Raychem cables are "Self Regulating" heating cables. The unique cable design allows the cable to use only the amount of heat (wattage) required. Costing you less money to operate.
Cheaper cables are "Constant Heat" (wattage) cables continually supplying the same amount of heat rather needed or not. Costing you more money to operate.
Raychem cable's unique parallel design allow them to work even if they get a break in the cable. Raychem cables can also be repaired.
Cheaper cables, like a string of Christmas tree lights fail if they get a break in the line and will need to be replaced.
Raychem cables can be overlapped without damage to the heat tape but if damage did occur, they can be repaired. "Constant Heat" cable cannot be overlapped as they will over heat and fail and they cannot be repaired.
Your property is probably the biggest capitol asset you have, protect it with Raychem heat tape.
