Propane is the ideal energy source to temporarily or permanently heat buildings on construction sites and distribution centres. Manufacturers and equipment rental companies offer a wide range of propane heaters for multiple applications in the field. They can be used to dry out a damaged building, heat different areas on a construction site or cure concrete. Several types of units are available with different power levels. Some units can even reach 1,500,000 BTUs.
Direct-fire appliances: Heat the ambient air directly (forced air heater), with high energy efficiency. These appliances are divided into two classes – those with an exposed flame burner and those with a controlled flame burner (modern and more efficient). In both cases, good ventilation is required to evacuate the combustion of gases.
Radiant heaters: Indirectly heat the ambient air through a chamber that in turn releases heat (radiant heating). Pipes carry the heat to the desired locations; the combustion gases remain outside or are exhausted through a pipe.
Regardless of the choice of appliance, propane provides clean, even heat without mold or contaminated fumes.
