Tube Heaters

Infrared Tube Heaters – COMMERCIAL and INDUSTRIAL HVAC

Custom Design & Installation of IR Gas Tube Heaters – Michigan

When it comes to heating large industrial or commercial spaces, like warehouses, manufacturing plans, storerooms, body shops, loading docks, etc., the most effective and efficient system is infrared heating, also referred to as radiant heating or Infrared Gas Tube Heating.

Similar to the sun, infrared heating systems work by producing radiant energy (by burning of methane or propane), that, once absorbed by on object is transformed into heat. Thus, gas infrared heaters produce an optimal ambient temperature the natural way, by warming up floors, equipment, people, just like the sun.

Tube Heater Design

Infrared heating systems have many benefits:

  • energy efficient – generally over 90% efficiency
  • IR tube heaters are cost efficient
  • as infrared heaters can be used to heat up precisely the area you need (as opposed to forced air, that distributed in the entire space), they can increase comfort while reducing costs.
  • low maintenance
  • a tube heater is long lasting
  • environmentally friendly
  • IR Heat provides increased comfort
  • useful in areas that can’t be served by traditional heating equipment, like entryways, or areas open to the outside.

Extensively used in industrial settings, infrared heating systems are similar to radiant floor heating systems.
Infra-red gas heaters heat up large spaces by producing infrared energy that is absorbed by the floor, which in turn radiates it to its surroundings.
