ELECTRIC THERMAL STORAGE Units
“ETS” is a heating technology designed to store electric heat during the OFF-PEAK hours of the day when electricity costs are cheaper, saving you money.
A super-insulated storage cavity containing ceramic bricks is charged (heated) to approximately 1,400°F and is stored for use during the ON-PEAK hours of the day when electricity costs are higher.
A fan forces air over the heated bricks sending the warm air into the room throughout the day; keeping your room at a comfortable temperature and using a minimal amount of electricity. AND the ETS unit surface temperature will not harm or burn when touched and is safe for children to be near.
