By making their outdoor spaces warmer and more inviting, businesses such as pubs, restaurants and open-air venues often see a marked improvement in trade and much healthier profits.
Commercial outdoor electric heaters are a fantastic way to take the indoor feeling outdoors, or bring added comfort to draughty rooms and semi-exposed structures.
Saving time, money and the environment – commercial electric patio heaters are great for business. This makes them a popular choice among commercial facilities professionals and owner-managers.
Commercial infrared heaters offer several advantages that make them a popular choice for various commercial applications. Here are some reasons why you might choose commercial infrared heaters:
Energy Efficiency: Infrared heaters are highly energy-efficient because they heat objects and people directly, rather than heating the air. This focused heating reduces energy wastage and results in lower operating costs.
Rapid Heating: Infrared heaters provide instant heat, so there's no need to wait for the heating elements to warm up. This makes them ideal for spaces where quick heating is required, such as loading docks or warehouses.
Zone Heating: Infrared heaters can be strategically placed to create specific heating zones. This allows you to heat only the areas where people or activities are present, saving energy and reducing heating costs.
Comfortable Heat: Infrared heaters emit radiant heat, which feels comfortable and natural. Unlike forced-air systems, they don't create drafts or dry out the air, leading to a more comfortable indoor environment.
Durability: Commercial-grade infrared heaters are designed for heavy-duty use and are built to last. They can withstand the rigors of commercial and industrial environments, making them a reliable heating solution.
The Shadow XT is a high quality, powerful commercial heater with bluetooth control.
Low Maintenance: Infrared heaters generally have fewer moving parts than traditional heating systems, reducing the need for maintenance and repairs. This can result in lower ongoing operational costs.
Safety: Infrared heaters are considered safe because they don't involve open flames or produce carbon monoxide. They are also less likely to cause accidental burns because they primarily heat objects rather than the air.
Noise Reduction: Infrared heaters are typically quieter than forced-air systems, making them a good choice for spaces where noise control is important, such as offices or libraries.
Customizable: Commercial infrared heaters come in various sizes, configurations, and fuel types (e.g., natural gas, propane, electric), allowing you to choose the best option for your specific needs and space.
Environmental Benefits: Infrared heaters are considered more environmentally friendly than some other heating methods because they produce fewer emissions and can be powered by cleaner energy sources.
Precise Control: Many commercial infrared heaters come with advanced control options, allowing you to adjust the heat output and direction to suit changing conditions.
Versatility: Infrared heaters are versatile and can be used in a wide range of commercial applications, including manufacturing facilities, warehouses, restaurants, outdoor patios, and more.
When choosing commercial infrared heaters, it's essential to consider factors such as the size of the space, heating requirements, energy sources, safety considerations, and budget. Additionally, consulting with a heating professional can help you select the most suitable infrared heating solution for your specific needs.
Although they all operate in a similar way, some electric commercial patio heaters are better equipped for certain kinds of space.
