Radiant heating technology is widely regarded as the most comfortable, healthiest, natural form of heating available. It is based in principle on the most primary source of heat we know - the sun. Like the sun's rays, radiant heat moves in straight lines warming all objects in its path which, in turn, act as small heat convectors multiplying warmth. Valor gas fireplaces radiate heat directly from the flame and fuel bed, through the glass, distributing steady, even warmth. Absorbed by people and objects within the room, rather than just warming air space, radiant heat is effective and efficient for 'zone heating'.
