HVAC Reznor Heating System | LP Gas Unit Heater

HVAC Reznor Heating System LP Propane Gas Unit Heater – this Reznor unit heater provides heating for warehouses, garages, and other open spaces which can be heated with unit heaters. Unit heaters are ideal for big open areas which need heating without duct work being used to channel the air into the space. Sometimes these unit heaters are also used in mechanical rooms for protection of the other HVAC equipment and piping to prevent freezing conditions inside the mechanical rooms. The unit heater can be quickly installed and put into service in only a few hours once electrical service and gas service is provided in the location where the unit heater will be located. This unit heater is located in a remote camp site where electricity is available but natural gas was not available. LP or Liquefied Propane is trucked in to fill large LP Propane tanks located near the buildings which use these unit heaters to produce heat. A propane piping system and a series of propane gas regulators were installed and these unit heaters utilize the propane in the tanks being fed by this piping system.

HVAC Tips: Helping You Learn

Having the proper humidity levels in your home or business is important not only for your health but also the amount of energy your HVAC systems use to keep you comfortable. If the humidity level is high in the summer you will not feel comfortable. If the humidity level is low in the winter you will not feel warm when the thermostat is set for an average temperature. This will result in turning the thermostat up to compensate and you will use more energy to stay comfortable. A properly designed and installed HVAC system will keep the proper levels of humidity in your home or business and save you money in energy costs by reducing the amount you use the HVAC system. For more information on humidity and maintaining the proper levels of humidity in your home please visit our humidity technical pages.
