Description for Beacon Morris K42

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

        I replaced six feet of copper fin tubing with one of these k42 units when I decided to add some cabinets in the laundry room. It works well on low putting out what I think is the equivalent amount of heat from the old copper tubes. I don't use the high fan setting because it's too loud for my taste, though it does throw out a lot of heat (I may use this for really cold days). The low setting is virtually silent.

        My only wish is that the manufacturer would have a rheostat control for the fan so that the homeowner could dial in the amount of heat and fan noise they are comfortable with.

        Not too bad- could be quieter

        I've only used it for ~1/2 a heating season so far, and it appears to provide the heating I expected. It is just a bit louder than I expected.

        Haven't got to use it yet.

        Comments about K42 Kick Space Heater:

        I purchased this heater to replace an existing one that got destroyed when a customer drove her car into her kitchen. The unit was exactly the same as the one broken so it should be ok. We were not able to run the heater with the boiler on because it is about 90* (to hot to fire it up) but fan worked as it should. Comes with a thermostat so it only runs when the boiler is running.

                          Mounted units under floor using the Beacon Morris floor kit. Simple installation if your familiar with soldering and using Pex. Follow the instructions, use a moniflow type T connection, and properly bleed the air from the system.

                                Under the cabinet boiler radiator heater. Fan provides good air flow. The only glitch was in the shipping. I paid for three day shipping and had I not gone and picked it up on the fourth day it would have taken five days on UPS.

                                            The K42 heater I purchased was installed in a bathroom under the sink cabinet. Installation was simple since the hot water supply is adjacent to the cabinet.
                                            Two sweated copper fittings and a needle bleeder valve were all the was requited. Start to finish, the job took a little over an hour. Removing the old heater (not a Beacon Morris)was the worst part of the job.
                                            The two speed fan is a very nice feature.

                                                  + A good small heater for the corner that does not get heat from the coils. I found it to b well constructed even at the bottom of the price range.
                                                  - Hmmm make sure if you have it on the end of the run get the low temp swx.
                                                  Pex Supply is the best resource for hydronic in the USA.
                                                  I did online research and ordered my entire system from them. Even with shipping it was less than when bought in CA.

Is there a drop in the BTU rating when it is installed in this manner? This is really the only installation option for this part of the kitchen given our design.

So if "outside corner "means a long distance from the heater hence lower temperature water then BTU output would be directionally lower.

The K42 will deliver about 4300 BTU with the fan on high, 3600 with the fan on low (no rating info given for case with fan off, but probably pretty minimal). (180 degree water temperature). Depending on your system design this may or may not be a problem; if the occupant is okay with turning the blower on/off then it should be fine. Alternatively a line voltage t-stat can be installed to control the blower. Note that head loss will be higher which may impact circulator performance.

The fluid flowing through the heater will rejoin the main 3/4 line after the heater through another tee. You should read more about venturi tees and their function with a web search.

My kickspace heater fan comes on when the heating water temperature exceeds 140F. I let it run wild (no tempering valves). However, my system is on an outdoor air temperature reset which reduces circulating water temp as outside air gets warmer. In our mild climate, I usually circulate warm (80 -120F) water.

You need the monoflow T(s) to correctly divert some flow to the kickspace heater but not all flow. A standard T will not work as well because more flow will go to the path of least resistance which is likely not the kickspace heater. If you place the unit directly in the 3/4" loop series (without a T) it is highly likely your series flow will be too reduced potentially causing issues throughout the heating loop.

The unit is hard wired and has a bi-metal switch that turns the fan on to blow warm air out from under the counter when it detects a temperature rise from hot water flowing through it due to the furnace coming on when the thermostat tells the furnace to come on. Once the furnace shuts down and the water flowing through the unit cools down, the bi-metal switch opens and the fan stops.
                                                                  In other words, the unit sits under the counter and does nothing until the furnace comes on. Once the furnace comes on and sends hot water though the baseboard heating system to heat the house, the hot water flowing through the unit trips the fan switch turning the fan on to blow warm air out to heat the room (kitchen) without baseboard heaters due to cabinets taking up wall space. I suppose one could bypass the bi-metal switch and wire the unit to be run manually from a switch located somewhere in the room, but I'm not sure why one would do that unless one wanted air circulation for the room while the furnace is off.
                                                                  It sits there out of sight and out of mind until it stops working and the room never warms up.
                                                                  I hope this helps.

I found the thermoswitch set way to high (93 degrees) for use with a modern high efficiency modulating boiler that often do not heat the water up much beyond 90 degrees in milder temparateures. The thermo switch should be set at 70 or even lower for this unit to be optimally effective in my application.
