No one likes to be cold. Especially not in their workplace, even machinery doesn’t appreciate operating in freezing conditions of cold winter months.

By adding supplemental warehouse heaters you can keep your equipment running smoothly and ensure the comfort and health of your employees. The first thing you need to know is how much heat is necessary to maintain comfort levels in your warehouse or

Although there are several aspects to take into consideration such as the number of times a door closes or opens in your warehouse, or if the building is well insulated, there is a general rule of thumb you can use to determine which heater size you’ll need.

You need about 10 watts of heating power for every square foot of the area you’re trying to heat.
So, if you have a 2,345-foot room you’ll want a heater that has 234.5 watts, or about 800 BTU/h.
1 watt is equal to 3.412141633 BTU/h.

Now that you know how much heat you need let’s look at some solutions and their features.

Options are available to fit any need. (More options available in radiant heating and hazardous location heating).

3. Warehouse Infrared Heaters

Radiant heaters use radiation to heat. Don’t worry, it’s not the kind that will make you grow a third eyeball – think more like how the sun heats the Earth.

This means they can heat materials fast and bring them to operating temperatures fast, making them a great option for commercial and industrial applications.

They do not use any fans and have no moving parts which means quiet operation.

They are energy savers, equipped with a reflective surface that prevents energy loss.

You can purchase a radiant heater as a fixed ceiling mount or as a portable heater.
