As technologies advance, more homes and buildings are being heated by efficient and quiet radiant heat.
alCove cove heaters are leading that trend.
alCove heaters are installed high on the wall, close to the ceiling, and heat the objects in a room in much the same way as the sun heats the earth and the air outside, maintaining an extremely comfortable, constant temperature. As objects in the room become warm, the surrounding air picks up heat by conduction and the entire room maintains consistently comfortable.
Cove heaters combine the quick comfort of radiant heat along with the sustained warmth of convection heat and warm air is uniformly dispersed throughout the room requiring a much lower temperature to achieve the same level of heat transfer Rooms feel warmer at lower temperatures, saving homeowners money and reducing energy waste.
You feel warmer because the heat is delivered where you live—down towards the floor. Since all surfaces in the room are also being heated, there are no cold objects to draw heat from you which could make you feel cold. Radiant cove heaters do not blow dust and allergens around and provide healthier humidity levels.
Safe and non-intrusive, tucked up high in a room’s alcove space, so there is no concern of furniture, drapes or children touching the heat source. The space saving design eliminates furniture placement problems that are the typical head-ache of other heaters mounted at floor level. Additionally, with no moving parts this heater is quiet and maintenance free.
Since alCove cover heaters are mounted near the ceiling, this saves valued space, eliminates furniture placement problems that is the typical head-ache of baseboard heaters. In addition, you feel warmer because the heat is delivered where you live—down towards the floor.
Stepping outside into the sunshine is a feeling people never forget. alCove radiant cove heaters heat the objects in a room like the sun heats the earth and the air outside, maintaining an extremely comfortable, constant temperature.
When you stand in the shade, even though the air temperature is the same, we feel warmer in the sun, and that is similar to how alCove radiant heat works.
As a result, the thermostat can be turned down in a room and the room will still maintain a comfortable environment at even lower money-saving temperature settings.
According to the United States Department of Energy, for every degree of temperature reduction below 70 degrees you save 3 percent, therefore, even reducing the temperature by 5 degrees will equal 15 percent savings.
Because alCove heaters are non-intrusive, tucked up high in a room’s alcove space, there is no concern of furniture, drapes or children coming in contact with the heating source. alCove products are engineered to keep safety in mind and operate at safer temperatures than baseboard heaters. Plus alCove heaters are safety tested by Underwriters Laboratories.
Traditional heat sources typically only heat the air, which does not retain heat well and temperatures can fluctuate excessively in a home heated with forced air furnaces and hot air baseboards. This not only wastes energy; it also creates an unpleasant environment in which to live.
alCove heaters heat the objects in a room, as well as the air and are then able to maintain an extremely comfortable, constant temperature since all surfaces in the room are also being heated.
When used as part of a zone-based heating system, alCove heaters will lower your annual heating costs. By installing cove heaters in every room, you can easily heat only the areas in use and conserve energy. Zone-based systems are controlled using a programmable thermostat, meaning you can program a heating schedule to heat where you want, when you want. This offers an energy saving alternative to keeping the forced air heating system running throughout the entire house, reducing overall energy consumption.
