Heating Solution Cheat Sheet

Baseboard electric heater

Baseboard electric heater uses metal coils and convection to produce warmth and are usually placed near windows to compensate for heat escaping through the glass. The heat produced is controlled by a thermostat which either directs the baseboard heater via a remote line or from within the unit itself.

Ceiling electric heater

Ceiling electric heater is quiet, energy-efficient and conveniently situated right over your head where it won't clutter up your living space. This device works by forcing electricity through high-resistance wires. Ceiling electric heaters usually have fans that force the heat down on a room, giving you a great heating solution for offices and other workplaces.

Cove radiant heater

Cove radiant heater warms you and your home by using electricity to produce focused Infrared heat. The Infrared energy does not travel through the air, but is instead radiated, enabling it to warm you and other solid objects in the room with minimal resistance. Infrared heat travels freely, so you can place the heater wherever you think that it won't get in your way. Cove radiant heaters are energy-efficient and cost-effective.

Floor electric heaters

Floor electric heaters use resistors to generate heat from electricity that's struggling to pass through wires. The heat is then conducted into the floor, giving your household warmth from the ground up. Floor electric heaters can also come in the form of heating mats that are ideal to place at your home or workplace's doors. These floor heaters provide instant comfort for people who've just been through the cold outdoors.

Hazardous location heaters

Hazardous location heaters are crafted specifically to provide industrial heating along with maximum durability. They can be made of various materials to be able to withstand accidents involving explosions, falling objects, corrosive chemical exposure and much more. Heat is usually provided by hazardous location heaters through the process of convection. That is, air is sucked in from the bottom of the heater, allowed to come in contact with heating coils or heat exchangers, then released up front to provide warmth to an area.

Infrared electric heaters

Infrared electric heaters are energy-efficient, they don't produce harmful by-products, they're quiet and they can be positioned just about anywhere. They make use of radiation instead of convection, which means heat reaches you directly and is not lost in the air. Infrared electric heaters use infrared light bulbs and reflectors to focus an optimum amount of infrared light in a given area to produce heat. The primary recipients of heat are solid objects such as your body and surfaces like tiles.

Infrared gas heaters

Infrared gas heaters are a highly effective and holistic way of heating large areas. As the name suggests, this type of heating solution is powered by fossil fuels and emits infrared rays as a result. The main difference of an infrared gas heater from an electric one is its energy source. Using propane and natural gas, this type of heater warms a steel tube that produces infrared light. As a result of the pipe being heated, air around it is also warmed. This makes infrared gas heaters not only sources of radiant heat, they also distribute warmer air through convection.

Packaged duct heater

Packaged duct heater makes use of existing duct ways in a home or a building to distribute heat. The principle is simple: the heater is installed, cool air is allowed to pass through it and is warmed by heating coils or heat transfer terminals. The warm air is released into the rooms where the ducts lead, giving everyone in a house or building heating through convection.

Patio heaters

Patio heaters use either fossil fuels or electricity to emit infrared rays over a given space. Infrared travel by the process of radiation, which doesn't require heat to pass through air All you have to do is turn on the heater and it's like having gentle sunlight shining on your skin. Due to the infrared rays not needing air to travel, you don't have to worry about breezes blowing the heat away. The warmth will always go directly to you and other objects within the heater's range, making sure none of the energy that it took to create heat is wasted.

Portable electric heaters

Portable electric heaters are great for small to medium-sized rooms that haven't been fitted with traditional built-in heating solutions. All you need to do is to carry the light, portable electric heater in, plug it to an outlet, then feel the warmth start to fill the space within minutes. Portable electric heaters can warm up areas up to 1,000 square feet in size. Portable electric heaters are light, well-insulated and easy to carry.

PowerBlanket drum and barrel heaters

PowerBlanket drum and barrel heaters are wrap-around heating solutions with thermostats that you can program so that your materials are never underheated or overheated. PowerBlankets are flexible enough to suit most drum and barrel sizes at home or in industrial sites. These heating solutions wrap around containers securely, holding on to drums and barrels even in rough handling conditions. PowerBlankets start warming your temperature-sensitive materials within minutes, distributing heat evenly with the patented GreenHeat technology. PowerBlankets has a low daily operational cost since it makes use of energy very efficiently. They're safe and are cool to touch on the exterior.

Propane and kerosene heaters

Propane and kerosene heaters use fossil fuels to provide heating to homes, institutions and industrial sites. When buying a propane or kerosene heater, be sure to check if the device is approved for home use. Some types of fuel-based heaters can pose health risks due to the production of carbon monoxide, a gaseous compound that can be deadly when inhaled in large amounts. Consult the shop attendants and the manual to make sure you're getting the safe models.

Radiant ceiling panels

Radiant ceiling panels are a heating solution that can be used for homes and offices to warm objects and occupants in a safe and energy-efficient way. Radiant ceiling panels can be dropped easily with T-bar mounted ceilings or can be surface-mounted with the aid of optional frames. With the right position, a radiant ceiling panel heater can make a freezing room warm in just several minutes.

Snow melting mat

Snow melting mats are actually two layers of high-quality rubber sandwiching a small electric heater inside. Like all electric heaters, this one lets electricity to pass through a resistor, generating heat in the process. Snow melting mats can deal with up to two inches of snow or ice in an hour, making sure that the areas where you, your family or your customers tread always safe.

Unit gas heaters

Unit gas heaters come in different designs and sizes with variable capacities for heating areas of different sizes. These heaters can be mounted on ceilings or shelves, giving you the freedom to position them where they can be most effective. Like other gas-fired heaters, unit gas heaters burn fossil fuels and transfer heat to the air using tubular heat exchangers. The warm air is then blown into the target space for greater efficiency and an even distribution.

Wall electric heaters

Wall electric heaters are placed on a wall and they are used to provide heat to a room with the use of either radiation or convection. This is perfect for both home and office use. Wall electric heaters are easily installed and can be serviced with an equal amount of ease. This makes maintaining the unit a snap, leaving you with no hassles and more time to enjoy the heat.

Washdown electric heaters

Washdown electric heaters are a perfect heating solution for places that can get very dusty and very dirty. These heaters are tightly enclosed, giving them what it takes to last long in these environments without requiring maintenance. Washdown heaters are usually utilized in industrial environments. These heaters are engineered to last for several years without maintenance under tough conditions.
