Do your homework!
Some of our furniture items apply for an almost unconditional Lifetime Warranty. The items included in this policy are sofas, couches, love seats, upholstered chairs, ottomans, sectionals, and sleepers. As a retailer we warrant these components to you, the original retail purchaser, to be free from material manufacturing defects. The lifetime duration of the Warranty means the standardized usage cycle for a specific furniture item.
What kind of heat?Decide if you have a conductive heat issue or a radiant heat issue. And find the temperature of the heat source!
Measure those tempsGrab that thermotmeter and figure out how hot your heat is.
The Difference Between Conductive, Convection, and Radiant Heat.
Conductive heat transmits heat from one object to another by direct contact.
Convective heat occurs when heat is transferred between a solid and a moving fluid or gas is called convection.
Radiant heat is heat that radiates from a heat source to a component that is not in direct contact with the heat source; instead it sits at a distance.
What is the Best Way to Stop the Heat?
There are multiple ways to stop the heat. While there are a variety of insulation solutions they break down into tow categories, a heat shield barrier and an insulator.
InsulatorsInsulators are the most efficient way to stop heat. Containing the heat at the source, reduces the amount of work you need to do to manage heat.
Heat Shield BarriersThe second one is the examination of the item by our customer support agent, making sure the usage was regular.
Read the Small Print
Many re-boxers of exhaust wrap and other insulation materials like to mislead the consumer. They will advertise the intermittent temperature of a wrap instead of the continuous or service temperature. Intermittent temperatures are the exhaust wrap or other insulation temperature rating that it can take for 30 seconds or less. So once again, do your homework. Ask for the service temperature and intermittent temperature of a competitors product. Heatshield Products will show in big bold numbers our continuous operation temperature and the intermittent temperature.
