Hi Mary, Thank you for your question. Heaters are third party equipment and we do not have any particular recommendations.

Looks like they have another brand called Ice Zapper. Might want to contact them but the claim is that they work well with Exede.

Alternately, look for an authorized Exede dealer in your area who might have some recemmendations and experience with them. Use your ZipCode over at:
