FAQ's

IS IT EXPENSIVE TO MAIN THE FLEXHEAT TAPE SYSTEM?


No, the heating system does not need service or preventive maintenance after it has been installed. Besides the low power consumption, we have done everything possible to make having a radiant floor heating system as affordable than ever. This is why when calculating inputs to the heating system for your home for the next 10-15 years it turns out that TruHeat's heating systems are the most convenient and efficient solution in comparison with other heating systems.




HOW DO I CALCULATE THE NEEDED QUANTITY OF KITS FOR ALL THE ROOMS IN MY HOUSE?


The FlexHEAT tape system is sold in 7 different kits, which differ in terms of capacity and heating area. Each kit is equipped with its own thermostat so therefore each kit will create it's own heating zone. It is highly recommended to create a heat zone for each separate room to allow for greater control over what to heat and what not to heat. In case of having several open or walk-through rooms (for example, an entrance hall, corridor, living room), then it will be more cost efficient for you to install one of the bigger kits to cover as much square footage as possible. When selecting the kits from the pricing section of our website, please note to use the smaller number in the coverage range if planning on using the FlexHEAT system as a primary heat source. *Choose the right quantity of kits depending on your heating areas and needs.
