COMMERCIAL TUBE HEATING AN ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE FOR INDUSTRIAL SPACES
It’s one thing to heat residential patios or other small, concentrated areas. In such cases gas outdoor patio heaters such as the Electric Heater, Energy Efficient Space Heaters, or even a Portable Propane Heater should do the trick. But what if the space you’re heating is the size of a manufacturing plant, warehouse, or even an aircraft hangar? That’s far too big of an area for smaller a typical Garage Heater to cover. It’s not easy warming up such hard to heat spaces, and as you might imagine it’s not cheap either. Commercial tube heaters, however, are making it possible for business owners to pipe in heat in an effective and economical way.
When you think of commercial tube heaters, think of the concept of the sun warming the earth. Believe it or not they operate on the same principle, and here’s how. With tube heaters heat is delivered to the floor zone, not the ceiling. As the source of heat reaches the floor level it is absorbed by everything there, including floors, machinery, fixtures, etc. Because the difference between the floor and ceiling temperature is lower than with conventional air systems, heat loss is diminished, and as a result so are your heating bills. But enough of the science lesson, let’s get on to the important stuff. Namely, how much can you save?
Studies show that commercial tube heaters can reduce your heating bill by as much as 20%-50%. Exactly how much you’ll save depends on a number of variables, but this means that over the course of a few short years a system such as this can pay for itself. In a business that incurs many different types of overhead, the amount of savings provided by this type of heating system can be quite significant.
Tube heaters are very easy to install and require very little maintenance. In addition, their compact size allows for placement in small, hard to heat areas as well as larger spaces. From plants and warehouses to loading docks, garages, machine shops and beyond, hard to heat industrial areas of all kinds can benefit from this economical and efficient way of heating. Though there are many types of heaters to choose from, quiet, draft free heat and the savings that go with it suggest a unique opportunity that business owners of all stripes are warming up to.
