If you are in the market for a heating system this winter, I have put together a list of a few of the different types of heating systems available for your large industrial building or warehouse. I also have included some useful advice on how to enhance those heating systems with MacroAir big ceiling fans. The systems that are available include forced air, infrared, and radiant heat. What is right for you depends on your unique needs and situation.
There are Many Different Heating Systems
Forced Air Systems
A forced air heating system is the most common option that is found in industrial spaces or large buildings. Air is heated in a furnace that will then be blown through ducts to various vents. Many people may refer to this as a basic central heating system.
Infrared is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. So what does that mean? Infrared heating systems use a natural form of heat. It’s the same type of heat we feel from sources like the sun, fire or another person’s body heat. Heat is produced from infrared panels, which heat objects within a space.
Radiant Heat Systems
Buildings with a boiler have the option to use a radiant heating system. Water is heated in a boiler that is sent through tubes that are installed beneath the floor to distribute heat. Heat will radiate up through the floor to all the rooms in a home or building.
Big Fans Will Help You Get the Most Out of Your Heating Systems
Problem: The mentioned heating systems do not always effectively distribute warm air throughout an entire space. This leaves large areas too cold for inventory and uncomfortable for employees.
Solution: High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans can run in reverse, This function of HVLS fans helps distribute heat evenly throughout a large building during cold winters.
Create a Comfortable Space for Your Employees
MacroAir big fans’ reverse function heats up a large building or space by pushing warm air trapped at the ceiling upward and outward, forcing the layer of hot air to distribute down the building walls and evenly across the floor. The fans move the collected warm air, which provides a comfortable climate for any large building.
What type of heating system are you using and do you find that it distributes heat evenly? Just leave a comment below with the type of heating system you are using.
