10 Tips to Keep Your Indoor Jobsite Warm
  1. Invest in Portable Heaters
    Use high-quality portable heaters designed for construction sites. Propane, diesel, and kerosene heaters are suitable options, providing targeted warmth where need
  2. Strategic Placement
    Position heaters strategically to ensure even distribution of heat across the site. Focus on areas where workers will be most of the day, such as break rooms, workstations, and entrances.
  3. Seal Gaps and Openings
    Prevent cold drafts by sealing gaps in doors, windows, and walls. This will minimize heat loss and create a more energy-efficient workspace
  4. Insulate Temporary Structures
    If using temporary structures or trailers as offices or break rooms, consider insulating them to retain heat. This can significantly enhance comfort and energy efficiency
  5. Utilize Thermal Blankets
    In extremely cold situations, covering materials, equipment, and supplies with thermal blankets during off-hours can help prevent them from becoming too cold and maintain a more favorable working environment
  6. Implement Radiant Heating
    Radiant heaters can warm objects and people directly, rather than heating through the transfer of warmair like traditional forced air heaters. This approach is effective for outdoor work areas or spaces because the infrared radiant heat passes right through wind
  7. Monitor Ventilation
    While it’s essential to keep the site warm, it’s also important to ensure the correct ventilation maintain air quality and safety. Fuel-fired heaters use up oxygen and therefore, proper ventilation helps to replenish the oxygen depleted from the heater burning fuel. In addition, many forced air heaters require extra ventilation to prevent the buildup of fumes that cause headaches and other health related issues. This is a benefit of radiant heaters that generally burn fuel much cleaner, have no smell, and no fumes.
  8. Use fans for extra air circulation
    Proper air circulation offers multiple benefits regardless of the heater of your choice. For forced air heaters, this helps to lessen the concentration of fumes and spread the air and reduce the smell and possible headaches. For radiant heaters, extra fans will help spread the heat to all areas of your shop much fasters sine they don’t rely on blowing air to transfer heat
  9. Layered Clothing
    Advise workers to wear layered clothing that can be removed or added based on their comfort level. This allows them to find the right temperature throughout the day. Remember, you can always take off layers if you or employees get too warm.
  10. Regular Maintenance
    Regularly service and maintain your heating equipment to ensure it functions efficiently and safely throughout the colder months.
