There is absolutely nothing that can compete with the TruHeat low voltage underfloor heating system. While the typical way to provide electric floor heating is to use high voltage cables which consume way too much energy and also bring the risk of electrical hazards. With the TruHeat system there are no wires to worry about and this means not only is our system safer, it also uses a fraction of the energy compared to wire based systems. How much less energy does the TruHeat system uses compared to cable based systems you ask? See for yourselves below in our comparison study. 

Based on a 100 sqft. coverage area test, the TruHeat system consumes considerably less power compared to the most popular electric heating systems out there. Not to mention the TruHeat system is the only system to not only use less Watts/Sq. Ft but also uses low voltage which makes it safer to use over the other systems. The TruHeat system also reduces installation costs since there is no need for a plastic membrane as used with the cable systems. This truly makes the TruHeat system a truly smarter way to heat your floors and not to mention the more affordable way as well.

What sets the TruHeat system apart from all other systems is our patented TruHeat tape the system uses. The TruHeat tape is an aluminum alloy heating element which is 0.5 mm in thickness and 6-12 cm in width. Low voltage current is passed through the TruHeat tape to start working efficiently and effectively. Several advantages can be had by choosing the TruHeat system over the traditional floor heating systems. Read below to see how choosing the TruHeat system is truly the smarter way to heat


The TruHeat system takes high voltage and steps it down to low voltage to minimize power consumption. Therefore, while all cable based systems use 12 watts/sqft on average, the TruHeat system uses 5-7 watts/sqft on average ensuring long term savings to the end user.


Unlike other floor heating systems, the TruHeat system can also be used as a primary heat source for any room setting. This allows users to heat the room evenly from the ground up without having to use other heat sources which means additional energy savings.


The traditional wire based systems use a thin copper wires which means these wires need to be heated at high temperatures to compensate the gap between them and achieve sufficient heat output. The TruHeat system's heating element uses low voltage to heat up and since the heating element is much wider than the wires there is absolutely no need to use high temperatures to achieve efficient heat output. In fact, due to low voltage utilization the TruHeat system underfloor heating system operates at temperatures of 28 – 30°C (82– 86°F). The temperature of floor covering generally does not exceed 26°C (79°F) which makes it absolutely comfortable even for young children.


Copper wires which are used in the cable systems are susceptible to oxidization over time and should there be damage to any part of the cable, it renders the entire system useless. This issue is non-existent when it comes to the TruHeat system. The TruHeat tape is tear resistant, meaning even if the tape is punctured, the system will still function with no issues. In addition, the TruHeat tape is guaranteed to work for 50 years.


Hydronic systems are very complicated to install due to lots of moving parts, requiring tons of maintenance, danger of leakage and the risk of jamming. Cable based systems require tons of additional labour with installation of plastic membrane, and covering the system with thinset. With the TruHeat system, installation is a breeze because the TruHeat tape can be laid down with simple planning and any type of finished floor can go directly on top of it. Click here to see installation methods.
