How To Freeze Protect A Boiler or Furnace Condensate Line with Self-regulating Heating Cable
An important but often overlooked characteristic of a high-efficiency heating system is the risk of a frozen condensate line. If a condensate line freezes, a heating system will eventually shut down and become unable to function causing freezing conditions in the building. Heat-Line manufactures heating cable systems that solve ice build-up issues in many types and sizes of pipes, including condensate lines.
Heat-Line self-regulating heating cable systems can be applied both internally or externally depending on the application requirements. In this video we look at how to prevent a condensate line from freezing using our Paladin for Pipe externally applied heating cable system.
Even though carbonic acid is present in condensate lines, an internal heating cable application is also possible with Heat-Line’s unique EXT-T system. Read more on how to internally freeze protect a condensate line on our blog post linked below.
