What is Electric Thermal Storage?

Steffes Electric Thermal Storage systems gain efficiency by taking advantage of off-peak electricity, which is charged at a lower rate since it is consumed during times when demand on the electrical grid is low. Steffes ETS systems convert off-peak electricity to heat and store it in heating elements contained within high-density ceramic bricks.

With the Steffes ETS systems’ abilities to store vast amounts of heat for long periods of time, you can get on-peak performance for an off-peak price. These capabilities can save you upwards of 40 to 70 percent on heating bills without having to sacrifice the comfort and convenience of a traditional heating system. Our ETS systems don’t produce carbon monoxide, so they’re safe and require very minimal maintenance.

Who is this technology for?

Central heating with ETS is for customers wishing to replace their fuel burning central heating system with an electric one, as well as those who need to invest in a new system.

Steffes ETS and Nova Scotia Power's TOD Rates

Steffes Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) heaters store heat during off-peak hours when electricity costs are the lowest, then release the stored heat when it is needed throughout the day. ETS is a proven electric heating system that works with Nova Scotia Power’s Time-of-Day (TOD) rates. Steffes ETS heaters automatically deliver savings by storing heat at night, taking advantage of cheaper TOD power rates. Click here to view the Steffes + TOD rates brochure.
