The ThermElect central forced-air furnace is an electric thermal storage (ETS) unit for commercial and industrial applications. The ETS converts electricity into heat and stores it in a specially designed high-density ceramic brick core. The core is capable of storing heat up to 1,650 degrees F. According to the manufacturer, the unit has enough storage capacity to provide heating comfort 24 hours a day, while allowing the user to utilize low-cost off-peak electric rates. The ThermElect has a programmable, microprocessor-based control system with flexible, customized control of heat settings, and self-diagnostics. Each unit has built-in sensing devices and a receiver for wireless communication of information, such as utility peak control signals, outdoor temperature, room temperature setbacks, and automatic brick core charge control.
