De-Icing Cables

North Shore Electric is the leader in design and installation of de-icing systems. We install a reliable, efficient, easy to use gutter and roof de-icing system using only proven quality heating cables.

There are many grades and quality of cables available today, in fact, there are huge differences.

The least expensive cable on the market today is the "Constant Wattage" cable available at any home center. While the cost might be low up front, these cables are the least efficient. They run at full wattage all the time they are on. They cannot come in contact with each other, which is often necessary and if they do they will burn out and they typically only last a few years. A temporary fix at best.

Self-Regulating (SR) cables are of a higher quality. They vary the wattage along the length of the cable based on the ambient temperature outside making them longer lasting with increased energy efficiencies. These cables can come in contact with each other with no harm to the cable and they have a much more durable, heavy duty jacket that will stand up to the most extreme elements on your roof and in your gutters.

But not all SR cables are treated equally.

With many years of proven reliable service, North Shore Electric uses a higher grade Heat Trace Self-Regulating de-icing cable that not only is a tough commercial grade cable but backed by a manufacturer's 10 Year limited Warranty.

North Shore Electric takes the guess work out of the installation and provides a complete, safe and long lasting system. Call for more information and to schedule an evaluation for your home or building today.
