Keep Jack Frost at Bay – Rent a Heater for Your Business This Winter
It’s important to outfit your business with equipment that prepares your staff for harsh seasonal weather. Our Mid-west winters can give us quite a beating, which is why heaters are a critical winter weather accessory. Heaters can help protect you and your employees from health emergencies like frostbite. They can also help keep ice out of your important machinery to ensure its smooth operation and prevent costly repairs.
There are several different kinds of heaters available, and they each have their own specific set of advantages. Let’s take a look at a few and consider each set of benefits for your business:
Electric heaters are one of the most familiar types of heaters on the market. They’re not only portable, but they’re also quiet and ideal for indoor use. Choose an electric heater if your staff is working in a confined space — for example, if you’re remodeling a room in a client’s house or if you need heat in a small manufacturing room in your warehouse.
Indirect Fired Diesel
Your project may not have access to electricity, but that doesn’t mean your staff needs to risk hypothermia through the work day to get the job done. An indirect fired diesel heater offers greater portability than its electric counterpart, so you can use it in exterior applications such as railyards, foundation pours and airport tarmacs.
Hydronic Surface Heaters
Hydronic surface heaters are ideal for keeping ice from interrupting your project while you’re pouring and curing concrete. They can also be used for thawing out frozen terrain and preventing frost during your exterior project.
You’ll want to make sure your heater is set up with the proper accessories to ensure its smooth operation. Start by adding the following accessories:
- Air handler — To make sure the heat it’s generating is distributed properly
- Hoses and ductwork — To direct the heat to where you need it
- Pumps — To ensure heat can reach each area you need it
If you’re not ready to purchase a heater for your business, renting a heater is a great option for several reasons:
- It’s a good way to evaluate which kind of heater works best for your needs.
- It’s cost-effective and won’t add much to your operating expenses.
- You don’t need to make a long-term commitment, so you’ll save money and storage space during milder winters.
