Take Control & Save

We want you to take control of your roof and gutter heat trace system. So we are funding a new incentive program aimed at improving the safety and efficiency of heat trace systems commonly applied on roofs and gutters by offering a free system controller valued at $380.

These systems are heating elements that are applied to gutters, valleys and eaves of roofs to prevent ice damage. Although they get the job done, more times than not, these types of systems often run when they aren’t needed, thereby wasting electricity. We want to help you create a safer, more efficient system with a state-of-the-art electrical controller. All you have to do is follow these steps. And of course if you have any questions, please call our Building Department at (970) 369-8251.

This incentive program is open until funds are exhausted, and is for Mountain Village homeowners only.


Hire a Colorado-licensed electrical contractor to inspect your heat trace system.

Ask your contractor to email the inspection report with suggested improvements to you and to our Building Department.

Our building official will review the report and contact you if it is determined that your home, based on the report’s findings, would benefit from improved controls. If it does, we will offer one free controller (valued at $380) for your electrical contractor to install.

Enjoy the savings. Using an estimated 25 amps and 230 volts supplying a heat trace system on a home without controls from November to March may cost you approximately $2,277 per zone. With the use of controls and a properly installed system, you may save 30- to 50-percent of electricity costs per winter, weather dependent.
