Advantages of Radiant Heat
A lot of people wonder, what makes a Valor fireplace different than all of the others out there? Some might think it’s the unique looks of our fires, some might attribute the fronts and accessories, but the real stand out is Radiant Heat Technology. Regarded as the most comfortable and healthiest form of heating, radiant heating can be used for both heating indoor and outdoor areas. The basis of radiant heat is the sun itself – like the sun’s rays, radiant heat moves in straight lines warming all objects in its path which, in turn, act as small heat convectors and multiply the warmth.
Valor’s unique burner technology maximizes the radiant output of the fires for a natural, soothing warmth that will keep you comfortable even with lower air temperatures. Valor fireplaces distribute heat directly into your living space, much like the sun itself! Radiant heat keeps you comfortable, using up to 25% less energy compared to hot air systems which just put air into rooms without heating objects. Valor warmth efficiently replaces the chill from cold windows and doors, providing steady, even heat to objects in the room.
Need another clear advantage of radiant heat? It provides cleaner air quality, perfect for homeowners with asthma, allergies or arthritis. Dust particles, fumes and pollutants are not blown around so fabrics and painted surfaces stay brighter and fresher.
