Do I Really Need a Heater in My Garage or Warehouse?
A garage or warehouse is one of the most common places that a heater is needed.
Because these kinds of areas are usually made mostly of concrete and metal, trying to heat the entire space is more difficult and more expensive. However, having a smaller, portable commercial heater can directly heat the areas being used by workers and allow you to keep your work force comfortable and productive without destroying your bottom line.
Another factor to consider is the health of your employees and yourself. Spend hours in a near-freezing environment is dangerous. Cold weakens the immune system, making everyone more vulnerable to communicable illnesses like rhinovirus, which causes the common cold. When people are cold, the blood circulation in their body slows and blood is drawn away from the extremities in order to route more warmth to the vital organs in and around the torso. This means people are more likely to have numb fingers and hands, making them more likely to have accidents when dealing with intricate handiwork or sharp objects like saws and screwdrivers. It also can contribute to falls as they have more trouble than normal moving their feet in a coordinated way.
So, do you need a heater in your garage of warehouse? We would say you do. Avoiding a near-frozen, virus-spreading, slow-moving workforce is well worth investing in a few heaters!
