Whereas keeping office space cool is one thing, it's quite different to keep an entire warehouse cool in the summer months. However, our team at T.W. Hicks, Inc. is here to provide practical tips for keeping your warehouse cool and not going broke in the process. For starters, warehouse insulation will play a huge role as you're preparing your warehouse for summer. Moreover, painting your roof white will help reflect the sun's rays and reduce heat buildup.
From there, we simply recommend you implement floor and ceiling fans to keep air circulating throughout your warehouse as moving air feels cooler than stagnant air. There are specific ceiling fans designed for industrial warehouses that are high volume and slow speeds. These fans are especially efficient in commercial warehouses where doors are frequently opened and closed. Finally, our team at T.W. Hicks, Inc. recommends you pinpoint specific areas with the most hot air flow such as windows and dock doors. Using vinyl strip doors will help you keep hot air out while maintaining easy entrance and exit.
