There are a lot of variables to consider when creating a temporary heating plan for the winter. By preparing accordingly, you can find an efficient heating solution that is cost effective and keeps everyone safe. Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
What is your goal?
Defining your needs and determining what you are trying to accomplish will give you the foundation for a good heating plan. Are you just trying to keep everyone warm or is there another goal to keep in mind? Maybe you’re trying to thaw the ground or cure concrete. Different goals require different heaters – and sometimes a combination of different equipment.
What fuel source is available?
Not all heaters use the same fuel source. The last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time and effort into creating the perfect temporary heating solution only to find out in the end that the heaters you were planning to use require a fuel source that you don’t have available at the site.
What power is available?
Similarly to the topic of fuel source, different types of heaters require different types of power. Taking this into consideration before you start to browse for heaters will ultimately save you a lot of headache as opposed to neglecting to do so.
How many BTU’s do you need?
Determining the correct number of BTU’s needed for a project is essential to a successful temporary heating solution. In order to calculate the perfect number you will need to define the dimensions of the space, the preferred temperature of the inside, and the estimated temperature of the outside.
