The Right Heat, In The Right Location
Warming homes since 1890, Valor gas fireplaces are recognized as leaders in advanced heat management.
Recognizing homeowner needs and expectations is what separates Valor from the competition. Taking the concept of No Power, No Problem to the next level, Valor introduces a heat management system that redirects fireplace warmth to a higher elevation in the room.
Designed to reduce surface temperatures, the Valor HeatShift System™ is recommended, especially when adding a wall mounted TV or heat sensitive material directly above the fireplace. In essence, raising the heat outlet improves conventional airflow - reducing wall temperatures and improving overall performance. Excess warm air is then circulated back into the room at a higher elevation.
Traditionally, Valor fireplaces convect warmth through the fire box and back into the room. An impressive method to harness convective warmth, up to 60% of fireplace heat rises and flows through the Valor HeatShift System™ and back into the room. Compared to competitor alternatives that require electricity and a noisy fan for operation, heat is elevated naturally using gravity and Valor product ingenuity.
With heat transferred above, it is now possible to run non-combustible finishing materials right up to the fireplace surround. We have also incorporated a sleek heat outlet or hidden wall valance, which provides a clean surface for heat distribution back into the living space.
The Valor HeatShift System™ is also compatible with Valor’s Remote Blower Kit (1270RBK) option - designed to distribute warmth to other spaces in your home like utility rooms, hallways or basements.
Another Valor first, HeatShift System™ increases installation opportunities, promotes the convection of warmth and accommodates wall finishes with heat sensitive materials.
