FlexHEAT Tape Kit
TruHeat's FlexHEAT Tape system is a next generation low voltage floor heating system making in-floor heating more energy efficient and easy to work with. Our revolutionary system is an ideal way to add even gentle heat to floors in kitchens, bathrooms, family rooms, sunrooms, or any other surrounding. Thinner than a credit card, the FlexHEAT's aluminum alloy heating tape system will not raise the floor height, and often times there is no need for self-levelers or other messy mortars for floating floors which can can be installed directly on top. In addition, the ultra flexible heating tape allows the heating system to be installed even in the most unusual shaped rooms.
Features & Benefits
INSTALLED DIRECTLY UNDER ALL TYPES OF FLOORS
LOW VOLTAGE SAFETY
EVEN HEAT DISTRIBUTION
The FlexHEAT Tape system covers up to 70% of the floor and the heating tape runs are packed together at minimum distances apart, thus requiring less energy to heat up the floor and the gaps between the tape runs. Having this larger surface area results in less energy required to heat the floor
SIMPLE & EASY TO INSTALL
Simply plan out the area to be heated, select a central location for the transformer box and start laying the heat tape.
MINIMAL POWER CONSUMPTION
The FlexHEAT Tape system only uses 7 watts per sqft. while traditional wire based systems use 12-15 watts/sqft.
ULTRA FLEXIBLE HEATING ELEMENT
USE AS A PRIMARY HEAT SOURCE
Since the FlexHEAT Tape system covers more of the floor area, this means the entire room can be heated using the system from the ground up evenly without needing an additional source to heat the room.
How Does It Work?
What sets the FlexHEAT Tape system apart from other loose lay wire systems is our patented aluminum alloy heating tape. The tape is a miniscule 0.5 mm in thickness and comes in a variety of widths ranging from 6-12 cm (depending on the kit). Low voltage current is passed through the heating tape using a step down transformer which allows the heating tape to start working efficiently and effectively.

The system does not need to run 24 hours a day in order to keep the floor/room warm. Typically, it is ideal to have a running time of about 8 hours a day for the system. With TruHeat system's programmable thermostat the control is always in your hands on how long to keep the system on for.
