Creating one of the most comfortable and economical heating systems available, our Earth Thermal Storage Electric Radiant Heating System is an under-concrete slab (sometimes called “under-floor”, “in-ground” and “ground storage”) heating system installed in soil or sand under a concrete slab building foundation.
The result is that the ground underneath becomes an efficient, large mass of stored thermal energy. It’s the same principle as the earth’s core.
The system is charged (energized) when less expensive off-peak electric rates are in effect or to shift peak demand to quieter periods. The stored energy is only released when the area above it becomes cool. Otherwise the radiant heat remains where it is so there is no wasted energy.
The system is protected from mechanical harm, corrosive chemicals, and moisture. Even the most hazardous areas can be safely and economically heated.
Technology + Off-Peak Electrical Rates = Tremendous Energy Savings
Earth Thermal Storage is perfect for basements, slab-on-grade construction, solariums and sun rooms, industrial buildings, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, aircraft maintenance hangars, malls and car and truck facilities.
Installation is fast and easy, providing warmth with no hot spots or drafts. The system is clean, creating no smoke or soot. And it doesn’t take up valuable floor space.
Ray Stoodley, Lead Electrical Engineer for Bay Newplan Group Ltd., Newfoundland, Canada worked on Melville Hospital’s Earth Thermal Storage installation.
“Earth Thermal Storage System is easy to install and well-suited to maximum demand control. Operating the system is a simple matter of turning it on in off-peak times then using the energy you store during expensive periods. We’re talking days’ worth of storage so the money you save is enormous! There’s no equivalent to the Earth Thermal Storage System.”
