Warm Air & Radiant Heating Installation & Maintenance in Bristol & South West

Industrial warm air heater installation

Two popular methods of heating industrial spaces like warehouses and factories are warm air and radiant heating. Warm air heaters warm up the air in a room, while radiant heaters only warm objects and people in their direct line. Warm air heating is ideal for large spaces with movement in every corner of the room. On the other hand, radiant heating is beneficial when certain areas of the room are used more often than others. In some cases, a mixture of the two heating systems can be the most efficient option, particularly in much larger units.

Warm Air Heating

Warm air heating systems circulate heated air through ducts to warm buildings. Types include gas-fired, electric, and oil-fired systems. They efficiently heat large spaces, making them ideal for warehouses, factories, and retail environments. The main advantages include quick heating and uniform temperature distribution. These systems are cost-effective for heating expansive, open areas and work well in environments where maintaining consistent temperatures is essential for operations or comfort.

Benefits of Warm Air Heating

Rapid Warm-Up for Optimum Heat

Warm air heaters have a rapid warm-up time, allowing you to quickly achieve the desired temperature in your industrial space. A quick warm-up time is particularly beneficial when immediate warmth is required. For example, during cold mornings or after a temporary shutdown.

Long-Term Energy Cost Savings

Warm air heating installations are known for their energy efficiency. These systems maximise heat output while minimising fuel consumption. By heating your industrial space efficiently, they can help reduce energy costs and provide long-term savings on your heating bills.

Space-Saving Flexible Design

Warm air heating systems are typically compact and take up less space than other heating systems. Compact size is particularly advantageous in industrial settings where floor space is valuable. The compact design of warm air heaters allows for easy installation and maintenance without occupying excessive room.

Radiant Heating

Radiant heaters emit infrared radiation directly to heat objects and surfaces within a room. Unlike warm air heaters that primarily heat the air, radiant heaters transfer heat directly to people and other objects in their path. This type of heating warms the objects in the room, which in turn releases heat and raises the ambient temperature of the space.

Benefits of Warm Air Heating

Zone Heating for Maximum Comfort

Radiant heating allows for zone heating, meaning you can selectively heat specific areas within your industrial space, providing targeted warmth where needed most.

Energy Efficiency for Cost Savings

Radiant heating systems are known for their energy efficiency, as they primarily heat objects and surfaces rather than the entire air volume, reducing energy consumption.

Comfortable and Quiet Operation

Radiant heating provides a gentle, radiant warmth that directly heats objects and people, creating a cosy and comfortable environment without needing air movement. It operates silently.

Warm Air & Radiant Heating Installation Process

Our expert Project Managers will guide you in installing new heating for your industrial space to ensure the best outcome. This process begins by evaluating building size, ceiling height, insulation, and heating requirements before planning and designing the perfect system.

The installation process may require temporary downtime, depending on the system’s complexity. In the case of warm air systems, the process involves the installation of heating units and ductwork. Radiant systems require the installation of radiant tubes or panels. Although we try to minimise the disruption, some access to heated areas may be necessary.

We thoroughly test the system once the installation is complete to ensure it performs efficiently and safely. This helps us guarantee that all the specified requirements are met. We also provide ongoing maintenance packages to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the system. Our maintenance service includes routine check-ups, cleaning, and necessary repairs to maintain optimal performance and prevent any potential issues in the future.

Warm Air & Radiant Heating Servicing

Our maintenance engineers ensure your heaters perform as efficiently as possible through regular checks and inspections.

Cleaning and servicing components such as filters, fans, and burners help to remove accumulated dirt, debris, and dust. This allows the system to function efficiently. This results in better airflow, improved heating performance, and consistent temperature control throughout your industrial space.

Regular maintenance significantly extends the lifespan of your warm air heating system. By identifying and addressing minor issues early on, you can prevent them from escalating into major problems. Routine inspections, cleaning, and maintenance help keep all components in good working condition. This prolongs your equipment’s life and avoids premature replacement.

Warm Air & Radiant Heating Installation FAQ’s

What is the difference between warm air and radiant heating?

Warm air heating circulates heated air through ducts, while radiant heating warms surfaces and objects directly through infrared radiation. Warm air heating efficiently controls overall air temperature, whereas radiant heating provides direct, localised warmth.

How energy efficient are these heating systems?

Both systems can be highly energy-efficient. Warm air systems quickly heat large spaces with minimal heat loss, while radiant heating targets specific areas, reducing unnecessary heating and energy usage.

Can these systems be integrated with existing HVAC systems?

Integrating warm air and radiant heating with existing HVAC depends on the building layout and design. A professional assessment is recommended for compatibility.

How long does installation typically take?

The installation duration varies based on the system’s size and complexity. Warm air heating can take up to a few days, while radiant heating can vary. We aim to minimise disruption and complete installations efficiently.

What is the maintenance requirement for these heating systems?

Maintenance is generally low. Warm air systems require filter changes and duct cleaning, while radiant systems need periodic inspections. We offer maintenance services to ensure your system remains in optimal condition.
