Getting the right heating for your business is vital to controlling bills as well as providing a comfortable environment for staff and or customers. Achieving a comfortable temperature can increase productivity and also ensure that customers stay longer! Whether you have a showroom, office, warehouse or shop, getting the heating right may seem like a bit of a minefield if you don’t know what you are doing.
To the untrained eye, it may seem a simple solution to buy cheap plug-in style heaters from a DIY store. However, although cheap to buy they will soon prove very costly to run and draw huge amounts of electricity. It is also worthwhile checking your commercial insurance policy too as some exclude cover for certain things if you have portable gas or electric heating in use.
Cheaper, portable style heaters often have extremely cheap internal components too, including thermostats which are very inaccurate and usually lead to overheating or under-heating. This in turn makes the space very uncomfortable or even overwhelming in some cases and also results in very high electricity consumption – ultimately reflected in your bill.
