Cahill Industrial Warehouse Heaters: Keep Your Project Going Year-Round!

Providing crucial heating solutions at a remote construction site

A large commercial facility on the outskirts of a large city required critical heating to keep the project running during the cold winter months. The large open space required multiple heating units for ground thawing, concrete curing, heating hoardings, and keeping workers warm.

At one point, the project had 30 heaters on site. The large equipment footprint led to clutter and a string of safety concerns. Moreover, this led to high fuel usage and a frequent need for the heaters to be taken offline for refuelling and service.

As the next winter approached, the contractor felt a severe need to reduce the equipment footprint and wanted to declutter the worksite. The contractor approached Cahill to provide a more effective heating solution.

Cahill replaced the 30 heaters on site with 14 CH15HS units, which feature the patented JetHeat technology. Although fewer in number, the Cahill heaters, with fans that produce 20″ of static, were able to heat the space more effectively by using split duct streams to deliver air even to the remotest corners of the site.

The timely switch to Cahill for heating solutions saved the customer time and money. With a reduction in the number of heaters on site, the contractor realized huge fuel savings. The site was effectively decluttered, eliminating the prior safety concerns. The comparison of heating technologies and fuel cost savings is presented below.
