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.
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). 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.
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.
Optional Extra Clips and Spacers: Extra roof cable clips and cable spacers (enough are already included with each ADKS kit to complete the installation, but extra can be ordered).
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.
