Heating Cable Controls, Thermostat or Timer
Hello and welcome to the December 2017 Heat-Line Vlog.
When prospective customers first inquire about Heat-Line systems they are surprised to find out that thermostats are NOT required to operate our product, but can be purchased as an additional energy efficiency device.
Why would Heat-Line systems not require a thermostat?
- Heat-Line systems do not require a high limit device to prevent overheating. All Heat-Line brand self-regulating heating cable systems can safely operate without a thermostat control and without the worry of burning out or melting the pipe, even if the pipe is dry!
- Thermostats do not work in every application as the required thermostat sensor cannot always be installed in the correct place. In applications where thermostats cannot be installed Heat-Line products have the unique ability to work solely with timers. So every application needs to be reviewed on a case by case basis to determine the proper control device.
Listen to December's video blog and learn directly from a Heat-Line specialist about the choice of installing a control and whether a timer and or thermostat is a better option.
