Heat Transfer Systems

Heat transfer: better comfort and efficiency.
Heating sources that don't have a thermostat, such as woodburners, can result in excess heat in one room while the rest of the house remains cold.
A heat transfer unit can improve the comfort level of your home by efficiently transferring excess heat from one room to others. In some cases this may eliminate the need for extra heating in those other rooms and it increases the comfort of both.
Types of heat transfer systems.
We have three main types of heat transfer systems:
- Through-wall heat transfer kit - This simple system transfers heat through the wall to an adjacent room.
- Ducted stand-alone heat transfer system - Transfers excess heat from one room to other adjacent or non-adjacent rooms via a system of ducts.
- Ventilation system upgrade - Existing ventilation systems, that use filtered air from the ceiling or outside to address damp and condensation, can also be upgraded to act as a heat transfer system.
SmartVent heat transfer upgrades.
Heat transfer is an added function to a SmartVent digital system meaning when it's not winter you still have a useful ventilation system available. The system has advanced controls with a choice of three different functions:
- Normal - Activates the heat transfer operation when the heated room exceeds a temperature that you specify.
- Override - Activates irrespective of the heated rooms temperature.
- Timer - Activates for a four hour period.
NOTE: Installed pricing offer of $510 is for the Thru Wall Fan Kit for heat transfer to an adjacent room.

3 questions & answers about this product
Will a Heat Transfer System heat my whole house?
Perhaps, but probably not. It all depends how much excess heat there is in the room with the heat source.
The more likely outcome is that the temperature in the other rooms will be raised a few degrees to take the chill off them while you don't overheat the original room. Both rooms end up more comfortable.
Can I use a Heat Transfer System with my heat pump?
No. Heat Transfer Systems are designed to remove excess heat from a room with a non-thermostat heat source like open fires and log burners. Heat pumps are thermostatically controlled and so won't create excess heat without making the primary room uncomfortably and wastefully hot.
Opening the door to a small adjacent room is possible if the heat pump is correctly sized.
