Introducing the Valor HeatShift System
May 24, 2016
Ever wonder how people safely hang a TV or expensive art above a heat producing fireplace? Careful planning and product choices, until now.
Recognizing homeowner needs and expectations Valor has introduced 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.
