Floor level, ambient air is drawn from your room into the Summer Breeze zone heater through the washable filter. This lifetime filter prevents airborne impurities from entering the heating chamber.
Cool, filtered air enters the cross-flow fan chamber and is propelled upward into the heating chamber. The 22 bladed fan, spins at 1,800 revolutions per minute. The continuous-duty rated, self-lubricating fan requires no maintenance.
Air passes across the 172 stainless steel fins of the heating element where it is brought up to approximately 200 degrees fahrenheit. The exclusive mineral-filled tubular heating element is guaranteed for ten years, five to ten times longer than typical warranties of bulb heaters. The magnesium oxide inside the element tube pulls the heat energy from the filament wire to the stainless steel tube and fins, which act as an integrated heat exchanger with the air. The magnesium oxide in the tubular heating element not only works to protect the filament wire, but also significantly reduces the temperature of the filament wire when compared to that of quartz elements or bulbs. The efficient transfer of heat away from the filament wire prevents burnout and provides dramatically longer life of the heat source.
Warm air flows from the Summer Breeze zone heater into your room. The front louvered grill directs the warmth slightly downward as to take advantage of heat's natural tendency to rise, keeping you warm from your toes to your nose. Little fingers are protected thanks to our exclusive FeltTouch coating on the front grill.
