Unit Heaters are typically installed in areas with high, vaulted ceilings. Most often, this means commercial properties such as warehouses or showrooms. But they can also be used residentially in homes with high ceilings and large open spaces that need to be kept warm. Depending on the type of unit heater you choose, they often heat larger volume areas without requiring much in the way of ductwork or expensive installation costs. They can be mounted on a ceiling or wall, and have a tasteful design that blends into most interior designs.
Unit heaters come in electric and gas options, as well as steam or hot water, to suit the needs of the homeowner or business. When mounted in place on the wall or ceiling, fans inside the heater will continue to blow out hot air until the desired temperature has been reached. They can be used alone or in conjunction with another heating source, such as a furnace, to effectively heat the space. Unit heaters are best utilized in large, open spaces like large vaulted rooms, office spaces, or commercial buildings. They do take up quite a bit of space, so installing them on or near ceiling level will best accommodate their bulk so they aren’t taking up valuable wall or floor space.
