Steffes Heating Forced Air
During of-peak hours, the Comfort Plus unit converts electricity into heat and stores that heat in specially designed, high density ceramic bricks. Because of its large heat storage capacity, it has the ability to provide total comfort 24 hours a day using only low cost, off-peak electric rates resulting in very economical and affordable heating.
The Comfort Plus unit is easy to operate. The amount of heat stored in the brick core is automatically regulated in relation to outdoor temperature and the heating requirements of the user. When the room thermostat calls for heat, heat is extracted from the unit's storage core and is distributed evenly into the home until the heat call has been satisfied.
When used as the supplement or back-up to heat pump systems, you can be assured the heat pump’s efficiency is being fully utilized while complete comfort is being maintained.
With its high efficiency variable speed ECM blower you will enjoy consistent temperatures, quiet operation and improved air distribution and filtration throughout your home. In addition, because an ECM motor consumes less energy than a standard blower system, you will realize operating cost savings all year long.
The Comfort Plus unit offers great safety and reliability with minimal maintenance due to the many safety and comfort sensing devices that monitor the core, supply and discharge air temperatures of the system.
