Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) is the technology of converting off-peak electricity to heat and storing this low cost heat for use in satisfying comfort requirements of a home or business 24 hours a day.

An ETS system contains electric heating elements which lie within special, high-density ceramic bricks. These bricks are capable of storing vast amounts of heat for extended periods of time.Power is cheaper when demand is low.

Electricity is more expensive during certain times of the day when we use a lot of it due to operating dishwashers, washers and dryers, computers, blow dryers… it’s a long list. A power company may refer to the hours when the demand for electricity and associated costs are high as on-peak hours. In the commerical market  on-peak times may be when their electric consumption is at its peak.

Off-peak hours are the times of day or night when the power companies usually have excess energy supply due to low demand. In commercial and industrial applications, it is those hours when "demand free" power is available and generally when consumption within the facility is low. Some power companies offer reduced rates or substantial discounts on electricity consumed during off-peak times. These rates are called "off-peak rates."

During hours a power company deems as off-peak, the electric elements generate the heat that will be stored in the bricks of the ETS Heating Systems. This stored heat is used to satisfy immediate heating requirements and to provide total comfort during peak hours. Environmentally Friendly

We had Vis do all the plumbing and heating work for our home. Vis provided professional and quality workmanship that was outstanding. The warranty on their products and service was honored for three years following the initial installation. I would highly recommend Vis for any plumbing or heating job and would not hesitate to contract with them in the future.
