factory heating installationThe UK has just endured one of the coldest winters in recent years and every heating system throughout the country has been severely tested to the limits.

Some will have come through the challenge with ease but some may have fallen by the wayside.

However, there will also be those that have just about made it through to spring but the chances of seeing it through another winter are slim.

If your heating system is on its last legs, or you would just like to have something more reliable and efficient, then we have produced a short guide for buyers to consider when looking for a new industrial heating system.


Making sure that your equipment is efficient as possible is hugely important, especially given the rise in energy bills over the past decade. Although a new heating system may cost you a few thousand, the long term benefits will be far more cost effective.


Does your property have adequate insulation? If not you could be losing heat and money. For example, if you opted for a condensing heater but your insulation was insufficient, your purchase will become pointless. For an efficient heating system to work properly you must ensure that your insulation is up to scratch as heat will always try and find a way to escape.


When looking for a new heating system you must consider your building type. If your factory contains chemicals that need to be kept at a certain temperature then radiant heating is your best option. Radiant heating can ensure that certain areas retain the heat but have a different temperature somewhere else. You must also think about your main exit points. For example, if you run a garage and your doors are always open the energy from a warm air heater will leave the building straight away.

Fix or replace

If the thought of replacing your heating system fills you with dread the other option is to get it repaired. If it’s a relatively new system a repair should fix the problem. However, if it’s getting on in years you must weigh up a number of factors. How much will it cost to repair? How confident are you that your system will survive? Will you actually be losing cash by continuing to use an inefficient product? At Heaters Wholesale we can carry out repairs and customers who have their annual service with us will receive a priority service.
