Unit heaters produce extremely high amounts of heat so they are commonly found in large garages, workshops, and warehouses.
These unit heaters can feature quiet operation, adjustable louvers, built in thermostats, and thermal protection with automatic reset.
These heaters are able to take in cool air and heat it up with a heated coil. The hot air is then able to rise and heat the room or space. It operates quietly and has a lower chance of having any ignition hazards when compared to other types of heaters.
This type of heating system uses a furnace or heat pump to warm the air and releases it through ductwork and vents. Cold air is pulled into the system where it is filtered and heated. The filter then gets rid of any allergens and dust that could be brought in with the air. It is the only energy efficient heating system that is able to combine heating and cooling.
BTU stands for British thermal unit which is a measurement of how much heat energy is used to raise the temperature of one pound of water. The ‘H’ refers to how many BTUs are used in an hour.
