What You Need to Know About Unit Heaters

The cold season is quickly approaching as the leaves have fallen from the trees and temperatures are dropping quickly. Now is the perfect time to discuss the importance of unit heaters and how they can positively impact both commercial and residential spaces. 

Modine’s range of electric, gas, and hydronic unit heaters provide a solution that is designed to supply the necessary heating needs at a cost-effective rate. The size of these units makes them convenient for smaller workspaces like garages, but they provide the ability to heat something as complex as a greenhouse or factory. They are easy to install as well. All you have to do is position it where you would like, install the vent system and connect the power and fuel source, and it’s ready to go.

Effinity™ Commercial Gas-Fired Unit Heater

For building managers in the commercial space, Modine’s Effinity™ is one of the most efficient unit heaters available in North America for commercial and industrial gas-fired unit heaters. It operates at up to 97% thermal efficiency, which introduces dramatic savings on energy costs and CO2 emissions. This efficiency is created because of our secondary heat exchanger technology and our robust tubular primary heat exchanger design. These units come equipped with Building Management System (BMS) integration capabilities, which allows them to be added to existing BMS quickly.

Hot Dawg® Separated Combustion Gas-Fired Unit Heater

For small businesses, such as garages, the Hot Dawg® Separated Combustion Gas-Fired Unit Heater is a great option. The separated combustion unit draws 100% of the combustion air from outside, making it a great choice for those working in a woodshop or an area where flammable materials are regularly used. The unit reduces common concerns about dusty, dirty, or humid applications. The sealed compartment provides a barrier for the combustion gas valve, ignition control, manifold, and burners from the environment. Operating on natural or propane gas, the heater has 100% shut-off with continuous retry to allow for safe ignition. This unit is designed to be easily installed one inch from the ceiling using only two angle brackets.

No matter if you are homeowner looking to keep their garage warm while working on projects or a facility manager looking for the best heating option, Modine’s unit heaters provide the perfect solutions to keep you warm this winter.
