When it comes to keeping a warehouse warm, many business owners choose to go with an air handling unit. They’re a simple system that give good heating distribution, and can be controlled directly. If you have one installed in your business, then you’ll need to have it serviced regularly. When should you have an expert check it over?
There are lots of different ways that you can heat a warehouse, and most of them rely on several different units being placed in the building to keep it warm. An air handling unit is different as a warm air unit, as it’s one unit that distributes the warm air throughout the whole warehouses.
The unit is usually kept on the roof, and a series of ducts moves the warmed air through the building, in the same way as an air conditioning unit would. The unit lets you place heating ducts wherever they’re needed, so you can be sure that there’s no cold spots throughout the building. It’s a good way to heat a larger space, as you have a lot of control over where the heat is sent.
Most units are controlled through a simple control unit that lets you dictate the temperature. You can also get models that allow for different outputs, or to reduce energy usage.
As like all machinery, your air handling unit will wear down over time. There’s lots of moving parts, and they all need to be checked over before they wear out. You need to be sure that you’re keeping an eye on your unit, so this doesn’t happen.

Legally, you have to have servicing done at least once a year. That’s required for you to get a gas safety certificate, so the heating system can legally be used. It’s essential that you have it checked at least once a year, to keep the system safe to use.
