How to choose a heating system?
Propane and/or natural gas heaters, electric heaters and oil heaters are essential on job sites to stay warm when temperatures drop. Each type of heating system has its advantages in terms of energy efficiency and emissions.
Propane and/or natural gas heaters use clean and readily available fuels. Their low emissions make them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Benefits include moderate operating costs and relatively easy installation. They are often used to heat businesses, industries or construction sites.
Electric heaters are a popular solution because they provide heat quickly and accurately. They are easy to install and require no ductwork or chimneys, making them ideal for indoor spaces. These heaters are the most practical; however, if you choose a 600-volt heater, you will need to have it installed by a qualified electrician.
Oil heaters use fuel oil to generate heat. They are especially prized for their energy efficiency and ability to heat large areas. If you choose an oil furnace, make sure the room is well ventilated. Oil heaters are great for maintaining temperature in site buildings or temporary facilities.
