Description for Beacon Morris K120

Kickspace heaters are the space-saving alternative to hot water baseboard. Designed to fit inconspicuously under a cabinet, in the floor, on or in the wall, kickspace heaters are ideal for hard to heat areas such as foyers, kitchens, and bathrooms.

Hot water from the home's boiler is circulated through the kickspace unit and the fan gently blows heated air into the room. The homeowner simply selects the fan speed, then the unit turns on and off automatically according to heating demand.

Twin-Flo III + kickspace heaters are your ideal solution wherever space is limited:

  • Under Cabinets
  • In Kitchens, Baths, and Foyers
  • Under Stair Risers and Windows

        We live in N. MN. and have about a 1,200 SQ. FT. sized house with 3 levels. Based on the 43 BTU's per sq. ft. of space the Kitchen/dining/living room area (which is open for two floors) was GROSSLY under heated with about 30 ft. of thin-fin. I bought and installed the K-120 and it works GREAT! My office is directly under the heater and I can barely hear it running upstairs above me on low. We will run it on the low fan setting most of the time and only use High when we want a quick heat up, like in the morning after turning down the heat overnight.
        I didn not look, but IF the Installation manual is here to view (or maybe Beacon's OEM site?) I would suggest you read it before purchasing. I needed the Directional Tee I mentioned in Accessories and finding one locally was very challenging AND expensive! I should have ordered it with my original order. I know every installation is different so it's hard to draw parallels, but the other suggestion I would make would is to hook this heater up with Shark-bite style connectors, especially if you are working is a tight area. The time I wasted pulling the directional Tee out and re-soldering because I didn't get it clean enough the first time around cost me HOURS in draining the system and fooling around due to one little leak(in the hardest place to get to in the installation process!). I ultimately cut the Tee out, pulled out the offending connection pieces and re-soldered in my shop. Then I installed the Tee between two Shark-Bites and it all slipped together easily.
        Research and plan your connection strategy carefully if you are DIY-ing this. I plumbed in shut offs on both pex connection lines so I could isolate the heater later if need be. Pex shut-off are less than ball valves and connectors. AND don't forget the inline Air-bleeder!

        I use two K120's to heat about 1800 square feet from a water jacket I made on my wood stove. I added the low-temp aquastats as well. When run on high the blowers are loud, but I installed the heaters away from where we spend most of our time- if I were to have this in my kitchen I would have removed it. Since they are on a loop from my wood stove they seldom turn off (a few hours at most when it's cold), so I figured that the life of the blower motor wasn't going to be great. I had to replace my first blower assembly today after the motor let the smoke out- it made it two heating seasons. Pexsupply has super fast shipping and has the great prices, but the blower assembly is pricey relative to the overall cost of a new unit. Hindsight in mind- I wouldn't have gone with these heaters for my application.

        My previously installed Beacon Morris kickspace heater has worked flawlessly for 32 years and I expect this one to do the same.

        Comments about K120 Kick Space Heater:

        Did not have much room for a baseboard installation. Went with this in a sun room and it is perfectly tucked under a 42" cabinet.

        Pass on the flexible hose kit as it is way too expensive for its contents.

                          Simple install and works really well. Connected to a boiler and heats real quick. Fan comes on a 120 degrees and continues to run until temperature drops to 105 degrees. Really quiet on low fan speed.

                                I had a tuff time getting enough wall space for base board heaters in a room and my furnace was running all the time trying to keep a room warm. Now that I added the kick space heater with the wall cabinet the room warms up very quick and this unit was less than 1 hour to install on my system.---- I am very happy with this unit!

                                      Simple install with wall mount kit. Literally 3 wires and 2 copper connections - if the services are there, it is a 20 minute job. Nearly silent on low, but noticeably louder on high.

                                      kicks poorly-average insulated porch that is mostly windows from 50 up to 65 in about 20 minutes in 30 degree weather.

                                                  We purchased this unit to replace a more expensive one that we could hear from the other side of the house, even on low fan. We were worried at first that somehow, because this unit was less money, it wouldn't perform as well. Wrong. And this has become our favored line: "Silent Power". We are very happy with all 3 of these units we have around the room plus it does away with those unsightly baseboard units.

                                                        I installed this unit in a wall vertically (as opposed to the usual horizontal) between two rooms in a basement studio. Works great. Unit was a replacement for a Myson Whispa II that had a very short life. Thanks Beacon Morris for a great product and PexSupply for great service.

                                                          Q:

                                                          Hey guys, I am thinking of purchasing one of these units for my kitchen and bathroom remodel jobs. ONE THING I want to know - I have this flooring (Resilient vinyl plank flooring, floating floor) http://www.homedepot.com/p/TrafficMASTER-Allure-Ultra-7-5-in-x-47-6-in-Vintage-Oak-Cinnamon-Resilient-Vinyl-Plank-Flooring-19-8-sq-ft-case-517115/202352552?N=5yc1vZbzjz

                                                          Since this heater is installed very close to the floor, will the heat generated from this heater warp or damage the vinyl flooring? Is the heat directed towards the ground or towards the air? Thanks!

                                                            A:

                                                            This might be nit-picky, but I want to make sure you understand what these units are. These heaters do not "generate" any heat. They are hydronic fan coils that use hot water pumped through them for heat. If you are thinking these are electric heaters, they are not.They have an electric fan, but the heating coil is hydronic (hot water). They will not produce any heat unless they are connected to a hot water source.
                                                             
                                                            If you already know this, then here's how to approach your question. The discharge air temperature from these units specifically depends on the temperature of the water you are using to heat it with. If you are using 140 F water, then the air temperature cannot be more than that. If you are using 190 F water, then the air will be hotter but still less than the water temperature. Use that information to determine whether the air temp will be too high. If you aren't sure whether the material will have an issue with it, take a test piece, a thermometer and a heat gun and blow air at or above the temperature in question onto the material to test it.
                                                             
                                                            Having said that, with many variations of using these, I've never had any problems with the air coming out too hot for a flooring material. One issue, if your water temperature is too low (less than 120 F at the unit), the snap disc sensor in the fan may not turn on. Here is the low temp. control that you can get.       http://www.supplyhouse.com/Beacon-Morris-BMKR02024-L02-Low-Temp-Aquastat-for-K120

                                                            The kick space heater shouldn't be connected to steam but you can connect it to the water tank on your steam boiler. You will need a circulating pump to pump the water from the boiler through the kick space heater and back to the boiler. Use a room air thermostat to turn the circulation pump on when the temperature is below the setpoint and turn the circulation pump off when the temperature is above the setpoint. The manual provides a piping diagram and some instructions.

                                                            No, these heaters are not designed for use with steam systems.
                                                             
                                                            However, some steam systems do have a steam condensate (hot water) circuit that would work if connected to one of these units and a pump. If your system has a hot water circuit as part of its system piping, that may be suitable for these units with the appropriate pump and connection piping.

                                                            A:

                                                            The manual says to cut the hole 23" wide and 4" tall.
                                                             
                                                            But depending on the details, you might have an "it depends" situation. Are you going to install the unit through the same hole? If yes, you'll need it to be a big enough to allow you to slide the entire unit plus pipe connections through it. If you are going to cut a hole into the cabinet bottom and make an access door, then the hole only needs to accommodate the air flow (front AND side return air) and front switch. The hole size is not critical for operation, as long as the entire coil front is open and you have sufficient return air , it's usually an aesthetics issue.
                                                             
                                                            For installations I have done, I have normally sized the hole by lining the cover grill up with the installation location and adjusting the hole to be as big as you can make it but still allow the grill and trim to cover it acceptably. You need to watch out for the cabinet carcass and how it is constructed, you don't want to cut out an important cross-piece.
                                                             
                                                            I recommend an access opening in the cabinet bottom if at all possible. It will make the installation a lot easier and allows access for cleaning and servicing. If you can do that, then the recommended hole size works fine.
                                                             
                                                             Good luck!

                                                            The grid at the front of the photo is the grille. There are also two end pieces that screw into the toe kick surround to hold it in place. The grille is positioned such that the fan speed switch on the front of the unit is aligned with the corresponding hole in the grill. When you've got it in front of you, it should be pretty self-explanatory.
                                                            One thing to watch and account for is the clearance needed for the piping on the front of the coil, it can be pretty tight if the cabinet casing is made of thick material. If that is the case, you may need to "carve" out some clearance space to allow the front of the heater to be flush with the toe kick molding.
                                                            Good luck!

                                                          I am planing heat for a remodel of my combo dinning room / kitchen. I Need ~1300 btu. I can put one of these in a pensula roughly in the center of the room.

                                                          Will this provide enough heat or should i install 2 smaller units one toward the center and one on the outside wall. It will be installed on an individual pex run from a zone with a pump that also services 3 radiators.

                                                            One can configure several different options for controlling the fan in a
                                                            kick space heater. Although it won't come "out of the box" set to be
                                                            constantly on, whoever does the installation can easily make this happen.
                                                            Keep in mind that heat comes out of the kick space heater when the fan is
                                                            on AND when hot water is passing through the coils. You did not describe
                                                            the configuration of your hot water heating system, but if we assume that
                                                            you have a thermostat in your room that controls the zone on to which the
                                                            kick space heater would be added, letting the fan run constantly should not
                                                            cause your room to overheat.
                                                            If I were you I would consider wiring a timer switch in parallel with a
                                                            thermostatically controlled switch. During the time period you designate
                                                            on the timer (your sleep time) the fan can run constantly. During the rest
                                                            of the day the themostatically controlled switch will turn the fan on only
                                                            when hot water is present in the heating coils.

                                                            between a fan speed of "off", "low", or "high".

                                                          Q:

                                                          Hi There,
                                                          I need to replace a 5ft baseboard heater panel with a kickspace heater as I want to put a cabinet in that place. Which model would be suitable (in terms of BTUs) for the replacement? (K42, K84, or K120)?
                                                          secondly, Do I need a monoflo for the pipe installation?
                                                          Thirdly, does it matter if the supply & return get reversed accidentally?
                                                          Thanks in advance.

                                                            The k42 is bigger the 5 ft of base board. Don't buy a unit bigger than your cabinet! Mono flow is not needed and directing in and out of the unit don't really matter.

                                                            Your 5 ft of baseboard, assuming a typical
                                                            Installation, might deliver about 5*600 = 3,000
                                                            Btu/ hr. The k42 is rated at 1480-5240 Btu/hr.
                                                            As the k42 is cheapest and will meet your need
                                                            I'd use it.
                                                            Whether you need monoflo depends on your
                                                            installation. If the baseboard that you are replacing
                                                            is fed by a monoflo then you will still need
                                                            monoflo. If the baseboard you are replacing is
                                                            part of a bigger, 3/4 inch loop then you would
                                                            want to consider that the k42 is only 1/2 in. And
                                                            will restrict water flow too much in the rest of
                                                            the loop if plumbed in series like the old baseboard.
                                                            I would either plumb it in parallel using monoflo
                                                            Tee with a 3/4" diameter pipe. Or use normal Tee
                                                            and in the 3/4" parallel piece with a valve which you
                                                            can restrict the flow if K42 heat output seems
                                                            too low. If your baseboard is only 1/2" just
                                                            plumb k42 directly into the loop with out
                                                            the parallel bypass pipe.
                                                            It does not matter if supply and return are swapped
                                                            for the k42. If your question was in regard
                                                            to the monoflo T, direction does matter. But if
                                                            I'd installed one wrong I'd try it before ripping
                                                            it apart. Depending on the error it may not be
                                                            significant.

                                                            A K42 would have the closest output to five feet of baseboard. You should use a monoflo tee if you are installing the unit off an existing hydronic heating loop.

                                                          I noticed the flow rate is 1-3 GPM, I'm using a condensing combi heater with a flow rate of at least 4.2 GPM.

                                                          Will that differential damage this kickspace heater? Do I need to step down the flow rate with a tank or some other device?
