Steam and Hot Water Unit Heaters are comprised of a heating coil that is energized by either steam or hot water produced by a boiler or some type of central water heating device. Hung from the ceiling, a fan mounted behind the coil forces air through the hot coil thus drawing heat out of the coil and "throwing" it in to the area where heat is required. This product works on the same principle as your car's radiator. As your car engine runs and produces heat, coolant is pumped through the engine to a radiator coil in front of the engine. The fan under the hood blows air through the radiator coil drawing the heat out of the coolant, which helps to dissipate excessive heat from your engine.
Beyond commercial/industrial uses, Beacon/Morris has created Serpentine unit heaters that can be easily installed in your garage, basement, crawl space or work-shed. We refer to these as Serpentine units because copper tubing winds its way through the aluminum coil and efficiently draws heat from the hot water as it is pumped through it. As you can see by the accompanying photograph, our Serpentine unit heaters are tapped on the side which allows for easy installation close to the ceiling as well as making piping in to your existing forced hot water system easily done. We recommend putting the heater in an out of the way corner of your garage and our optional OSHA approved fan guard will ensure safety during operation.
Our Serpentine units come in four sizes with BTUh outputs as follows based on 200-degree water temperature:
- HB-108A - 8,030 BTUh
- HB-118A - 18,400 BTUh
- HB-125A - 24,800 BTUh
- HB-136A - 35,900 BTUh
In cold parts of the country, especially in Alaska, these powerful, compact unit heaters are considered a necessity to keep winter's grip out of the garage and to make for easy automobile start-ups on the coldest of mornings. Even if you don't live as far north as Alaska, Beacon/Morris Serpentine unit heaters are a great choice for your comfort as well as for adding value to your home.
Beacon-Morris steam/hot water unit heaters are ETL certified and verified.
