Want to stay warm for less when working in poorly insulated farming sheds? Spot heating does the trick. These units are quick to install and will operate for less than you think. Here is how portable spot heating works and why they constitute a good alternative.

Heating of large and tall farm buildings is challenging for farmers during autumn and winter. One of the main issues is that warming up the entire indoor area is very expensive and most often unnecessary. Another fact is that these types of buildings are often poorly insulated – or not insulated at all.

Spot heating

Oil infrared heaters can heat up a selected object or zone in a building effectively and without heating the entire hall. The heat produced by this type of air heater is directed right at the object that requires heat.

Don’t stir up dust

Many sheds and other farm building are dusty, so it will often be beneficial not to generate any air movement. This makes infrared heaters ideal because they use radiation and not fans to distribute the heat. In addition, infrared heaters are very silent and can generate a lot of heat almost instantly after being turned on.

Infrared heaters in the farming industry

Diesel infrared heaters are ideally suited for open and semi-open spaces, where other means of heating are not as effective or even impossible to deploy. The spot heating nature and capability of these heaters enables them to heat a specific workstation, or, for example, de-ice water system components or specific agricultural machines. In tall and poorly insulated buildings, the infrared heaters do a great job at creating a high level of comfort without skyrocketing your heating costs.
