The best way to heat a garage, workshop or showroom

The best way to heat a garage, workshop or showroom is air heating. Because it is quick, comfortable and cost effective. Air heating is therefore widely used for heating a garage workshop and -showroom. After all, with cars driving in and out, a hot water garage heater keeps the temperature stable by quickly reheating the air.

Various heating units for garages

Where you mainly see gas-fired unit air heaters in the garage workshop to achieve rapid heating (HR and XR series), in showrooms you often see hot water garage heaters (WWH series) that are connected to the central heating boiler in the offices. The advantage of WWH heaters as heating units for garages is that they can be built into the suspended ceiling of a showroom and blow out in all directions using a 4-sided or 6-sided plenum.

In this way the heat is well distributed. If there is a heat pump or heat network, both showroom and garage workshop can be heated with the WWH-LT. which can even be switched to cooling mode.

Air curtain as garage workshop heater

Additionally, we recommend the use of an air curtain (ACM series) as garage workshop heater to prevent heat being lost from the garage workshop or showroom when cars are driven in or out. If you want to leave the showroom doors open, an ACM air curtain is recommended as garage workshop heater to prevent the heat from the showroom or workshop disappearing to the outside (or in the summer: the heat from coming in.)

The use of WCU destratification units or rendovent fans is also recommended to help equalise the room temperature, reducing the energy bill, even heat distribution and a nice ‘summer breeze’ because of the air recirculation.

Air circulation

Application of destratification fans or (ceiling)fans ensures a good heat distribution and optimises the use of the heated air because the heat loss through the roof is reduced.
