Heater Hoodie from American Heated Gutter Systems, Inc. Eliminates icicles and ice dams from forming.


American Heated Gutter Systems incorporates Roof and Gutter De-icing Cables into their gutter systems.
Their website is at www.stopbigice.com




They can install a self-contained heated gutter system that will protect your home and save money!  They are located in some of the biggest snow belt areas in the USA (Erie, PA, Buffalo, NY and Cleveland, OH)

As homeowners know all too well, it is difficult to keep traditional gutters free of debris and ice and finding an alternative resolution can be a pricey proposition. Their Heater Hoodie® custom one of kind gutter system was specifically designed for climates with heavy snowfall and major ice build-up. It is uniquely different from just a heating wire or deicing cable on the roof; the thermostatically controlled heating elements are positioned within the aluminum hood, into the gutter and down the downspouts to continuously melt the snow and ice to move the water away from the foundation of your home.



The heating cables require a licensed electrician to install a designated covered exterior outlet. The heated gutter can be installed on any roof design -- shingled, slate, metal or rubber.

Introducing OJ Electronics Type ETO2 Control & Sensors System for Ice & Snow Melting

We are very impressed with OJ Electronics powerful, highly capable new controls:


OJ Electronics Type ETO2 Control & Sensors System for Ice & Snow Melting


Energy efficient control of ice and snow melting - Type ETO2

An intelligent all-in-one solution for ice and snow melting usable for all applications within hydronic as well as electrical heating.

Optimal operation is ensured due to output control which makes the system both effective and economical.
ETO2 offers you the possibility of snow melting - the green way.


Features


  • Electronic on/off control up to 11 KW


  • 2 zone control, individually controlled at the same time


  • Economical control - minimizing energy consumption


  • Adjustable moisture sensitivity


  • Detection of temperature and moisture


  • Display and "knob wheel" for easy programming


  • Control of electrical or waterbased ice and snow melting systems


  • Language options



Green Comfort - Save 66% CO2
Thermostat functions ensuring minimal energy comsumption

Using readings from temperature and moisture sensors, the controller ensures economical control of power consumptions when keeping outdoor areas and roofs free of ice and snow. The moisture sensor is installed in the surface of the outdoor area or placed in the gutter. As soon as moisture is detected, the ETO2 controller activates the snow melting system.
Once the sensor has dried out, the thermostat immediately goes in afterrun and the system will continue to provide heat for a chosen time.

For Gutters - ETO2-4550, ETOR-55 and ETF-744/99:
The sensor type ETOR is designed for mounting in gutters and down pipes etc. ETOR detects moisture, while ETF detects temperature.

For Outdoor areas - ETO2-4550 and ETOG-55 is used:
The sensor type ETOG is designed for embedding into the surface of the outdoor area. ETOG detects ground temperature and moisture. The air sensor type ETF-744/99 can be used for measuring rapidly temperature decreases.

Remote control:
It is possible to control the ETO2 from an external signal (day/week timer, GSM-module or other signal source) The ETO2 can be switched on/off (standby) and the heating system can be forced on, in the after run time that has been set in the menu.
