    No, but they look similar to the kick space units that you might find under kitchen cabinets. Fan assisted hot water coil. I have had good success with Beacon Morris products. I believe you will be pleased with the product if that is the best choice for the space that needs to be heated.

    I have used line voltage thermostats to operate the fan to keep room from overheating. I have also tied them in to branch circuits where old cast iron radiators were removed. Not as effective because the reduced GPM. Most of the time I use a dedicated circulator for the individual loop with as many as 3 units on the loop. As long as you don't have more than 15,000 BTUs on a 1/2" zone or 40,000 BTUs on a 3/4" zone.

    Every case is different

    The Vector will accumulate a lot more dirt!

    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?

    I am considering using them to replace an oversized furnace which has a poorly designed duct system. I want to use an in- floor solution.
