Roof Heating Cables

I have recently installed heat cables on the roof of my house, now what? When do you turn them on or off? What are the guidelines? Thanks in advance.

I have them along the north side of my house. I plug them in when it is close to thawing or slightly above. That way as the snow melts it will have a place to drain away and not back up under the shingles. I don't keep it plugged in other than that.
