Benefits Of Cabinet Heaters
It’s not hard to see why so many businesses use cabinet heaters. As a warm air unit, they’re incredibly versatile. You can have them placed almost anywhere you want them, so you can full warm a space, leaving no cold spots during the coldest months.
As a cabinet heater is free standing, it’s very easy to access it for servicing and adjustments, as needed. That’s unlike suspended heaters, that will need height platforms to reach and work on them.
There’s some very high tech heaters out there, so you can find something that works with your needs. For example, you can find a cabinet heater with password protected temperature control system, so heating stays consistent.
Legal Requirements For Cabinet Heaters
If you’re using cabinet heaters in your building, then they will need to be tested and serviced at least every year. This is a legal requirement, as you’ll need a gas safety certificate every year to ensure those heaters are safe for use. You’ll also need a safety check if they use oil too, so these need to be done every year, too.
If you have the cabinet heaters serviced once a year, then you’ll be meeting your legal requirements. However, it’s often better to have them serviced every six months. That allows you to pick up anything that’s causing problems with the system before the next legally required service, and so handle it quickly.
