COMMERCIAL TUBE HEATING AN ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE FOR INDUSTRIAL SPACES

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.

ELECTRIC HEATERS BRING COST RELIEF TO OUTDOOR HEATING

ELECTRIC HEATERS BRING COST RELIEF TO OUTDOOR HEATING

Gas prices.  Two words that can strike fear in even the healthiest of wallets, and in ways we might have previously never imagined.  Residential outdoor heating is one such example.  While different types of gas outdoor patio heaters including the Infrared Heater and Propane Heaters for outdoor areas can bring ample heat to your backyard entertaining, there is a more cost effective way.  The Electric Heater is revolutionizing outdoor patio heating by bringing the convenience of a Portable Heater together with reduced energy costs.

The convenience of electric heaters is a byproduct of their smaller size, which make them perfect for indoor or outdoor use.  The ability to be used indoors makes them a viable alternative or supplement to a smaller Garage Heateras well.  Available with movable mounting brackets, they can be permanently installed, eliminating the need for storage and maintenance.  And because they run on regular household currents, getting your new unit up and running is literally as easy as plugging in.  For the technically uninclined among us, such ease of use is a welcome feature.  Electric heaters also produce a  clean and odorless heat, sparing users from the types of fumes sometimes associated with gas or propane heaters.

The beauty of the electric heater is that it is a born conservationist with a built-in tendency to save resources.  It creates a heat that is naturally drawn to the objects surrounding it, minimizing the amount of heat that wanders off into the surrounding air and goes unused.  The result is a heater that wastes precious little time going from zero to one hundred percent capacity in mere seconds.  Best of all, operating costs across the board have proven to be a fraction of those produced by propane patio heaters.

Electric units operate at a 90% energy conversion rate, and studies show they produce just 1/10 the energy costs of LPG, or natural gas, Heaters.  Those numbers translate to real savings, and a warm feeling in your bank account as well as on your patio.  While the type of heater one purchases is a matter of personal taste and need, cost conscious consumers now have the choice to keep the heat up and costs down.  Simply put, when searching for patio heaters it pays to go electric.
