Roof De-icing Systems for Metal Standing Seam Roofs

Keeping roofs clear of snow and ice can be essential for homeowners and businesses with metal standing seam roofs. Once the sun warms the roof, heavy sheets of snow and ice can slide off the roof, posing a danger to pedestrians below. Adding a roof de-icing system to a metal standing seam roof can be a very effective method for keeping roof edges and valleys clear of snow and ice buildup, and preventing ice dams. But heating a metal roof must be done properly. One of the industry's safest and most effective roof de-icing systems for keeping standing seam roofs clear of snow and ice is the low-voltage RoofHeat™ STEP® system.

Various types of heat trace cable can also be installed to facilitate runoff and prevent ice dams from forming. Several of the industry's most recommended roof de-icing solutions are available from Warmzone, including self-regulating heat cable, constant wattage heat trace cable, and SnoFree™ aluminum panel systems. Warmzone also includes premium customer services with each roof heating system, including free installation training, professional system design, and live installation support.

Roof De-icing System Controller Options

Warmzone carries a wide range of the industry’s top roof de-icing system controls. Whether you’re looking to operate your roof heating system manually, or want it to be fully automated, Warmzone has the ideal controller / thermostat for you. Our radiant heat experts are be happy to review the available options with you and recommend the best components for your system.

The low-voltage roof heating system (RoofHeat STEP) uses transformers (power units) that control specific sections of the roof de-icing system. The small transformers monitor the power and output of the heating element, and step down high voltage to low voltage (60 V or less) to ensure safe, optimal de-icing performance. The ideal controller for the low-voltage system is the sleek, easy-to-use TOUCH thermostat. The clean, simple two-control design and auto-dimmable LED display with touch sensor controls make this a favorite among homeowners. The unit is designed to interface with an external temperature sensor.

The most recommended activation device for self-regulating heat cable de-icing systems is the WS-8C activation device (snow sensor). This advanced sensor features a rugged NEMA 3R enclosure rated for outdoor use, and features a remote precipitation sensor with a 10-foot cable. This way the sensor can be installed in the roof gutter while the activation device is mounted in a more convenient location.

Manual control options and several roof heating accessories are also available from Warmzone. Call a roof de-icing expert today to learn more about the available controls, and which would be best for your roof heating system. Call us today at 888-488-9276.
