Your Temporary Heating Options

temp heating flagstaff, az At this time of the year, average nighttime temperatures in Flagstaff and nearby surrounding communities drop well below freezing. Most of us would choose to stay safely indoors with the heat cranked up to a nice toasty level.

But for the construction crews that build new developments in our part of Arizona, that’s not always possible. If you manage a construction site, ensuring reliable temporary heating is crucial. Your employees depend on it to be safe and productive. Plus, your project’s integrity requires adequate temperature control in the winter.

Why Are Temporary Heating Solutions Important for Construction?

First and foremost, your crew needs dependable and robust heat to work safely. Whether you’re talking about a direct-fired device like a torpedo or salamander or an indirect-fired product that draws outside air and blows it into the worksite, temporary heating solutions keep workers healthy and comfortable. This comfort ensures they’ll have full use of their faculties and can focus.

Temporary heating is vital to the integrity of your building. Severe temperature fluctuations can cause concrete foundations to crack. They can delay the breaking of frozen ground and cause ice crystals to form in brick and cement. Paint, spackle, joint compound, and other materials may fail to dry correctly if temperatures are low.

The solution to all these issues is a well-considered and well-fueled temporary heating plan.

What Advantages Does Propane Heating Have?

There are various options for your construction site’s temporary heating, including natural gas, propane, diesel, and electricity. Propane, however, offers many advantages that others don’t.
