3 Most Common Ways to Heat Large Spaces

heating large spacesIn an age of increasing energy costs and concerns about carbon footprints, it can be difficult to work out the most cost and energy-efficient way to heat large industrial premises such as warehouses and factories.

Businesses today are faced with the challenge of keeping costs down and reducing their carbon footprint, while providing a comfortable working environment for staff.

Here’s a look at 3 of the most popular and energy-efficient heating systems for large areas.

Ducted Heating

A heating unit is used to deliver warm air through a series of insulated, ducted vents. The system is controlled by a thermostat that can be set to the required temperature, allowing you to control the level of heating.

The air that is transferred into the heating unit is warmed, then dispersed back into the atmosphere. It is one of the easiest and most efficient ways of heating large spaces. Energy efficiency can be improved by properly installing and sealing the ducts. Cleaning the filters helps to improve air quality as less dust particles are dispersed into the environment. Ducted heating provides a safer heating solution for the workplace, as there are no exposed heating elements, naked flames or power cords to worry about.

Floor-Standing Units

Freestanding units can be positioned to generate heat where it’s needed most. These durable and robust units provide a cost-effective heating solution and can be thermostatically controlled.

Suspended Heating

Heaters suspended from the roof structure don’t interfere with working areas and allow you to maximise the floor space. These modern, compact units are easy to maintain and, because they’re out of harm’s way, are less likely to get damaged.

Warm air heating systems can run on natural gas, LPG or oil. For more information on our range of warehouse heating solutions, contact Winrow today.
