5 Reasons Electric Heaters are Best to Heat Special Events

Posted by Tina Behnke

Crisp winter air is refreshing at an outdoor event — as long as guests have somewhere to go to get relief from the chill.  Or you may have a winter wedding at a beautiful venue but need heating in a tent or outdoor pavillion.  The obvious solution to keeping guests defrosted and happy is a using a portable heater. 

You want to maintain the comfort and safety of your guests so if the heater releases dangerous fumes or is a potential fire hazard, then you aren't doing your guests any favors.  A portable electric tent heater is a perfect option for heating special event tents.

5 Reasons to use Electric Heaters for Special Events

  1. Safe for environment and guests -- An electric tent heater has does not require a fuel source so although you may be using a generator to power the heater your guests won't have to worry about injury or accidents from fuel lines or open flames. 

  2. No open flames or fumes to vent -- With an electric tent heater, there is no need to ventilate harmful fumes from the space and no fire hazard from an open flame.  

  3. Can be used in small and large spaces -- Electric heaters come in various sizes and offer guests just the right amount of warmth at even the smallest tent parties without being a safety hazard. 

  4. Small and easy to place in/around the space -- Electric heaters have a small footprint and start at 15 pounds and are just 8x12x12” in size making the heaters easy to move and place around your space. 

  5. Clean and efficient -- Free from emission of harmful chemicals, an electric tent heater is safe for the environment.  The stainless jacketed heating coils within the heater provide reliable, even heat distribution for maximum comfort.

Electric Construction Heaters Keep Winter Projects on Schedule

Posted by Tina Behnke

Weather is on everyone’s mind this time of year, when the temperature drops and we scramble for hats and gloves and heavy coats.  Even if you don't get huge snowfalls, the weather can be downright damp and slow work progress in outdoor or unconditioned construction areas.

Now think about working OUTSIDE in the cold or in an unconditioned construction space!

Construction managers, building superintendants, physical plant managers and even disaster relief coordinators must be ready to battle the cold to keep projects on schedule and on budget.  Lost time means lost money!  But what if it’s colder than expected, or the weather takes an unanticipated turn for the worse? These weather events can put a real kink in your ability to keep your project on schedule and on budget.

Cold winter weather often calls for heat--fast. Now is the time to consider using portable electric construction heaters.

Here are 3 reasons to choose electric over gas or propane heaters:

  1. Electric construction heaters are convenient. They require electricity only.  No propane or other fuel is required.  Connect the proper power and the temperature starts rising. Gas or propane heaters require electricity for blowers and thermostats, but they must also be refueled regularly. Refueling can be costly and a real burden.

  2. Electric construction heaters are safe. Gas or propane heaters must be vented to lower the risk of carbon monoxide accumulation and poisoning. Not to mention the fact that many government sites won't allow heaters with propane tanks as a safety precaution. 

  3. Electric construction heaters are adaptable.  You can heat an area for people, an empty space to comply with fire codes or even a space with construction materials.  Heaters can be placed in small or large spaces since there are no fumes -- a plus to ensure your site is environmentally friendly and won't be harmful to workers or people in the area. 

Portable electric construction heaters come in a wide range of sizes and capacities, appropriate for small confined spaces, large open construction sites, warehouses, shelter tents, even outdoor venues.  A heating professional can help you evaluate your needs and determine the best heater to address those needs at a price you can afford.

Does it make sense to buy?

Or is this a one-time or occasional use, perhaps a single event or an emergency? 

Renting electric construction heaters may make the most economic sense. The beauty of renting portable heaters is you don’t have to pay the purchase price for an appliance you may only use a few times a year. You also won’t have to give up precious storage space during the months it isn’t in use.  And when you have another construction job to heat, the requirements may be totally different and you may need different heaters to get the job done.

Keeping your construction site, warehouse, or emergency shelter warm this winter doesn’t have to be complicated, even in the bitterest cold. Make contingency plans to divert disaster now and make electric construction heaters a mainstay of those plans.
