The Importance of Temporary Heating Solutions for Construction Sites

Construction doesn’t stop when the temperature starts to drop, and winter construction projects can be difficult enough without having to worry about adequate heating solutions. Temporary heating for construction sites is essential and having a heating strategy in place is important for both comfort and safety. As winter grows closer, here is why you should invest in rental heaters for your worksite.

How Temporary Heating Benefits Construction Sites

  1. Better Working Conditions: Morale and productivity can plummet if work conditions are uncomfortable. This can be especially true for crews working in frigid winter conditions. Without a way to warm up, work can slow and delay projects while also putting the health of the workers at risk. If too many fall ill due to the conditions, this can also exacerbate the delays. By investing in jobsite heating and enacting a strategy for workers to take breaks to warm up, you can help mitigate the risk of illness, increase productivity, and prevent unnecessary delays.
  2. Health and Safety: Safety is another big reason to invest in temporary heating for your worksite. Because hypothermia can set in when the body’s internal temperature dips below 95 degrees, it can be imperative that workers have a warm place to utilize after a period of exposure. This can help prevent worksite emergencies caused by workers being exposed to frigid temperatures for too long without relief.
  3. Surface Coating and Paint: When working in a space without interior heating that is exposed to cold and wet weather, paint and surface coatings can be put at risk. Cold and wet conditions can cause them to dry slower and even fail prematurely putting the whole job at risk. Utilizing a rental heater for spaces like this can help ensure the job is completed successfully and without the need for early repair, which can decrease customer satisfaction.
  4. Reducing the Risk of Mold, Corrosion, and Rot: A good heating strategy should also come with a moisture mitigation system to help remove moisture from the air and dry things out. While this is also useful for keeping the work crew comfortable, it can also be essential for preventing rot, mold, and corrosion growth on building materials lumber, and metal components. If this aspect isn’t covered, you could risk using compromised materials that could result in the job not meeting the standards of safety or quality.

Formulating Your Plan

When formulating your temporary hearing strategy you should consider where the heaters will be placed, as well as how you can insulate that area to prevent heat loss while still proving ample ventilation. A heater placed in a drafty tent, for instance, will need to work overtime to compensate for drafts and the amount of heat escaping.

You should also come up with a schedule of rotation to ensure that all crew members get adequate breaks from the cold temperatures. Having a rotating schedule can ensure that work can be consistently done without the need for putting everyone at risk for overexposure or hypothermia.
