The Reiker Room Conditioner is the only ceiling fan heater tested and verified by the United States Department of Energy.
After a year and a half of working with the U.S. Energy Department Building Technology Center, the Reiker Room Conditioner was born. Nicknamed, the ceiling fan for all seasons, it is the ideal zone heating device. Current heating systems fail to address the few basic tenets that impact their efficiency: Heat rises; duct systems are inefficient ways to transport heated energy; and window glass temperatures must be taken into account if you expect to efficiently heat a room.
The Reiker room Conditioner is a totally ductless system and is the first system to revolutionize zone heating. Because of its high levels of efficiency and resultant low cost of operation, no one with access to electricity should ever be cold again.
Clinical proof the Reiker ceiling fan space heater is highly energy efficient (saving you money) and a highly effective, comfortable room heater.
The Reiker ceiling fan space heater undergoes continuous, thorough testing to prove its efficiency and effectiveness.
This includes tests conducted under strict laboratory conditions in a variety of climatic conditions at the US Department of Energy.
These tests show, conclusively, that the Reiker Room Conditioner is a highly energy efficient, highly comfortable room heater.
The Reiker ceiling fan space heater is a highly effective and efficient room heater and zone-heating device. As a room heater or zone-heating device, the Reiker ceiling fan, when placed in each room, enables you to set each room to any desired temperature. Rooms can now be individually heated at lower temperatures when not in use. This means huge savings for homeowners, condo, mobile home and business owners.
This was the first test performed on the Initial Reiker Prototype. The test proved that the Reiker Room Conditioner provides even temperatures throughout a room, from the ceiling to the floor and keeps warm air from stagnating at the ceiling.
The 12-foot by 16-foot test room for the Reiker Room Conditioner Prototype consisted of concrete walls, a steel ceiling, tile floor, and two large non-insulated windows. During the test the outside temperature was a cold 26 degrees Fahrenheit, 6 degrees below freezing. Temperature gauges were placed throughout the room at the ceiling, mid room, and at floor level to gauge the temperature stratification during the test. The temperature rose from a cool and uncomfortable 60 degrees to a warm 75 degrees in just three hours and, as you can see from the graph the temperatures were virtually equal throughout the room. The scientists running this initial test were impressed with the ability of the Reiker Room Conditioner to break up stratification and maintain even temperatures. The Reiker room Conditioner has accomplished what conventional heating systems have fallen short of, it puts the heat where the people are rather than letting it rise to the ceiling and dissipate.
This test proves that the Reiker Room Conditioner effortlessly raises the temperature in a cold room then uses the minimum amount of energy required to maintain that temperature.
This test was performed in a Large Scale Climatic Controlled Chamber at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The outside temperature was maintained at a freezing 29 degrees Fahrenheit (blue line) and the room temperature was allowed to drop to a cold 50 degrees (red line). The Reiker Room Conditioner was activated (red line) and quickly warmed the room to 72.4 degrees using less energy (black line, 1480-1420 watts) then a hand held hairdryer. As the Reiker Room Conditioner moved into its maintenance mode you can see the reduction in power (black line) first to three heating elements (approximately 1100 watts) then to two heating elements (approximately 850 watts) then fluctuating between one (approximately 480 watts) and two elements (an average of 622 watts) to maintain 72.4 degrees F.
If you enjoy even temperatures throughout a room, then you will appreciate these test results.
This test was preformed in a Large Scale Climatic Controlled Chamber in a room made of Structurally Insulated Panels (SIP). The outside temperature was brought down to a bone chilling 0 degrees Fahrenheit or 32 degrees below freezing. This test was designed to compare the differences in constant room temperature achieved by the Reiker Room Conditioner when compared to a Conventional, Thermostatically Controlled Heating System. In an eight-hour test the Reiker Room Conditioner maintained even temperatures throughout the entire room as indicated by the green dots on the graph. The Conventional System, due to its antiquated thermostat that went from full power on to full power off was continuously chasing a moving target. The temperatures were all over the chart, constantly too hot or too cold, only passing through the desired temperature momentarily. The results of this test prove that the Reiker Room Conditioner out performs conventional systems when it comes to even heat and comfort.
This test proves that the Reiker Room Conditioner Heats up the interior surface of the window glass in a room. This is something conventional systems fail to account for.
The 12-foot by 16-foot test room for the Reiker Room Conditioner Prototype consisted of concrete walls, a steel ceiling, tile floor, and two large non-insulated windows. During the test the outside temperature was a cold 26 degrees Fahrenheit, 6 degrees below freezing and the interior of the window glass was an uncomfortably cool 48 degrees Fahrenheit at the beginning of the test. Temperature gauges were placed on the windows in order to see the rise in the surface temperature of the window glass. The Scientists conducting the test were surprised to see the interior surface temperature of the window glass rise to a comfortable 65 in only three hours of testing. Once again the Reiker Room Conditioner has accomplished what conventional systems have fallen short of, heating up the interior window glass in a home. This phenomenon is a major break through in heating technology. It eliminates the discomfort associated with sitting next to a cold drafty window.
This test proves that the Reiker Room Conditioner maintains the exact temperature from the floor to the ceiling while the Conventional Heating System routinely produces stratified layers that have huge variations in temperatures from the floor to the ceiling.
This test was performed in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Large Scale Climatic Controlled Chamber. During two eight-hour tests, one with a conventional heating system and another with the Reiker Room Conditioner, temperatures were measured at locations from 12 inches above the floor to 70 inches above the floor. The Conventional System (red line) was a victim of typical room heat stratification. The temperatures varied by as much as 10 degrees from floor to ceiling.
The Reiker Room Conditioner (blue line) is the first heating system designed to give you even heat from the floor to the ceiling. As you can see, the
