Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) Heater

ETS heaters are 100% efficient units designed to provide low cost heat, 24 hours a day. By using electricity during ETS Advantage hours (those times during the day and night when usage is lower and electricity is cheaper), ETS units provide heat at costs lower than most other energy sources.

Heating costs for 2000 sq. ft home (2013)

During off-peak hours, the ETS unit’s heating elements convert electricity to heat which is stored in high density ceramic bricks. The bricks are surrounded by high efficiency insulation which allows them to hold great amounts of heat for long periods of time. A fan evenly and quietly distributes the heat to your home during higher cost, on-peak hours. Built-in thermostats allow you to easily maintain a desired temperature.

LPEA's Energy Efficiency Credits program makes ETS heat even more economical by offering you credits based on the number and size of ETS heaters you purchase.

LPEA offers heaters manufactured in the U.S.A. by the Steffes Corporation
