If you need radiant heat, you've come to the right place.

Radiant heat travels in a straight line, unlike hot air, it is unaffected by wind or cold ambient air. Heat penetrates evenly just like heat from the sunlight. Since infrared heat can penetrate the object, the targeted surface and object are warmed and/or dried in a uniquely different way from any conventional heater which utilizes heated air.

These heaters are great for use in wash bays, warehouses, outdoor events and sidelines, for curing concrete, heating at a construction site, warming sewers for work crews or even heating animal pens.


VAL6 Space Heaters

Hotsy Carlson also offers VAL6 space heaters. Portable, durable and providing the most efficient and dependable radiant heat available, VAL6 heaters offer high efficiency and low fuel consumption in a portable heater design.

Because VAL6 heaters use radiant heating technology, they are more efficient at providing heat where you need it. With targeted heat delivery, you can warm up the room or workspace you need without wasting energy by heating unused areas.

RADIANT HEAT – Heat penetrates evenly like heat from sunlight.

OUTDOOR USE – VAL6 is not affected by wind, unlike forced air heaters that suffer from heat loss in the ambient air.

HEAT TRANSFER – VAL6 generates infrared heat directly to the object without any air movement creating a dust-free comfortable environment.

ODORLESS – A clean combustion system produces no odor or smoke while running.

ENERGY SAVINGS – VAL6’s state of the art combustion chamber enables virtually 100% fuel to energy conversion.

EPX is the Val6 Series’ most powerful, yet efficient model ever. With the enlarged combustion chamber, 20% larger radiation disk and improved atomization, the coexistence of power and economy is now possible.

EPX features a state of the art High/Low output control that enables its user to choose between a high or low output setting, thus making it very economical. EPX also boasts an Advanced Monitoring System that includes automatic shutdown. In the event that the main body reaches above normal temperatures or the system detects over voltage conditions, the heater will automatically shutdown to prevent malfunction of main components.


VAL6 Daystar

With its advanced technology, the Daystar brings you both “infrared heat” and “forced air heat” by adopting a dual heating system. The Daystar with its well-honed technology is perfect for spot space heating in a large open area.

Weighing only 40 pounds, the Daystar is ultra portable and can be used virtually anywhere you need to stay warm, indoors and out.


VAL6 KBE5L 2-Step

The newly upgraded KBE5L 2-Step is now equipped with a High and Low output control making it very economical. Also included is a Fuel preheater to keep fuel moving smoothly as temperature decreases.

KBE5L’s state of the art combustion chamber enables virtually 100% fuel to energy conversion. This translates to clean, odorless, smokeless operation and, more importantly, fuel savings.Impervious to nature’s elements (wind, rain, and snow), the KBE5S is able to transfer infrared heat directly to the object without any loss of heat or air movement.


VAL6 GN5 / GP5

The GN5/GP5 (natural gas/propane) is the newest model produced for the Val6 series.  It incorporates a gas burner into our infrared heater technology as it utilizes a premixed combustion burner that creates a blue flame due to premixing the fuel gas and air in advance.  This means virtually silent operation and clean combustion.


VAL6 FIR 1300

FIR1300 is the Val6 Series' Far-Infrared heater. With safer and deeper heat penetration with less intensity, Val6 can be used in a wider range of environments than ever before.

By tuning the frequency of infrared-radiation specifically to our bodies and surroundings, FIR1300 is the most efficient, "people friendly" Val6 ever.

FIR1300 features a closed-flame design that makes the heater suitable for indoor environments, Supplemented with a clean exhaust and low noise design that allows for quiet operation in any environment. A built-in thermostat keeps the space at the perfect comfortable temperature all the time.


VAL6 Hotgun 125NA

The “Ultimate Forced Air Heater”, the “Hotgun” is a spot space heater that heats the air with its high efficiency combustion system. It has a near perfect conversion rate from fuel to energy.

Unlike other space heaters, the Hotgun’s remarkable technology achieves quiet combustion of 69dB, high efficiency and a long running-time of over 15 hours.

Operating on either diesel or kerosene, the Hotgun is extremely versatile and easy to use almost anywhere you desire.
