Valor’s unique HeatShift™ system transfers convective heat upwards through hidden ducts and directs it back into the room, completely bypassing walls and surface areas around the fireplace. Enjoy the peace of mind that surrounding walls, artwork, electronics and construction materials stay cool and are protected.
Heatshift elevates heat naturally using gravity and Valor product ingenuity—no need to use electricity or a fan.
A raised heat outlet improves convection airflow and circulates air back into the room at a higher elevation, reducing wall temperatures and improving overall performance.
Run heat sensitive finishing materials right up to the fireplace surround, including drywall, wood, tile, and stone. Install mantels at a one-to-one ratio of depth to height from the fireplace surround when using HeatShift.
Unlike many competitors’ products in the field, HeatShift uses standard construction techniques that comply with code requirements across North America.
Designed and built in North America, specifically for North American homes.
Find the perfect design for your home with three unique installation options. Available on LT, LX, Linear, H6, H5 and H3 gas fireplaces.
A front wall outlet featuring a 38" (LDK4) or 48" (LDK1) plenum that can be painted to match your room design.
Position the grilles on two side walls (LDK3) to maintain a clean wall front, and paint them to match your room design.
Hide the system behind a wall valance (LDK7) while still maintaining the perfect balance of radiant and convective heat.
Provides a clean finish up to a required clearance of 2-1/2" from the ceiling. Heat is distributed from this opening and back into the room.
Allows a finish right up to the ceiling by using a single front-facing grille to feed the radiant heat back into the room.
H3 Gas Fireplace
The H3 Gas Fireplace uses a unique HeatShift kit to maximize radiant heat, while keeping surrounding walls cool.
The H3 is a smaller fireplace compared to the H5, H6, or Linear models and will use a unique HeatShift setup in comparison.
The H3 gas fireplace is now compatible with th 30" HeatShift plenum with 4" collars, that can be finished with the 30" frame. Please be aware that 30" plenum is the only HeatShift option available for use with the H3 if HeatShift is to be implemented. There are no valance or sidewall options available.
The upgrades provide even more design flexibility for the H3 than ever before while still providing one of the most beautiful fires on the market.
HeatShift™ is an ideal feature when adding heat sensitive materials directly above the fireplace, such as a wall-mounted TV. Learn more about the system, as well as how it integrates with other heat management features with your Valor gas fireplace.
Looking to heat other areas in your home? Valor's Remote Blower option (1270RBK) provides distribution of heat to other areas of your home such as bedrooms, hallways or utility rooms. We refer to this as multi-zone heating.
The Remote Blower connects directly to both 38" and 48" Front Wall Plenums, moving heat to separate spaces in the home for multi-zone heat management.
