Electric heat is safe, consistent and friendly to the environment because it heats without combustion or emissions, and it eliminates a source of fuel spills. Electric heat offers 100% energy efficiency because all of the energy is used to heat, when compared to the inefficient burning of fossil fuels. In addition, the efficiency will always be 100%, even after many years of operation, without costly maintenance.

Electric heat also eliminates stacks that must be monitored for emissions, along with eliminating air quality and boiler permits that must be pursued and maintained. Unitized Heaters can be interfaced and coordinated with other plant electrical equipment so that the load of the heaters can be reduced to base rates, thus preventing increased demand charges or peak-use rates and lowering consumption cost.
