Snow covered roof with icicles

Protecting Salt Lake City Homes From the Elements Since 1977

Cold air trapped in between your walls could potentially freeze the water pipes in your home. It happens more frequently than you’d think, with roof ice, snow, and other materials clogging rain gutters. Problems from freezing pipes may even cause them to burst, resulting in possible water damage and mildew. Not only is this a significant inconvenience, but it’s also a considerable unexpected expense.

As you brace yourself for the bitter cold months of winter by applying the needed preventative measures, make sure you are thinking about the safety of your pipes as well.

Installing heat tape ice melt systems around your plumbing helps you maintain the optimal temperature of the pipes’ contents and keep the pipes from freezing. In addition, heat cables can prevent ice dams from forming on your roof.

ESCO has the best innovative heating solutions for your entire home. We’re proud to help Utah residents prevent frozen pipes and resulting water damage throughout the winter. Contact our heat cable and heat tape installation experts in Salt Lake City to schedule your service appointment.

Prevent dangerous icicles

Why Salt Lake City Homes Need Heat Cable & Heat Tape

Utah winters are long and cold, and the impact from this harsh climate can have chilling results on your home. That’s why we believe heat tape and heat cable are essential for the long-term protection of the inner workings of your Salt Lake City property. Heat tape and heat cable benefits include:

  • Frozen pipe prevention
  • Elimination of ice dam formation on the roof and in the gutters
  • Improved gutter efficiency
  • Defense against potential water damage and mildew build-up

Should the Heat Tape & Heat Cable in Your Salt Lake City Home Be Replaced?

These ice melting applications don’t have a long shelf life, and damaged heat tape or heat cables are potential fire hazards. That’s why it’s crucial to make a habit of inspecting your heat cable or heat tape every fall.

To do so, follow these simple steps:

  1. Unplug the heat cable or heat tape.
  2. Check for any cracks, bare wires, or charred insulation.
  3. Call an ESCO expert if you find any problems. Don’t attempt DIY repairs or continue use.
  4. Schedule replacement services.

Our heating experts are glad to assist you if you’re unsure about the condition of your ice-melt systems. In addition, ESCO provides safe heat cable and heat tape installation for Salt Lake City homes.

Meanwhile, if your home is currently without an ice-melt system, call our technicians to evaluate your property. They’ll recommend the best solution for you while keeping efficiency, safety, and comfort in mind.

What’s the Difference Between Heat Cable & Heat Tape?

Homeowners often request heat tape when they need a heat cable, and vice versa. To eliminate this confusion, we’re happy to provide an explanation of how each ice-melt system works.

Heat Cable

Heat trace cables use electricity to produce warm temperatures on roofs, gutters, water pipes, and other areas. Heating cables, while still bendable, are significantly stiffer than heat tape.

Heat Tape

Heat tape is highly flexible and ideal for crooked pipes or tight contours. Plus, it’s available in fixed lengths and can often reach higher temperatures than heat trace cables.

Application & Usage

You can utilize both items to warm your water pipes during the winter to prevent them from freezing. However, heat tape is better suited for interior application while roof heating cable kits are suitable for preventing exterior ice dam formation.

Furthermore, both ice-melt systems are available in self-regulating versions that are specially crafted not to rise above a given temperature. As a result, self-regulating heating cables and heat tape are less likely to burn out or overheat.
