Outdoor heating is a very timely subject due to restrictions on indoor capacity during the COVID19 pandemic. Utilizing outdoor spaces to expand floor space helps building owners of churches, campgrounds, gyms, restaurants, breweries, wineries, etc. stay open. ​

Building owners, contractors & engineers alike will benefit from this free, 1-hour webinar by learning proper sizing to keep customers comfortable, keep energy costs down & keep businesses open longer as we head into winter. Topics covered include:

  • Why infrared heat is ​better than “hot air heat”​ in terms of efficiency & occupant comfort
  • Types of customers & buildings that benefit from infrared heating
  • Rules of thumb for proper sizing & installation of infrared heaters
  • Real life installation examples
  • Resources available from Roberts-Gordon to pursue outdoor heating opportunities

 

For immediate help designing heating systems for an outdoor space, just answer a few questions & we’ll take it from there!

 

How to Properly Apply Infrared Heat in Loading DocksClasses for HVAC

Instructor: Don Larsson
[email protected]
 
Learn about the effectiveness of infrared heat for specific areas such as loading dock doors for distribution centers, manufacturing areas and warehouses. Correct placement of heaters within the perimeter of a facility usually involves loading dock doors. With as many as 600 loading dock doors in a single facility, the correct application of heaters is very important. Infrared heating has an added benefit over forced air heating due to the infrared factor. This, along with re-radiance, will be explained in detail. Understanding the physical properties of infrared energy will also be learned. Our CORAYVAC® system has been the leading heating product in Federal, Industrial and Commercial applications for decades. The benefit of “Burners-in-Series”, compared to “Unitary Burners” and “Parallel Burners” will also be covered.
