Why Some Heaters Won’t Work with Ductwork

Temporary Heater

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. Contractors that do a little heater homework will successfully supply hot air for their building. They also save money, which more than offsets the difference in rental costs.

There’s a question that seems to come up every winter. And every year, since BABFAR was founded in 1969, our answer has been the same.

For three decades, Ed Graham, Superintendent at Cranshaw Construction, has relied on BABFAR temporary heaters.

During that enduring relationship, Graham says he has never had a significant problem with BABFAR units. Surprisingly, that’s not why he has worked with BABFAR all this time. “I don’t worry about the BABFAR heating units. We get materials in and get to work,” says Graham. “The most important thing to me is turnaround time if we have a problem.”

Gambling Dice

Renting temporary heating equipment on a monthly basis to save money is like gambling with Mother Nature. If we have a short winter, heater rental costs will be low. If we have a long winter, costs will be high. But how can you predict the weather?

BABFAR customers never have to roll the dice because they rent temporary heaters by the season. The rental fee for all sizes of propane and natural gas heaters is capped after three consecutive months. Steam, hot water, and oil heaters have a five-month cap. Once the cap is reached, customers can keep the heating units as long as they need them.

Use the Total Cost of Renting (TCR) when Shopping Temporary Heaters

It’s springtime! Though winter recently ended, contractors have already started shopping for temporary heating units for next winter.

Typically, shopping involves collecting and comparing rental quotes from different vendors. But rental costs only represent the cost of getting temporary heating units on site. Contractors may also find that “low-cost” temporary heater rentals cost more in the long run. For a true cost comparison, contractors should consider costs that occur during the entire rental period, which can represent 85% to 90% of total costs!
