Commercial unit heaters can be electric, gas, hydronic, or combinations thereof (such as the air blower being electric and the heater being gas fired for example). With efficiencies up to 97 % as with Modine’s “Effinity” gas unit heater, it’s no wonder these units are popular in warehouses and large commercial spaces.
Zone heating is also a common request, and the right commercial unit heater can handle multiple zones easily and efficiently, directing the heat to where it is most needed, such as Reznor’s suite of commercial heating units.
The new compact minimalistic designs reduce bulk, save space and provide a more aesthetic look, yet do not compromise on durability. They still have a great range of output from 30,000 BTUs to 400,000 BTU’s.
Unit Heater Types
There are commercial unit heaters for every application. Not solely how it’s powered, but also by function, and location. Such as interior, exterior roof mounted wall mounted; as well as capacity – how much heat each industrial heating unit needs to push through in order to maintain ultimate climate control, etc:
Fresh Air Commercial Heating Units
Gas-fired, separated combustion unit heaters use outside air for combustion to prevent dirt, lint, dust or other contaminate in the interior atmosphere from being consumed upon burning. Nothing but clean, fresh air would be burned in the combustion chamber.
Custom Commercial Heating Units
Companies such as Carrier (who invented air conditioning) and Lennox due to industry longevity have an immense range of commercial heating unit products for literally every application and situation. Lennox units can also be customized to meet each building’s specific needs.
If an industrial heating application requires a heating unit to stand up to a corrosive environment (such as Marine) those are available as well – Modine specifically has an anti commercial heating unit product.
Commercial IAQ & IEQ
Indoor Air Quality and Indoor Environmental Quality are paramount more than ever. Especially in large spaces such as schools, medical buildings, high rises, tourist attractions, government buildings, industry and warehouses. Infrastructure improvements are always a concern and choosing the right options particularly in our current environment, health is at the forefront more than any time previously. We are certified IAQ specialists and can provide not just Heating Unit options, but a whole building wellness approach for the property itself and those in it.
Aesthetic Commercial Heating Units
No longer ugly – architecturally minded forced-air unit heaters no only combine quiet, reliable heating, but now with attractive cabinet design options. They can still handle rugged conditions and industrial, institutional and commercial applications, yet looking good while doing it. Simply make the aesthetic request at the time of quoting.
Commercial Heating Unit Placement
Whether it be exterior roof top (RTU’s), interior ceiling mounted, wall mounted horizontally or vertically, cabinet heaters (which can also be recessed to be flush with the wall or ceiling) such as Ouellet’s OCA’s universal mounting unit, suspended heaters, rest assured there is a solution for every property and application.
Unit heaters have a comparatively more modest installation cost and are capable of warming large areas without an extensive duct system. The ideal use for commercial unit heaters are in properties such as manufacturing facilities, warehouses, distribution centers, greenhouses and equipment storage rooms.
