If you are a business owner, finding an effective and affordable way to heat your business in the coming winter months is a major priority. It also poses a significant challenge for business owners who are trying to heat large spaces. If you own a store, you need to keep your patrons warm and comfortable as they shop so that they stay and browse your products, rather than retreating to the warmth of their cars as quickly as possible. Similarly, if you manage a large office space, keeping the area warm during the winter will help maintain employee morale and boost productivity throughout the workday.
A great option for business owners looking to heat large spaces is central gas heating. By installing a gas furnace in your building, you can keep a large area warm and comfortable all winter, without breaking your business’s budget. Read on to find out more about the benefits of choosing central gas heating for your business.
Why a Gas Furnace Is Ideal for Large Spaces
The process through which a gas furnace generates and distributes heat makes central gas heating an ideal choice for business owners who are trying to heat large stores and workspaces. In the first step of the process, gas is burned in the furnace’s burner. It is then combusted in the heat exchanger, which generates the heat necessary to warm indoor air as it is blown in from the building’s ductwork, passing over the heat exchanger to capture the heat of combustion. In the final step, the hot air is blown into the supply ductwork of the building, which carries it to the areas that need to be warmed.
If you are heating a large space like a store or an office, the ductwork does not have to be very complex for the warm air to get where it needs to go. Depending on the location of the furnace, warm air can be distributed into the large area shortly after being heated, making a central gas heating system extremely effective while also minimizing energy loss.
Choosing an Energy Efficient Gas Furnace
Some business owners worry that central gas heating systems are not as “green” as electric heating systems. However, recent advances in gas furnace technology have significantly improved their energy efficiency. Many of the gas furnaces on the market today have an AFUE rating of 95% or even higher.That means that they use much less energy than the legacy systems that you might be familiar with — saving your business money and limiting the effects that your central heating system has on the environment.
