Warehouse Heating How-To

Warm air heating is one of the most popular solutions for heating large spaces like warehouses. As the name suggests, the process involves heating air and then using a fan to distribute the hot air around the space, creating a sun-like warming effect and a comfortable working environment.

There are many types of warm air heater available, such as gas, electric, and oil but the biggest challenge with warehouse heating is the even distribution of warmth throughout a space. A combination of placement, size, and power of the heater can be key in making sure that the warehouse doesn’t have any cold spots.

It’s also essential to ensure that they’re placed correctly if you have a lot of dense racking. Warm air heating is the most efficient system to heat densely populated spaces because the air movement will carry the heat into and through most racking as long as your heaters are appropriately placed.

However, another challenge presented by warehouse heating is that heat rises. Destratification is an important consideration when heating lofty spaces as it helps redistribute the rising heat down to floor level.
