Fuel Deliveries for Temporary Heaters

temp heat fuelingA great service that Hart provides is fuel deliveries for temporary heaters. Whether you have an outdoor event during a cold season, an unexpected loss of a heating source, a construction site that requires temporary heating, or you just need some extra warmth for a service you are providing – Hart has you covered.

Temporary heating has many benefits. Depending on your needs and the environment, Hart offers fuel for two separate types of temporary heat.

Types of Temporary Heating

  • Indirect Fired Heaters. These heaters are frequently fueled by dyed diesel, propane, heating oil, or natural gas. The main element that separates these heaters from other temporary heating sources is that the flame is contained in a burn chamber, where cool air passes over and around a heat exchanger and warm air is ducted into the building.
  • Direct Fired Heaters. These heaters are the most efficient temporary heating source, as they convert 100 percent of the fuel being used into heat. Direct heaters use a direct flame, much like a gas stove or gas barbeque grill.

Choosing Your Temporary Heating Source

  • Your location. Certain cities have regulations against temporary heating sources and the types of fuel used. In New York, for example, propane heat is not allowed so having a trusted partner for diesel delivery is essential in those areas.
  • Mobility. For some temporary heating sources, the ability to transport them easily is important. Hart can provide fuel delivery anywhere in the country, even hard-to-reach places, but if you plan to move your unit from place to place, you will need to consider which temporary heating source is easiest to transport.
  • Safety. Because a direct heater uses an open flame, it is important to consider where you will be using the heater. It is not advised to use these in a setting where there is low air ventilation. A safer alternative is an indirect heater, as these have no open flame and can be used in spaces with dry air and low air movement.
  • Efficiency. If you are hoping to run a temporary heating unit for a low-cost, researching which source has the most cost-effective maintenance and cost to run may be important. In general, a direct heater may provide more efficiency vs. an indirect heater.
