When there’s not enough wall space to install baseboard radiation, install The Kicker by Slant/Fin. The compact Kicker provides the heat output of up to 12 feet of baseboard, depending on the model you choose. Sized to fit under cabinets or between wall studs, The Kicker is simple to install and easy to operate. Set it and forget it.

How It Works

The Kicker is generally installed with baseboard or other radiators that make up a heating zone. An aquastat inside The Kicker activates The Kicker’s fan so that it automatically turns on and off, delivering a quiet flow of heat to the room whenever the water in the heating zone is hot. A convenient switch enables the user to set the fan speed at high, low or off. The Kicker may also be installed as a separate zone with its own room thermostat.

The supply water in each of the short loops off the manifold makes just a single pass through the heat exchanger. This provides higher supply water temperature to a greater percentage of the heat exchanger fins than a serpentine coil. Since this configuration helps minimize pressure drop, you can often install The Kicker in the same heating loop with baseboard without diverting tees. That reduces installation costs.
