Thermo Cube to control heat tape or stock tank heaters that are rated up to 1800 watts maximum or 15 amps total on 120V GFI protected circuits.
TC3 is 3-1/4" wide and 1-3/8" high and 1" thick, and has place for two 3 prong plugs to plug into it.

DEAN BENNETT SUPPLY
The Raychem WinterGard Wet heat tracing cable is a professional grade 6 watt per foot, self regulating electric heat cable. H612 WinterGard Wet heat tracing cable is designed to protect water pipes from freezing, and to protect roof and gutter deicing in light commercial and residential locations. The electrical heat tracing cables are constructed of nickel-copper bus wires, a self regulating conductive core, and an insulating jacket, a tinned-copper braid and an outer polyolefin jacket. The benefits of using Raychem WinterGard Wet self regulating heat cable are:
The WinterGard Wet heating cable can be overlapped without burning itself out.
The WinterGard Wet H612 heating cable can be cut to length.
The jacket on the WinterGard Wet heating cable is waterproof making it great for use in wet locations.
The H612 WinterGard Wet heating trace cable
will not overheat roofing materials or plastic gutter materials.

WinterGard WET 120V 6 watt per foot heat tape is
used to keep snow and ice from building up on eave troughs and roof
How to design your roof and gutter deicing
Calculate the length of heat tape needed. Take the number of feet of roof edge times the figure from the chart below. Add the total length of the gutter and down spout. Add 1' for the power connector.
Example: Overhang of
12", roof edge of 70' with 40' gutter and 15' of down spout. The
12" overhang calls for 2' of roof heating tape cable for every foot of roof
edge, so 70' x 2 = 140' plus 40' for the gutter length, equals 180' of roof
heating cable, plus 15' of down spout equals 195'. Since we are over the maximum
length allowed on one circuit, we must split this into 2 heating circuits.
Assuming your system will start protecting when the temperature drops below 40
degrees F, we can make one roof heat cable on a 20 amp breaker circuit, and the
second roof heat cable on a 15 amp breaker circuit. The roof edge calculated to
140' of roof heating cable plus 1' for the power connection, so we will make
this the 20 amp circuit which could have been a maximum of 150' in total cable
length. The second heating tape cable can be on a 15 amp circuit because it is
shorter than 125', since the gutter is 40', plus 15' of down spout, and 1' for
the power connector plus 3' for a tee splice for a down spout, or a total of 59'
of gutter and down spout heating tape cable.
TO OUR STOCK
WinterGard Wet 230V heating cable is a
professional-grade, 6 watt per foot, self-regulating electrical heat cable that
can be used to protect pipe from freezing, or can be used for roof deicing. The
heating cable has a construction of nickel-copper bus wires, a self-regulating
conductive core, an insulated jacket, a tinned copper braid and an outer jacket
of polyolefin. There are several advantages to the Wintergard wet
self-regulating heat tape. It can be overlapped, you can cut it to length
without burn out, it saves energy and it will not overheat roofing material or
gutters when used to deice your roof.
