Solace Home Comfort - Valor HeatShift

Introducing Valor’s New HeatShift System™

Valor gas fireplaces has been warming homes since 1890 and we’re proud to say we carry their products right in our two showrooms in Burnaby and Port Coquitlam in British Columbia. Valor is a recognized leader in advanced heat management and they’re taken it to the next level once again with their Valor HeatShift System™.

Recognizing homeowner needs and expectations is what separates Valor from the competition. Taking the concept of No Power, No Problem to the next level, Valor introduces a heat management system that redirects fireplace warmth to a higher elevation in the room.

Designed to reduce surface temperatures, the Valor HeatShift System™ is recommended, especially when adding a wall mounted TV or heat sensitive material directly above the fireplace. In essence, raising the heat outlet improves conventional airflow – reducing wall temperatures and improving overall performance. Excess warm air is then circulated back into the room at a higher elevation.

Traditionally, Valor fireplaces convect warmth through the fire box and back into the room. An impressive method to harness convective warmth, up to 60% of fireplace heat rises and flows through the Valor HeatShift System™ and back into the room. Compared to competitor alternatives that require electricity and a noisy fan for operation, heat is elevated naturally using gravity and Valor product ingenuity.

With heat transferred above, it is now possible to run non-combustible finishing materials right up to the fireplace surround. We have also incorporated a sleek heat outlet or hidden wall valance, which provides a clean surface for heat distribution back into the living space.

For more information on the HeatShift System™, please view their product brochure.

    • All fireplaces sold in Canada have an EnerGuide™ label (for example, Valor, Enviro and Pacific Energy Fireplaces) that tells you how energy efficient it is. There is no ENERGY STAR® rating for fireplaces, so in British Columbia, manufacturers developed the EnerChoice designation to identify the most efficient models.
  • To qualify for EnerChoice status hearths must have minimum efficiency ratings of:
    • 62.4% or higher for fireplaces
    • 61% or higher for inserts
