Residential Pipe Tracing, Roof Heat and Gutter Trace
Pipe freeze prevention can be a valuable addition to some residential structures. Depending on how well pipes are protected from extreme winter temperatures, some pipes may need the added protection of heat trace cable to prevent ruptures due to extreme winter temperatures. Many homeowners enjoy the benefits of using heat tracing for gas and water lines. A ruptured water line can cause costly damages, not to mention put you out of your home until the damage is fixed. Pipe tracing is a simple and inexpensive investment that will prolong the life of your home’s pipes and prevent pipe freezing.
Typically, one method of combating freezing pipes in residential buildings during the winter is to switch to an indoor water tank, which results in a limited water supply and rationing. However, these systems are costly, hard to maintain, and take up large amounts of space. But installing a pipe tracing system is an effective and efficient long term solution for preventing winter pipe freezing.

Self-Regulating Heat Cable
Pipe tracing systems use self-regulating parallel circuit, radiant heating cables to provide the most effective solution for basic freeze protection applications. The power output of the conductive core material increases or decreases in response to ambient temperature changes, making the cable safe and efficient. This effect occurs at every point along the length of the cable, thereby allowing the pipe tracing cable to adjust the power output to the varying conditions along the length of the pipe.
Because of the self-regulating properties of the heat cable, it can be overlapped without creating hot spots or causing a burn out within the heating element. The self-regulating functionality of the heat cable ensures maximum energy efficiency by producing heat only when and where it is needed.
