Hot Shot 18-22" Satellite Dish Heater Kit (HS18NGRFKIT)Hotshot
The HS18NGRFKIT satellite dish heater by Hot Shot is the all-in-one solution for keeping ice and snow from building up your satellite dish. The satellite dish heater works by a thermostat built into the heating element itself. When the temperature reaches just above freezing, the heating element will turn on and provide heat to the surface of the dish then will turn off when the dish has reached a warm enough temperature to shed the offending snow and ice.
Installation is simple enough for any weekend handyman.
Heater fits on Dish type(s):
- Directv 18" (on back side)
- Directv 18x20 (on back side)
- Dish 1000.2 (on back side)
- Any dish larger that has a reflector larger than 20" in diameter (on front side)
The bolt holes of the HS18NGRFKIT are made to line up with the Directv reflector patterns. For all other dishes, the heater can be placed on the front and will only have a nominal signal loss. The element is 17.75" x 19.25" and can be rotated to fit in the vertical or horizontal position on the front of most dish types.
