How It Works
ETS Heating Systems
Steffes Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) systems are the alternative to high electricity bills and inefficient home heating. No matter how big your home or building or how cold the temperature outside, Steffes has the ideal ETS heating solution for your needs.
While you are sound asleep, your Steffes Heating System is working away – converting low cost, off-peak electricity to heat and storing it in its ceramic bricks. Unlike old-fashioned systems that don’t have a heat storage feature, Steffes Off-Peak Heating Systems save you money because the heat being stored is purchased at a lower cost for release as needed throughout the day. It is these reduced rates that allow ETS to provide considerable savings to consumers on their energy bills as compared to alternative heating options.
A room thermostat monitors room air temperature and regulates heat delivery as needed, providing comfort 24 hours a day. When the room thermostat calls for heat, the stored heat in the bricks is discharged into the area to satisfy the heating requirements. The amount of heat stored in the brick core of the heater is regulated in relation to weather conditions.

Bottom Line-You Save Money
Check with your local power company to find out if off-peak, time-of-day (or time-of-use), demand based, smart metering, or other preferential rates are available to you.
More than just lowering your bills
Get Started with An ETS Solution
Determining the model(s) or size(s) of ETS equipment needed for your application is just slightly different from sizing up conventional heating units.
It is important to accurately determine the size (and quantity) of units needed to satisfy your heating needs. Improper sizing (over or under) may have an adverse effect on system and installation cost as well as efficiency and comfort.
