How to choose a Construction Heater?

During the cold winter months, working with a construction heater becomes necessary. Whether it's to speed up the drying of walls under construction or to work in comfort, the construction heater becomes the perfect tool to keep your project warm!

What are the selection criteria for a heater?

In order to choose your construction heating system, it is necessary to take into account several criteria, including

  • The airtightness of the building,
  • The area of the building site to be heated,
  • The desired temperature,
  • The occupancy of the premises if the building site will be used by the public,
  • The humidity level,
  • The ventilation constraints,
  • The speed with which the ideal temperature must be reached,
  • The presence of harmful products on the site,

Depending on the type of site, the volume to be heated or the desired temperature, it is advisable to choose between 3 types of site heaters.
