As large open spaces with lots of ventilation due to large doors and the constant flow of goods and storage, warehouses are notoriously difficult to heat. With staff working long and laborious hours within these spaces, the inclusion of a comfortable temperature could improve morale significantly, meaning better quality of work achieved.
The exposure to air means that traditional heaters are often unable to keep the warehouse at a comfortable temperature, and the ones that can waste a lot of energy and money to do so, given that a lot of the warm air escapes through the open doors. Due to the high ceilings in warehouses, lots of power is also wasted trying to heat the higher portion of the space, which is unnecessary, as most warehouse workers will spend the majority of their time on the ground.
With infrared heating, the job of keeping warehouses comfortable for staff is made much easier! Infrared heaters heat objects and people, rather than the air, meaning that they are not inhibited by the open doors or constant flow of goods and storage. This also means that the large size of the space has no effect on the competence of the heater, as it heats the objects and people within, not the vast amount of air.
Benefits of infrared heating in warehouses
- Easy to install and maintain
- Infrared heating panels can cut down heating bills by up to 80%.
- Can be installed in strategic places in order to keep certain areas of the space warm, such as areas which are frequently used by staff.
- Underfloor heating can be installed to produce comfortable heat from the ground up.
- Heaters can be turned off and on as needed, meaning unused areas of the space are not wasting energy and money – therefore, areas of the warehouse which are rarely used can avoid wasting energy.
- Infrared heating is much more energy efficient and eco-friendly than traditional heating methods.
- Unlike traditional heating that create stuffy and unpleasant conditions, infrared heaters produce a fresh, comfortable atmosphere for staff.
- Instant heat, so no waiting around in the chill!
- Compact and attractive for non-disruptive appearance
