Why Does Your Home Need a Deicing System?

Icy roof

Here in Chicago, with the average snowfall being 36 inches per winter it’s imperative that you prepare for winter storms, and that your home is equipped to handle the storms as well. People who install deicing systems prior to Chicago’s winter season are able to prevent water damage, ice build up, and blistered paint all of which are all costly damages to repair. 

What Does a Deicing System Do? 

Here in the midwest where ice and snow storms are commonplace in the winter, you can expect your home to have ice blockages which will end up slowing the melting process. This allows the ice to get underneath your roof’s shingles, and cause water damage in your home. A deicing system is able to detect and melt snow and ice that would otherwise build up in your gutters, and melts the ice and snow so that there is enough space for the water to run down your gutters. This also prevents trapped water to ensure your house will not suffer from water damage.
