If you’re running a warehouse, factory, or commercial greenhouse, you know how challenging it can be to heat a large space. You also know how keeping things warm can impact your bottom line. But it doesn’t have to be a struggle to keep warm in your warehouse. Hydronic unit heaters from Modine offer an efficient, safe solution for large facilities.
What are Hydronic Heaters?
Hydronic heaters use water or steam, recirculated in a loop within the unit, to provide radiant heat, focusing the warmth with louvers, fans, or blowers into the area to be heated. Boiler systems providing the water or steam can run on gas, electricity or oil.
What are the Benefits?
Modine’s hydronic unit heaters have several features that make them an ideal solution for large spaces, including:
- Versatility: Hydronic unit heaters are lightweight and come in a variety of configurations. They can be mounted on ceilings or walls, with fans and louvers direct heat where you need it most. Our Modine hydronic heaters also come with a selection of piping configurations, so you can bring water in from top, bottom, or sides.
- Safety: Explosion-proof motors are an optional feature for Modine’s hydronic unit heaters, allowing them to be used in hazardous areas. All units are designed with safety in mind, including leak testing and prevention, insulation, and overload protection.
- Efficiency: If you’re looking to save on energy costs, Modine’s hydronic unit heaters are optimized to deliver heat with the right ratios of air temperature, velocity and air volume for maximum comfort and minimum fuel cost. Our Low Temperature Water Heater is even designed to use excess heat from steam-electric plants, refineries or other processes for heating water.
