Factories come in all different shapes and sizes, all with their own individual requirements when considering a new factory heating solution.
There are many good reasons to invest in new factory heating equipment, and not just the fact that the winter will soon be here. It could be that your old equipment may be costing you more money on fuel bills, or perhaps your requirements have changed?
Whatever the reason it is important to know all the facts about which type of heater would suit you best. As warm air heaters are a very popular choice, you should know what is available to you and how it can benefit your business.
Things You Should Know About Factory Heating
Humidity can be a big problem in a factory environment as you may have your products in your work area that can be affected or even damaged by humidity in the air. Warm air heaters also provide a dry heat that helps to remove moisture from the air, that could reduce the risk of product damage caused by the damp air.
Another reason as to why warm air heaters are popular in factories is that there is a variety of models to suit many types of building.
Suspended warm air heaters are popular when floor space is scarce with high ceiling shelf of wall installations, allowing you to utilise your space more efficiently. Suspended unit heaters are also available in standard and compact designs, to suit the requirements of the business.
Electric heaters can also be quite expensive to run with average costs of electric being 13.52 pence/kWh, . Average gas prices are 4.21 pence/kWh and LPG averaging 8.9 pence/kilowatt. As suspended heaters normally utilise gas or LPG that could potentially reduce your heating bills.
If floor space is not a problem and your requirement is to heat one large space then you may well benefit from free-standing warm air heating equipment. These are popular because they are easy to install and maintain, due to floor installation, reducing the need for access equipment. They are also very versatile and are available in a large range of outputs and burner options. Although this form of heating is known as floor standing it may be that you require it to be wall mounted horizontally.
There is no need to worry if your business does not have a gas supply, cabinet warm air heaters are also available in oil as well as gas and LPG and some even with the option in the use of biofuels.
With all of these options available it can be difficult to decide whether or not warm air is the solution for your factory heating installation. A site survey can determine whether you could benefit from these industrial heaters, or whether radiant heating may be more suitable.
