Keeping your workplace warm during the winter is a priority. In fact, employee efficiency can suffer when the temperature of your space isn’t comfortable.
Usually office spaces and retail buildings are designed to keep customers and employees insulated from harsh conditions, but sometimes these systems fail. Do you have a strategy in place?
5 Tips for Heating Your Workplace
- Understand your goal for heating the space. There are plenty of reasons to use portable heating systems. Are you looking to heat one particular area? Do you require a heating system while a HVAC unit is under maintenance? Or perhaps, your business is open to the public but under mild construction? All of these situations have solutions, but each circumstance may require a different kind of temporary heater.
- Calculate the cubic feet. Knowing how much area you need to heat is part of the equation and will determine the required BTU. Our heat calculator can help you decide.
- Determine the heat loss. Hot air rises, so if your space has high ceilings or you need to control the heat on several floors, understanding how your space is structured becomes a factor.
- Choose a fuel source. Your building will most likely have electricity, although in an emergency situation you may need a unit that runs on diesel or propane. Make sure you understand which fuel sources are available when rental is necessary.
- Learn about the install. Portable heating equipment comes in a variety of sizes for several different spaces, so understanding how to install a unit for efficient air flow is important. Visit our heating resources for more information about how to operate our portable heaters.
Rent Electric Heaters & Indirect Fired Heaters for Your Workplace
Temporary heating solutions vary depending on the application; however, areas that receive a lot of foot traffic and are well insulated should consider electric heater rental or an indirect fired heater rental.
Electric heaters are easy to operate, safe for the office and available in a variety of sizes. Commercial space heaters are small electric heaters that are perfect for office environments because they deliver clean air quietly.
Indirect fired heaters are great for spaces where a ducted heating solution is viable. Typically these units are installed outside of the building and will pump clean, dry air through an installed duct into the space.
