Question on electrical requirements for De icing cables.
I am looking to install on a portion of my roof that receives no sun and the downspout, gutter ices up.
I was reviewing the installation instructions and they require a grounded outlet, GFCI protected and also a switch with a light indicator.
The GFCI sheet I have states:
3b. Changed back to ALL dwelling unit exterior outlets in 1996; except an outlet for snow melting equipment IF on a dedicated circuit and NOT readily
I was wondering what the NEC states for De icing equipment.
I am going to have my electrician wire it for me as I like the light indicator requirement.
Also, when doing an inspection do you observe De icing equipment or is this not part of the standards?
