Warming homes since 1890, Valor gas fireplaces are recognized as leaders in advanced heat management.
Recognizing homeowner needs and expectations is what separates Valor from the competition. Taking the concept of No Power, No Problem to the next level, Valor introduces 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 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 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.
