Qmark RCC Series 240 Volt Cove Heaters
Type RCC Series Cove Heaters can fulfill the requirements of virtually any type residential or commercial heating situation. Individual room control, ease of installation and out of the way mounting make it equally desirable for total or supplemental comfort heating. Typical uses are day care centers, apartments, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and foyers.
Height 4" x Width 2 7/8" x Length (varies by Catalog # from 34" to 132")
Heaters are an off-white color to complement any interior wall design. Dove Grey DG and Desert Tan DT are optional colors. The optional colors are available at no extra charge.
Dual Function Heating:
In addition to radiant heat, the RCC Series uses part of its energy to heat air passing behind and over the heater by convection flow, thus helping to "mix" the air in the room and achieving balanced heating throughout.
Comfort At Lower Temperatures:
In non-radiant types of heating systems, it is necessary to warm and circulate air in order to keep the temperature in a room at a comfortable level. The warmer air warms the furniture and people in the room. With radiant heating, furniture and people are heated directly. The surrounding air eventually becomes warm, but the comfort level is not dependent upon the air temperature. Room temperature can be lowered 3 to 5 degrees while still maintaining the same comfort level. Furniture, walls, floors, etc., absorb some of the energy and act as a heat bank, releasing some of the warmth into the room during the "off" period of the normal "on-off" cycle of the cove heaters
New Extrusion Design:
The extruded aluminum front panel is coated with high temperature textured paint radiating a majority of its heat energy from the front surface. The remaining energy is "wiped off" by a convection flow behind and over the top of the heater which circulates warm air into the room.
This cove heater mounts on any wall surface, near the ceiling where its dual function heating can be fully utilized. Radiant heat energy is directed downward, warming people and objects near the floor.
Infrared Type Heat:
Radiant heat provides heating comfort in much the same manner as the sun. Heat energy, in a form similar to light rays, travels in a straight line from the heater to the nearest object, where the energy is absorbed and the object becomes warm. Some rays are reflected and strike other objects, warming them also. As objects become warm, the surrounding air picks up heat by conduction and the entire room becomes warm, much like the sun warms the earth.
Individual Room Control:
The finite control available with electric heat permits individual room or zone control for greater economy; why heat the entire house when you are using only one or two rooms? This applies equally well for whole house heating or supplemental heating.
High Efficiency Radiating Surface:
The extruded aluminum front panel is coated with a lifetime vitreous enamel which has one of the highest levels for radiating heat energy of any known substance, radiating a majority of its heat energy from the front surface. The remaining energy is "wiped off" the element and back frame by a convection flow behind and over the top of the heater which circulates warm air into the room, under furniture, etc.
