Icicles hanging off the eaves of your house may make your house look like a picturesque charming New England home, but they spell trouble. That’s because the same conditions that allows ice to form can also lead to ice dams. Thick solid ice that builds up along the eaves. Icicles and dams can loosen shingles, tear off gutters and cause water to back up into your home through the roof. Hott Topper is specifically designed to work in conjunction with Gutter Topper to eliminate the snow and ice buildup on top of your gutter protection. As the weather fluctuates, the icicles can begin to thaw and the water that drips onto sidewalks and driveways below can re-freeze and create a dangerous, slippery icy patch. Hott Topper will melt the ice and snow on top of your Gutter Topper, allowing the water to enter your gutter and thereby help to protect you from these liabilities. And with the heating element inside your gutter and downspout, the possibility of ice building up in the gutter and causing damage to your home, is virtually eliminated. Isn’t it time you enjoyed the winter season without worrying about the snow and ice buildup? Hott Topper is the cost effective solution to the problems winter can cause.
