Employee satisfaction is a key part of ensuring that a business is running smoothly and productively and keeping the temperature right is a big part of this. If the temperature drops in the office, it can have a number of negative effects including illness such as colds. Luckily, there are plenty of commercial heating solutions for the office so you can keep the temperatures up for your employees.
Infrared or radiant heaters emit heat which is very intense and localised. They can generally project heat up to 6m and are keep for keeping people warm and assisting with drying paintwork and plaster. Infrared heaters use high frequency heat waves which penetrate the air without heating which means they heat people and objects not the atmosphere. These heaters are great for offices as they heat people quickly and they have lower running costs because no heat is lost through drafts.
Fan heaters are a popular choice for office heating, they are ideal for heating small offices and make a great portable temporary heating solution. They have overheat protection and thermostatically controlled heat which means they are safe to use, especially in environments where safety is key. They also have automatic tip-over cut out protection which protects against toppling. As fan heaters have low noise emission, they work well in offices and aren’t distracting.
Indirect Fuel Heaters
For large offices or events, indirect fuel heaters may be necessary. These are a bigger solution for providing temporary heating for large spaces; indirect fuel heaters pump large volumes of warm, clean, dry air into a space without raising humidity levels. This type of heater is great for use in spaces where ventilation is limited and they can also be used for drying applications in conjunction with dehumidifiers.
