For many commercial and industrial buildings that do not require space cooling, non-centralized equipment such as unit heaters provide space heating to building occupants. Unit heaters are a traditional method of providing heat in large commercial and industrial facilities throughout the U.S.
Technologies that are commonly used in heating and ventilation of large open spaces are air turnover, recirculation, make-up air, infrared, unit heating, and high temperature heating and ventilation (HTHV).
Commercial Heating Solutions
According to the DOE, unit heaters account for nearly 18% of primary space heating energy use for commercial buildings, specifically in warehouses and distribution centers. Much of this space heating energy is wasted because of inefficient or outdated technologies. Cambridge Air’s line of heating systems for commercial buildings are high efficiency solutions that help reduce wasted energy while providing lower operational costs and improved comfort.
Industrial Heating Solutions
Similarly, industrial heating solutions from Cambridge are designed to provide lower operational costs and help mitigate wasted energy by utilizing state-of-the-art HTHV technologies. While industrial space heating is similar to commercial, the key difference is the application they are best suited for. Where commercial heating solutions are ideal for warehouses, distribution centers, and auto transport facilities; industrial heating solutions are best suited for manufacturing plants, mills, wastewater treatment plants, factories and other similar building types.
What is High Temperature Heating and Ventilation (HTHV) Technology?
High Temperature Heating and Ventilation, also known as HTHV, is a technology classification created by the Department of Energy (DOE). HTHV products provide a discharge temperature that is greater than or equal to 150°F and a temperature rise greater than or equal to 140°F. HTHV heating systems have the ability to heat and ventilate large commercial and industrial spaces. HTHV technologies are deemed to reduce energy consumption and increase energy savings in commercial sectors throughout the U.S.
