ETS Heating Units
Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) is clean, safe, comfortable and reliable method of heating a home or office. This heating choice is growing in popularity in North America because it is 100% efficient and provides consumers with warm, cozy heat and significant savings. ETS room heating units store heat during off-peak hours.
Off-peak hours are those times during the day or night when your power company can supply you with electricity more economically. By utilizing ETS in your home, your power company shares this saving with you through an a lower off-peak heating rate or a time of use (TOU) rate.
During off-peak hours, ETS units convert electricity into heat and store that heat in specially designed high-density ceramic bricks. These bricks are capable of storing vast amounts of heat for extended periods of time. This stored heat is circulated evenly and quietly by fans in the unit as the room thermostat calls for heat.
The ETS equipment is easy to operate. The amount of heat stored in the brick core of the heater is regulated (either manually or automatically) according to seasonal weather conditions. The room temperature thermostat is set to your desired comfort level and will control the delivery of heat from the ETS unit.
