How You Save Money
Cost Savings of Electric Thermal Storage Units
Wouldn't it be great if you could save 40 to 70 percent on heating bills without forfeiting the comfort that comes with a well-heated building? With an ETS system from Steffes, these significant savings are possible.
The secret to the cost effectiveness of ETS systems is the ability to harness heat during off-peak billing hours for use during higher-priced peak billing hours. Thanks to the high-density ceramic bricks used in an ETS system, even during peak billing hours you will actually be paying non-peak billing prices for all your heating needs because the energy was stored during low-cost off-peak times. With ETS heating, you have the ability to satisfy all your heating requirements 24 hours a day using only off-peak electricity which results in considerable savings in your energy bills as compared to alternative heating options.
When interfacing an ETS furnace to a heat pump system, you can experience even greater savings and efficiencies. Using an ETS furnace as the supplemental and back-up heat to a heat pump, the heat pump is able to take advantage of the off-peak rate as well. In addition, with a Steffes furnace, a heat pump can be operated to very low temperatures capturing more of its efficiencies while still providing complete comfort. An ETS furnace and heat pump combination system is one of the most economical heating and cooling options available today.
Additional Benefits of ETS Systems
Beyond improved efficiency and operating cost savings, Steffes heating systems save owners money by reducing servicing and maintenance costs.
Steffes integrates only the highest quality components into every ETS system we produce. The result is an incredibly reliable product that requires no routine maintenance, annual cleanings, recertifications or servicing. Over the life of the unit (20+ years), this limited need for maintenance not only saves you money, but also unnecessary headaches and discomfort.
