The Ouellet Electric Radiant Cove Heater is the perfect addition for many residential and light commercial installations. The ORC090 is a 71" radiant heater, offering 900 Watts of heat. This heater will give you 900 Watts regardless of the voltage you need. The ORC Cove heater is available in your choice of 120V, 208V, 240V, and 277V (commercial use only). The front of the heater is constructed of an aluminum extrusion to increase heating surface, while the back of the heater is 18-gauge steel. Each end of the heater includes a junction box, 4" ground wires and approved wireways that allow the interconnection of multiple heaters to give you wall-to-wall radiant heat. The stainless steel tubular heating element is inserted into a solid aluminum extrusion to prevent any thermal expansion.
Radiant heat is a great, safe option for heating many different rooms. Like the sun, radiant heaters warm people, objects and furniture not necessarily the air, making it a comfortable warmth. Because the Cove heater is installed up and out of the way, they are a great alternative to space heaters. They are not taking up wall or floor space, helping to avoid trip-and-fall accidents as well as burning. This is especially important in spaces where children may be playing on the floor. Unlike typical wall heaters, the Cove heaters can be installed above doorways or windows, in entrances and hallways, bathrooms and other small spaces, day care centers, children's rooms/nursery and even workshops. In today's world, a Cove heater is a great option for warming home offices - especially if you find your home office in a previously unheated space or where gas heat is not an option. At a minimum, the ORC Cove heater requires a 6 ft. clearance to the floor and 4.5" clearance from the ceiling. Additionally, it sits approximately 4.5" from the wall it is installed on. A radiant heater offers constant and evenly distributed heat.
Ouellet recommends using an electronic wall thermostat to control the ORC Cove heater. However, it does offer both single-pole and double-pole built-in thermostats. The TB6 is a single-pole thermostat and the TB26 is a double-pole thermostat with an "off" position. These thermostats can be ordered factory installed, at the time of purchase, or can be added at a later time and field installed. A thermostat is required to operate the ORC Radiant Cove Heaters.
The Ouellet ORC Radiant Cove Heaters are available in three (3) colors* - Silichem Off-White, Matte Black and Anodized Aluminum - as well as several sizes ranging from 34" - 113". Additionally, ORC Cove heaters are also available in various voltages - 120V, 208V, 240V and 277V depending on your electrical requirements. Each option is available with or without a factory-installed thermostat. Depending on your installation needs, the radiant cove heater can blend with any decor.
The ORC090 is 71" long.
*The 277V ORC cove heater is only available in Silichem Off-White. 277V is for commercial use only. These are Special Order and require additional lead time.
