Eskabe Direct-Vent Heaters
Heaters Come with a 1-Year Manufacturer Warranty (10 Years on Burner)
Vents Directly Through Outside Wall

Direct Vent Heaters

Eskabe Direct-Vent heaters vent through any outside wall (up to 10 inches thick). They use outside air for combustion and the burnt gases are vented outside. Burning efficiency is approximately 80%, so you get excellent value for your fuel dollar. Each heater INCLUDES the vent kit, so the only thing you need to do is cut a round hole through the wall (up to 10 inches thick), install the vent kit, and hook up a gas line. No special insulation or fire-proofing is required for the vent kit. It is a dual-wall pipe that exhausts the hot gases through the center pipe while bringing in cooler outside air through the outside pipe.

Optional injectors are available at no charge if you live at very high altitudes. Note that the injectors, when installed, will decrease the gas consumption and thus decrease the heat output, so you should generally purchase the next larger sized heater if you need to do an altitude adjustment.

Compare price, design and features with Empire and Rinnai. You'll see that Eskabe heaters are more stylish, and they cost less.

Heat Spreads through room via Convection

Heat Spreads via Convection

The design of Eskabe's heated air outlet causes the stream of heated air to circulate throughout the room to keep a uniform warm temperature, even in far away corners.
Safe for Your Baby

Safety for Your Family

Unlike many other heaters, Eskabe heaters do not have visible (and touchable) flames or glowing ceramic plaques that can cause serious burns if touched. Eskabe cabinets do get hot, but they are hundreds of degrees cooler than the flames and ceramic plaques in other heaters. Curious toddlers might be attracted to a flickering blue flame or bright orange ceramic plaque. Eskabe heaters hide the heat source, so toddlers are less likely to go near them.
Thermostat Operation Thermostat Control Outside Vent Plate and Cap

Controls, Thermostat and Venting

The controls are conveniently located on the top. Included is a push-button piezo igniter to light the pilot. On the 8k btu model, the control knob allows you to select Off, Low or High heat settings and the heater will stay in that mode until you change it. The 11k and 17k btu models both have modulating thermostats. With other brands of thermostat-controlled heaters, the thermostat will turn the unit on and off in order to maintain a fairly even room temperature. A modulating thermostat does more than that. Rather than just turning the heater on and off at it's maximum output, a modulating thermostat increases and decreases (modulates) the flame height inside the burner in an attempt to better match the room's heating requirements. As the room heats up and approaches the thermostat's set point, the heater will decrease the flame height to decrease fuel consumption and heat output. By doing this, Eskabe (11k and 17k btu units only) heaters can reduce fuel consumption and keep the room at a more even temperature, compared to other heaters that just have on/off thermostats.

The three sizes of heaters generally are capable of heating 200, 275 and 425 square feet respectively. Several factors will affect these numbers. If your ceiling height is over 8 feet, you'll need more btu's. If your wall and ceiling insulation is below average, you could require twice as big a heater for the same space. Altitude also affects all gas heaters. For every thousand feet above 2000 feet, the gas consumption and heat output decrease by about 4%. If you need help deciding the size heater for your space, just give me a call.
