Is Your Warehouse Heating Adaptable during Winter?

There is one thing you can be sure of in the UK – that you can never be sure what the weather will be like next. Granted, our weather isn’t quite as extreme as other places who are battling minus 30 degrees in winter or 45 degrees in the summer, but we have our own problems to deal with.

The winter of 2018/2019 has been mild so far, meaning that your warehouse heating might not have been too energy-intensive or costly – so far. However, The Met Office has predicted snow, ice, and sleet to sweep over the nation in the coming weeks, making it much harder to heat your warehouse. As energy prices could increase by around 10% in the Spring of 2019, it’s useful to make sure you’re in control of your boiler.

Adaptability

With the weather as tumultuous as it is, you need to make sure your warehouse heating system can adapt to the changing temperatures. Keeping your heating on at the same level come rain or shine is going to lead to problems for your business.

Cost

Being able to adapt the temperature of your warehouse means being able to adapt the amount of energy you are using. If temperatures are warmer, you can afford to use less heat in your warehouse and therefore save money on your heating bill. You’ll only use the energy you need.

Environment

By reducing the amount of energy you waste and using energy more efficiently, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint. This helps you protect the environment. Keeping your heating temperature the same at all times regardless of the weather can lead to excessive use of the fossil fuels that power your boiler, leading to greater volumes of greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

Staff

If you have a lot of staff working in your warehouse, you need to be able to adjust the temperature easily for their benefit. Staff who are too hot or too cold become irritated and unhappy, reducing the overall productivity of your workforce. They need to be able to keep the temperature at a desirable level to stay satisfied.

How to make sure your warehouse heating is easily adjustable?

Sometimes, making sure your heating system can respond to the changes in the weather is as simple as making sure your staff know where to locate the thermostat, timer, or boiler. Sometimes you may need to take extra steps like fitting a more modern boiler that can make quick adjustments. Other things to consider are:

  • Smart thermostats – These are connected to the internet allowing you to control your boiler remotely using a mobile phone or tablet. Even when you are not in your warehouse, you can change the temperature settings, turning it off if it’s not in use, or turning it on before your staff arrives.
  • Smart meters – For more accurate pricing information, energy savings, and cost savings on your energy bill.
  • A more energy efficient boiler – It will save you money and lower your carbon footprint.

Heating your warehouse for less through the winter is easier than ever with the introduction of new boiler technology. It might just be the best way to keep your staff happy and productive throughout 2019.

Lower your January industrial heating bills

One major challenge for any business is managing energy costs in the winter. As the temperatures go down, the heating bills go up. This can be particularly difficult for businesses operating within industrial buildings. These buildings are typically comprised of large open spaces with a greater need for ventilation and are notoriously difficult to keep warm.

Why you must have industrial heating

Regardless of the associated challenges of heating a given space, it still needs to happen. It’s of the utmost importance that employees are comfortable at work, both for employee retention and well being, as well as for productivity. Furthermore, the government has a set of mandated ‘Workplace Temperatures” which must be adhered to. The Approved Code of Practice suggests the minimum temperature in a workplace should normally be at least 16 degrees Celsius. If the work involves rigorous physical effort, the temperature should be at least 13 degrees Celsius.  It is the legal responsibility of every employer to provide a reasonable level of comfort for their employees.

Heating at a lower cost

Maintaining a consistent level of heat is difficult in an industrial setting at the best of times, let alone doing so without breaking the bank. Fortunately, we at Winrow have developed an innovative approach that not only overcomes the specific challenges of industrial heating, but also presents a significant reduction in energy bills.

Winrow utilises the latest techniques in energy heat recovery to offer bespoke factory heating systems. In many cases, this approach represents as much as a 30% savings on running costs in addition to significant capital cost savings.

Why you need campsite heating

An industrial heating system could add a touch of luxury to your campsite’s pitches to attract more business all year round.

As more budget-conscious holiday makers choose to holiday at home, now is a fantastic time to own a campsite.

Here at Winrow Industrial Heating we’ve come up with six great reasons why a campsite heating system will prove to be a lucrative investment.

The rise of ‘glamping’Fire Close Up

Glamping has quickly risen in popularity as people holidaying at home look for ways to get more for their money. Offering heating to campers adds an element of the comfort and luxury that is associated with glamping to their camping experience.

Child-friendly

England’s unpredictable weather can make pre-booking a camping trip with kids a bit of a risk.  Those with babies or very young children may be put off by the risk of very cold weather.  Being able to provide campers with campsite heating gives parents reassurance that young children will be kept comfortable no matter what the weather decides to do.

Unique selling point

Whilst many campsites offer electric hook-ups, campsite heating is far harder to come by.  Offering campers heating will give you the edge over your competitors.

More bookings during the colder months

Most campsites are fully booked during the summer months but can struggle to fill pitches during spring, autumn and winter when temperatures are far less predictable.  Offering customers campsite heating can help to encourage more bookings during the colder months.

Charge more per pitch

Giving campers the option to add heating increases the value of your pitches.

Get people talking about your campsite

Customers are more likely to talk about their experience if you’re offering something a bit different.  Get customers talking to increase awareness of your campsite both online and off.
