When selecting strip heaters for either, two important factors must be considered: The proper sheath material for resisting any rusting and oxidizing inherent in the process or environment and for withstanding the sheath temperature required. Standard sheath materials are rust resisting iron, chrome steel and Incoloy NS Series only. Stainless steel and Monel sheaths are available at an additional charge.
A thermostat can be attached to the heater or mounted separately. Pictured are enclosure heater units with thermostat on heater in foreground and heater Watlow's finned strip heaters are constructed of highly-compacted MgO-based insulation, which conducts heat efficiently from the nickel chromium element wire to the sheath.

In residential applications, an air handler is usually used for forced air distribution of central air conditioning. The common air handler is a cabinet with a blower, controls, and houses the air conditioning evaporator coil. Electric heat strips, breakers, and heating controls can be added as an option to this standard air handler.
If you have a heat pump, you might be aware that you should avoid using the emergency heat setting on your thermostat. Simply put, heat pumps operate by harnessing warm air present in the air outside your home. As outside air is pulled in to your heat pump, liquid refrigerant draws the heat out of the air, converting it to hot vapor. That heat is then distributed throughout your home.
Steel strip heaters are an excellent industrial heating product and can be easily controlled by using a temperature controller such as a mechanical thermostat or a cost effective bimetal thermostats that can be installed on the surface you are heating. Mounting holes are useful to mount the process heaters securely on almost any surface with terminal extending from the sheath for easy electrical connections. Many users also request lead wires that extend from one end that make the installation more flexible as the temperature control panel is easily adaptable to this configuration.
