Why Temporary Heating Works for You
Temporary heating allows your staff to work in safety and comfort. However, that is only the first of many advantages. Projects and materials are also assisted. Here are some examples of how temporary heating can benefit your business and your projects:
- Paint and joint compound can dry and cure properly
- Stucco and plaster can set up without worry about damage from freezing and thawing
- Concrete and brick are protected from ice crystals forming that can weaken them
- Equipment can operate safely and properly
- Exposed plumbing is protected from freezing and bursting
- Concrete can cure properly
- Ground thaw units let digging work proceed
Flexibility makes temporary heating work. The temporary heating equipment follows the crew as project sites shift, or you work in different areas at a job site.
ProGas Puts Safety First!
Temporary heating equipment—when used correctly—is a safe and cost-effective way to keep jobsites and workers warm and projects on track. When it comes to best practices for temporary heating safety, ProGas will assist you. Here are some guidelines.
- Read and reread the operating instructions for your temporary heating equipment. Everyone who will be working near the equipment should read it.
- Check that your temporary heaters have a 100% safety shutoff valve.
- Before using any temporary heating equipment or propane cylinders, carefully inspect them to make sure parts and pieces look in order.
- Check and double-check that there is adequate ventilation in the area you are heating to avoid carbon monoxide buildup.
- OSHA regulations require a minimum of 1 to 3 feet of clear space around all temporary heaters. Make sure this regulation is followed!
- Never put combustible materials near temporary heaters.
- The heater must be used on a level surface, but never use it on hardwood floors.
