A key business goal for many companies across the UK is to save money where they can – especially when it comes to heating. When installing heating in a commercial space, such as a warehouse or factory, one of the most important factors you need to consider is how much this will cost your business.
Radiant heating is the ideal choice for any business that requires efficient heating on an industrial scale. Whatever the size of your premises, a radiant tube heating system can be tailored to fit your specific requirements.
But what exactly is radiant heating, how does it work, and how can it save your business money? Read on to find out.
What is radiant tube heating?
Like the sun, radiant heating uses infrared radiation. It works by warming all solid objects and surfaces in its path. It does this through infrared waves, which are usually mounted overhead and directed down to a low level by a reflector.
You can also use radiant heating systems to heat specific areas of your business that are used the most frequently, using spot heating. Mounting radiant heaters above these high frequency areas will keep them heated consistently and efficiently, rather than directing heat to every area of your premises where it might not be needed.
How can radiant heating save your business money?
Radiant heating can help you to save money on your energy bills because it is a targeted form of heat. By opting for radiant tube heating, you can save energy that would otherwise be used heating up the air in areas where it is unnecessary. It also means that your space can be heated efficiently, as radiant heaters provide instant heat.
Not only could it cut your utility bills, the installation of a radiant tube heating system also doesn’t require any ductwork. It is ceiling mounted and space saving, requiring no exterior vents and offering better indoor air quality.
