Earth Thermal Storage System Delivers Comfort and More!
Creating one of the most comfortable and economical heating systems available, SmartRooms Earth Thermal Storage System is a slab heating system installed in soil or sand under a concrete slab building foundation. The result is that the ground underneath becomes an efficient, large mass of stored thermal energy. It’s the same principle as the earth’s core.
The system is charged (energized) when less expensive off-peak electric rates are in effect. The stored energy is only released when the area above it becomes cool. Otherwise the radiant heat remains where it is so there is no wasted energy. The system is protected from mechanical harm, corrosive chemicals, and moisture. Even the most hazardous areas can be safely and economically heated.
Control for the SmartRooms Earth Thermal Storage System can range from a basic pre-wired system of contacts, control relays, and pilot lights, up to our SmartRooms Comfort Controller. The system can then be zone-controlled and automatically timed for use during low peak periods, when necessary, for even greater economy.
The combination of this technology and use of off-peak electrical rates results in tremendous operating savings.
Earth Thermal Storage Heating System is perfect for basements, slab-on-grade contruction, solariums/sun rooms, entrances, industrial buildings, aircraft maintenance hangars, malls and car and truck facilities.
As with all SmartRooms products, installation is fast and easy, and the Earth Thermal Storage System also provides gentle, low-temperature warmth with no hot spots or drafts. The system is clean, creating no smoke or soot. And it doesn’t take up valuable floor space.
Ray Stoodley, Lead Electrical Engineer for Bay Newplan Group Ltd., Newfoundland, Canada worked on Melville Hospital’s Earth Thermal Storage installation.
“SmartRooms Earth Thermal Storage System is easy to install and well-suited to maximum demand control. Operating the system is a simple matter of turning it on in off-peak times then using the energy you store during expensive periods. We’re talking days’ worth of storage so the money you save is enormous! There’s no equivalent to SmartRooms Earth Thermal Storage System. In fact, I’m very interested in learning more about the entire SmartRooms System.”
