Warm up your Warehouse: A Guide to Warehouse Heating This Winter

Warm up your Warehouse: A Guide to Warehouse Heating This Winter

Christmas is well and truly over and it’s finally hit us that we’re officially in the cold and dreary grip of winter. As we all return to work and the cold weather sets in, it’s worth giving some thought to the heating in your working environment – especially those who work in warehouses.

For a business to run smoothly, it’s important that it’s adequately heated. This isn’t any different for those who run warehouses. In fact, whether the entire building needs heating or just part of it, providing effective and efficient heating solutions is essential. This is extremely important during the winter when the temperatures dramatically drop.

Not providing good quality heat distribution can cause serious issues for the people who work in the building, as well as wasting energy which will cost the business more money.

 What do you Need to Consider?

There are certain things that you need to consider when it comes to properly heating your warehouse. This includes:

  • The heat load – This depends on what your warehouse contains. Does it have machinery or stock in there? Each will require a different heat load which will influence the type of heating solution you need.
  • Size of warehouse – How much space are you needing to heat? You need to work this out before choosing a heating solution.
  • Where it will be installed – Is there a specific location in which the heating product can be installed? Where will it be placed and will be in a place in which will give hot air to the whole warehouse.

Using Warm Air Heating

Warm air heating is when the heater is used to warm the air in the warehouse – therefore warming up your employees too! It works by drawing the air across a heat exchanger so that the temperature increases. It is then easily distributed around the whole warehouse by using a fan. It’s important that the air is distributed evenly throughout the space so that the temperature remains consistent throughout the day.

Radiant Heating

Radiant heating is ideal for those who are looking for industrial heating that can be tailored to their specific space. It uses a tube heating system that is designed for using within environments such as warehouses. It uses a lot less energy than a lot of other heating options.

It works by warming objects, surfaces and people directly – the opposite to warm air heating that warms the air. This means you don’t have to waste time heating up the air – it provides instant heating for the things that need it.

Each warehouse is completely different – you’ll need to tailor it to your specific needs.

If you’re looking for a reliable heating solution for your warehouse, we suggest installing Powrmatic heating. It’s a cost-effective and energy efficient solution that is perfect for meeting the requirements of your work environment – guaranteed to keep costs down and employees comfortable.
