Should I Consider Radiant Floor Heating for my Warehouse?

We’re in the height of winter, and chances are, you’ve seen your energy bills at the warehouse skyrocket. What if we told you there was a way to cut heating costs with just a simple rework of your industrial warehouse flooring?


Radiant Floor Heating from T.W. Hicks Inc.

T.W. Hicks specializes in warehouse radiant floor heating, particularly hydronic radiant floor heating, which is known for being a cost effective and low maintenance way to lower your heating costs. Floors are heated from the ground up using flowing water in the floors, so you aren’t paying to heat areas of your Texas warehouse that are unused and unnecessary to heat (like the tops of high warehouse shelves!). Airplane hangars are also great candidates for radiant floor heating because so much forced air can be lost as the hangar doors open and close. Heat is maintained more easily with radiant heating.


What are the Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating?

·      Cost Effective: As we mentioned above, warehouses can quickly see cost savings when radiant floor heating is installed. In fact, it’s not abnormal for a system to pay for itself in as little as 2 years!

·      Efficient: Ceilings in warehouses and airplane hangars are high. Who needs to heat the dark crevices of a warehouse?! You want the heat on the floor, near the people who need to stay comfortable. Radiant heating will heat people and objects near the ground, creating an overall more comfortable work environment.

·      Variety of Floor Coverings Available: concerned about what to put on top of your radiant floor? Do not be. A wide variety of industrial flooring solutions can be used on radiant floor heating with no issues whatsoever. You can still have the best warehouse flooring solutions, with the best warehouse heating system.
