Who better to ask about choosing temporary heaters than someone who has been in the construction business for more than 30 years? Tapping into that kind of experience, Larry, a Construction Superintendent at Holdsworth Klimowski, shares his thoughts on selecting heating units.
“Of course you want reliability and serviceability,” Larry says. He opts for heaters that are simple to set up, use, and maintain. Larry has been known do minor repairs over the phone with Babfar. “I worry less about materials or the building freezing if I know that I can get a technician on the first call and, if needed, that they’ll be on site within the day.”
In recent posts, such as Use the Total Cost of Renting (TCR) Method when Shopping for Temporary Heaters, we provide helpful tips on choosing a temporary heater that meets your needs and budget. We encourage readers to look beyond temporary heater rental costs (which may only be a couple of hundred dollars per month) to installation costs, fuel efficiency, heat output, and service costs when choosing heating equipment.
Temporary heater rental fees can differ by a few hundred dollars. So, one might also think the differences between heaters, themselves, are equally as narrow. They’re not.
Contractors have much more to consider, including discharge temperature, cubic-feet-per-minute capacity, fuel efficiency, service and support, response time, and positive pressurization.
