What to Know About Choosing a Temporary Construction Heater?

Written by Babfar on . Posted in News

Construction sites or any other outdoor job sites can be a difficult place to work when the temperature starts to drop. To keep materials and workers safe and warm, you need a temporary heater you can rely on throughout the winter. BABFAR is the Northeast’s heating industry leader, providing various types of temporary heating rental models. Here’s what to know before you choose your next temporary heater.

Find the Safest Option

There are multiple concerns when using a heater at a construction, job, or event site; the heater must adhere to all city and county safety regulations and may require certain permits for use.  You can contact the local fire marshal to ensure that your heater meets the district’s standards.

The most important consideration when choosing a heating solution for construction sites is worker safety. BABFAR temporary heaters are designed with a positive pressure system that reduces the number of airborne contaminants, keeping the air around it clean and safe.

Look for Reliability

When installing a temporary heater at your site, you want dependable heating. Keeping a consistent temperature will ensure that your workers are comfortable. The outdoor air temperature shouldn’t impact the temperature provided by the heater.

BABFAR heaters provide a constant discharge of 225°F. When the outdoor air changes, the fuel flow automatically adjusts to maintain a stable temperature. This keeps both the workers at the site comfortable and follows local safety regulations.

Choose the Right Heater

There are many factors to consider when selecting your heaters, such as location, weather, and budget. Here are some of the temporary heating options you might consider for your job site:

  • Direct Fired Heaters: Air passes through an open flame, exporting heat; the least expensive and most efficient heating option.
  • Indirect Fired Heaters: Cold air is drawn into two separate chambers. One chamber is heated and vents outside. Cold air is pulled through the heated chamber through sealed tubes where it is warmed and discharged. These units require more parts and are less efficient, but produce cleaner air.
  • Electric Heaters: These run on electricity and are best used for smaller areas. They are more costly to operate and produce fewer fumes but do not provide ventilation to the space. Also, they can be difficult to run on the temporary power that is typical on job sites starting out.

Go for the Industry’s Best

As the cold winter months arrive, it’s essential that your employees are kept safe and warm on the job. BABFAR’s rental heaters keep your workers comfortable, and the industry experts will provide all you may need to know about choosing the right heating solution for your job.
