5 Ways to Maintain More Energy and Warmth in Your Warehouse This Winter

For most warehouse operators, this winter season will be just like the previous one  — a period that require you to spend a lot of money. However, this year, you can use these five cost-effective methods to maintain more energy and warmth in your warehouse this winter. 5 Ways to Maintain More Energy and Warmth in Your Warehouse This Winter

Update and maintain your thermal system: To ensure there’s efficient generation of heat in your warehouse, make sure the thermal system you use is in good condition. This will not only extend its life, but it will also help you evade safety risks posed by poorly maintained systems.

Insulate dock panel doors: This step will ensure heat loss is kept at the lowest level possible, especially if your space contains large warehouse doors. However, if you have several dock positions, investment may prove costly. Instead, consider purchasing insulation kits for each door. These are much less expensive and are easy to install.

Capitalize on low-use areas: Some areas in your warehouse are not used as often as others. You should keep these areas cooler than high traffic areas. You can do this by using air curtains and high-speed doors. These features can help control the temperature of low-use areas, while decreasing overall energy consumption in your warehouse.

Install large industrial ceiling fans: It’s not uncommon to find a 20-degree variance in temperature between your warehouse floor and ceiling. This warmth can be circulated to the floor with a ceiling fan, which can save you a great deal of money during the winter.

Use skylights and/or windows: Depending on the design of your warehouse, installing skylights could be impractical, but it’s still possible to strategically place windows and skylights to utilize solar energy and improve warehouse lighting.

Don’t lose any more profits in the form of utility bills this winter. For more expert advice on ways to maintain more energy and warmth in your warehouse, feel free to contact Hansberger Refrigeration and Electric Company any time of the year.
