Anybody Have Roof/Gutter De-icing Cables Installed?
The horse is out of the barn for this winter, but-- now that roof raking is almost a daily routine here, I've been looking at heating cables for ice dams and gutter thawing. I've read that some people place the cables on the roof as well as the in the gutters and downspouts. Other folks have said that if the cables are on the roof full time and your have squirrels, that you're better off just putting the cables in the gutters and downspouts. Anyone here have any experience or advice on this subject? Thanks.
