Valor HeatShift™ Technology
The Right Heat, In The Right Place
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.
- Reduces wall temperatures above fireplace - ideal if placing a wall mounted TV or heat sensitive materials.
- Run combustible finishing materials right up to the fireplace surround - maximizing installation opportunities.
- Excess warm air is circulated back into the room at a higher elevation - improving overall performance.
- Up to 60% of fireplace heat rises and flows through the HeatShift System and back into the room.
- Heat is elevated naturally using gravity and Valor product ingenuity.
- No reliance on electricity or a noisy fan operation.
- Sleek heat outlet or hidden wall valance - providing heat distribution back into the living space.
- Easily paint the plenums or grilles to match your design style.
