Take Advantage of Our Garage Heater Knowledge

Garages aren’t known for being warm, comfortable spaces to work, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be. With the help of a garage heater, your commercial or industrial environment can become a warm, dry place to work.

Garages can often feel quite cold and damp, especially during cold weather but it needn’t be that way. As they are quite confined spaces, often lined wall to wall with spare parts and tools.

However, it is essential that your garage interior is kept warm and dry to protect all those parts, tools and vehicles that you may have stored in there, let alone your staff . That’s where investing in a heater that’s specific to the environment can come in handy. Providing reliable warmth and helping to keep the air within your garage dry and moisture free, our range of heating systems is perfect for all types of garages or workshops.

No matter whether you own a small one-vehicle garage or a larger, warehouse-like commercial car garage, we have a selection of gas and oil heaters for you to choose from which suit a variety of needs and requirements.

We know that many businesses and individual customers are working to a tight budget, which is why we aim to provide a selection of products that covers a wide range of budgets. No matter how big or small your budget is, we are sure that we will have a product to suit both your budget and your needs.

There are four main types of garage heaters available: electric, natural gas or propane gas and oil. Electric heaters are easy to install, efficient, and require little maintenance. You simply plug them in when needed, adjust the thermostat to the desired temperature, and unplug when you’re done, but the larger outputs output units require 3 phases /400Volt supply.

Gas heaters and oil heaters are often the most inexpensive option, but they require access to a natural gas supply. Propane heaters need a propane tank, and oil require an oil tank

Benefits of Installing a Garage Heater

When you choose the right type of heater for your garage, it’s relatively inexpensive to run and much cheaper than insulating the whole space.

For garages that house workshops, a heater is essential. It’s hard to get anything done if you have to bundle up in winter gear just to stay warm. Instead of shivering your way through every project, you can turn on the garage heater and work in comfort.

Finding the most suitable heating solution for a garage or outhouse may seem like a difficult task, but with the help of the experts that we have working with us here at Flexiheat UK, it’s much easier than you think! You’ll be feeling the benefits of your brand new gas or oil heater in no time!

Small Waste Oil Burners – Regulations

We have received notification from the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) that they intend to consult on whether the revised guidance in respect of Small Waste Oil Burners (SWOB) is clear.

Existing guidance allowed local authorities to consider them on a case by case basis and in most cases exempt them from the regulations and issue a simple permit costing less than £100 per year. This was generally referred to as being “exempt from the WID” (EU Waste Oil Directive).

The new guidance explicitly states that Small Waste Oil burners ARE within the scope of the Environmental Permitting (England & Wales) Regulations 2010. This clarification means that in order to continue to burn waste oil in a SWOB after 31st March 2016 it will be necessary to have a permit under Schedule 13A of the Environmental Permitting (England & Wales) Regulations 2010.

Although these will still be issued by local authorities, the fees will be set by DEFRA with an initial application fee of £3218 and an annual fee of £1,384. There is also likely to be additional monitoring requirements which will further increase costs.

This is likely to be cost prohibitive for most garages and the only alternative will be to burn non-waste fuel. It is important to note that the consultation does not ask whether SWOBs should continue to be exempt, only whether the revised guidance is clear.

NOTE: This change to the guidance affects England and Wales only, current guidance in Scotland and Northern Ireland already states that SWOBs are within the legislation.

If you currently have a permit issued by your local authority, it is likely that you will receive a letter from them shortly advising you of the changes.

Waste oil heaters, which really should be called multi oil heaters as they can operate on various alternative oils which do not require a licence from Defra. These units can be operated on 35 second heating oil, diesel, processed fuel oil (PFO) and bio oils such as rapeseed, linseed and other certain refined vegetable oils.

Our W401K small waste oil heater, which is manual ignition, does not require any adjustment to burning the above oils.

Our automatic SZ range of waste oil heaters requires a simple adjustment to the compressed air pressure and the temperature settings of the pre-heat oil thermostat.

Industrial Dehumidifier – The Flexiheat Way

Here at Flexiheat UK, we have an extensive range of Industrial Dehumidifier or Dehumidifiers as we should correctly state. We have a full range that goes from 30 litres per day all the way up to 120 litres per day. The smallest of our range is our T24 model, the baby of the range, which is really a light commercial dehumidifier, but will still extract up to 30 litres per day. It is perfectly suited to household dehumidification, or small offices, storage rooms etc. Some of its features include –

  • Integrated hygrostat
  • Two speed fan
  • Timer (power off) function
  • Temperature & Humidity display Tank ‘FULL’ indicator & auto shut off
  • 6 litre Water tank
  • Permanent drain option (with 1m hose supplied)
  • Removable filter
  • Castors for easy mobility (removable)
  • Compact & light weight design

Small Domestic 30L 24hr Dehumidifier

Next we have our TK Range Industrial Dehumidifier, which has two units within the range –

The TK30 Unit – 30ltrs/24hrs and the TK60 Unit – 60ltrs/24hrs (at 30°C/90% relative air humidity)

These are only available as a 240 Volt Dehumidifier (we do dual voltage dehumidifiers -please see below) and  come as standard with hours counters and an integrated hygrostat, as well as hot gas defrost which ensures higher efficiency, with less down time. Of particular interest to the rental market, is that the TK dehumidifier is stackable, saving you valuable storage space and making them easier to transport. The Kroll TK range of dehumidifiers are designed to cope with demanding site conditions, spending their time on hire.

TK main features are ;-

  • Integrated hygrostat
  • Steel casing, powder-coated
  • Hours counter
  • Drip pan
  • Hot gas defrosting
  • Stackable
  • Drip pan
  • Modularly extendible

TK Range Industrial Dehumidifier

Then we have our “TEIndustrial Dehumidifier range, one of the biggest problems with refrigerant dehumidifiers is that when the temperature in the area being dried drops, then the performance of the dehumidifier drops quite severely. Kroll being a German manufacturer and renowned for its technical expertise has come up with a solution to boost extraction rates at lower temperatures that we tend to see in the UK and Northern Europe. That engineering solution is to add a 2 kW electric heating element prior to the evaporator, which increases the air temperature, allowing it to hold more water vapour which is then removed by the evaporator. This makes the TE range of dehumidifiers extremely efficient, often removing the need to add additional heating to the area being dried, and cutting down on the time required to do the job of drying the area. The drying capacity of this range is from – 30ltrs/24hrs To -120ltrs/24hrs (at 30°C/90% relative air humidity)

TE main features are –

  • Steel casing, powder-coater
  • Hours counter
  • Hot gas defrosting
  • Drip pan
  • Hygrostat connection

TE Dehumidifiers

And last of our Industrial Dehumidifier range is our Dual Voltage Dehumidifier, which is available in two models, The T20D is a 20/ltrs a day unit and the T40D is a 40/ltrs a day again  at 30°C/90% relative air humidity. With their unrivalled versatility these Kroll dual voltage dehumidifiers are a popular choice throughout the hire and flood restoration industries where they help reduce the speed of drying times and reduce water damage. The come as standard with hours counters
